MICHELLE MALONE: award winning singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer, road warrior. Maybe you’re feeling tired or a little broken, like you can’t take another step. Hearing this edgy soul sister from the South is just what you need. Rolling Stone has called her "raucous and jubilant". Her live show will have you laughing, crying and dancing in your seat. Michelle Malone "has the soul of a bluesman, the heart of a folk singer, and the guts of a rock and roll star wrapped up in one fiery bad ass" (NASHVILLE RAGE). Michelle Malone is "a master at mixing blues and Americana music” (GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE).


Michelle Malone is returning to High Cotton on the day her latest album is released, and you don't want to miss the celebration! Slings and Arrows is her 15th release, and it's a bluesy roots Americana feast for the soul - and how lucky are we that Michelle will honor the occasion with an album release party right here in Hartwell!



Raucous and jubilant - somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Shelby Lynne comes Malone alternating between soulful ballads and rowdy, riffy blasters. ” — ROLLING STONE


One of the best female vocalists I’ve ever heard - Malone is an extraordinarily gifted and accomplished.” — CHUCK LEAVELL (Allman Brothers, The Rolling Stones)


Equal parts guitar slinger and sweet songstress, with masterful lyrical introspection – sublime to raucous. ” — GUITAR WORLD



Malone was born and raised in Atlanta, GA by a musician mother with whom she toured in the summers. She grew up listening to her mother and grandmother sing in the church choir every Sunday when they werent on the road. She dropped out of high school at 16, lived in the streets and developed some nasty habits. After a few brushes with the law, she went back to high school and became the valedictorian. She attended Agnes Scott College with dreams of becoming a doctor, but was offered a record deal with Clive Davis at Arista Records, which looked alot more interesting to her than school.

After several major label releases, Malone is now an independent artist with 14 studio records to date and an impressive resume which includes high profile performances with everyone from Gregg Allman to John Mayer, the Atlanta Symphony to Ellen Degeneres. She has performed in 7 countries, toured as a performer in the Indigo Girls, in the new band led by SugarLand’s Kristian Bush, and in The Black Lillies. Day 2, produced by fellow Atlantan and Grammy nominee Shawn Mullins, spent 12 weeks on the Americana radio charts and received critical success. She has been honored with awards including 2x best albums, 4x best singer, 3x best acoustic guitarist, Best of Georgia Music awards, and 2 Grammy ballot nominations. Her songs have appeared in such films as Bam Bam and Celeste, All Over Me, Shotgun Jesus and television programs including True Blood, Dawson's Creek, Felicity, and Brooklyn South. Malone's songs have been recorded by Indigo Girls (for which she received both gold and platinum records), Antigone Rising, Hannah Thomas and Vistoso Bosses.

Malone also makes time for philanthropic endeavors such as fundraising/running for Team In Training/The Leukemia Society, and cycling with Team Earth Challenge from Atlanta to Yucca Mountain, NV in protest of the nuclear waste dumping. In 2012 she started a college scholarship fund for girls in need. In 2015, Michelle partnered with Moe's Music Matters national campaign to help support music in schools.

Malone has performed for TedX Peachtree, been honored with a Signature guitar slide modeled and named after her by Rocky Mountain Slides, was the keynote speaker at a SoCal high school graduation, and in 2014 was the rhythm guitarist and mandolin player for Kristian Bush of Sugarland. Michelle's latest recording, Stronger Than You Think, was released in 2015. She is currently writing and performing for her sanity
