atlanta native michelle malone and her band will be back in town on may15th at the kirwood spring fling & tour of homes. on the heels of the release of her tenth studio album, grammy nominated “debris” through the thirty tigers record label, michelle promises to tear up the stage at 5:30 pm for festival attendees. michelle’s sound has previously been compared to sheryl crow, bonnie raitt, and lucinda williams, but we think she has a style all her own. a combination of southern rock ‘n’ roll, sultry blues, and down home slide guitar pleases crowds both young and old. better yet, we love michelle because she grew up right here in atlanta. like many southern singer-songwriters, michelle grew up singing in the church choir before striking out on her own at sixteen. she now resides in decatur, alabama, but we’re thrilled to have her back in town.
