A fundraiser for the Princess Theater with Michelle Malone Band! Michelle Malone returns to Decatur, AL with her heart-swelling, ferocious blend of Americana rock and country blues that have earned her both gold and platinum records and 2 grammy nods. Malone says she has found that her job is really to bring joy and build community through music. She will be armed with her band - Trish Land, Reno Roberts, Benjamin Williams, and Josh Birmingham. Expect sweet soul-stirring songs and rowdy rockers from most of her 14 of her albums. A great time will be had by all! Compared to most musical artists in the Americana genre, Michelle Malone seems like a pair of distressed blue jeans amidst a sea of pantsuits. Unlike the surplus of self-professed rootsy rebels, one listen to this woman from GA and you know you’re hearing the real thing. A singer, songwriter, and guitarist whose music is informed by blues, Alt-country, and roadhouse rock, Michelle Malone's performances can go from contemplative and coffeehouse quiet to rowdy and "Twin Reverb on 10" loud at the turn of a dime, and her passionate, uncompromising style has won her a loyal following, especially in the American South. She's a wild-haired Rock Goddess, political singer/songwriter, passionate performer with a bottleneck slide – no single characterization tells the whole story. Over the course of Malone’s career, she’s collaborated with such varied artists as Gregg Allman, Bon Iver and Indigo Girls, released more than a dozen records and went indie when it still took guts. Equal parts mean guitar slinger and sweet songstress, Michelle Malone artfully balances her penchant for ripping it through the roof with masterful lyrical introspection and vocals that range from sublime to raucous. "The kind of singer and songwriter who can jolt things into overdrive." NEW YORK TIMES "raucous and jubilant alternating between soulful ballads and rowdy, riffy blasters." ROLLING STONE "4 out of 5 Bunnies "... Malone churns up those Southern roots with the vigor of Lucinda Williams while embracing her inner Keith Richards." PLAYBOY MAG 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 woman” NASHVILLE RAGE “Malone is one of the best female vocalists I’ve ever heard.” - Chuck Leavell (Allman Brothers, The Rolling Stones)
