Michelle Branch Tickets for Sale

b. 2 July 1983, Flagstaff, Arizona, USA. This US singer-songwriter was raised in Sedona, a small town in Arizona. After receiving a guitar for her fourteenth birthday, Branch began writing her own songs and playing live gigs around her home-town. Before reaching 18 she had recorded an independently-released debut album and opened for Hanson. A recording contract with Maverick Records followed, with her second album appearing a few months later. Recorded with Melissa Etheridge producer John Shanks, The Spirit Room was buoyed by the success of the radio-friendly singles "Everywhere" and "All You Wanted". In 2002, her duet with Santana on "The Game Of Love" became a major transatlantic hit.

Branch's preference for slick pop rock and self-absorbed lyrics has earned her inevitable comparisons to both Etheridge and Alanis Morisette, although Cat Stevens remains her mentor. Nevertheless, the quality of her material marks her out as one of the leading figures in the new wave of musically literate, good-looking female singer-songwriters.

This savvy 16-year-old creates simple, spry music that contains the acoustic guitar strumming of Folk Pop, the sweet vocal sounds found in many a Twee Pop band (lots of ba-ba's and da-da's), and Beck-ish dance beats.

Just three years after Michelle Branch first picked up a guitar at the age of 14, she was signed to Maverick Records with an album in stores. Branch's debut, The Spirit Room, was produced by John Shanks (Melissa Etheridge, Chris Isaak) and issued in August of 2001, spawning the leadoff hit single/video "Everywhere." Although she lists such classic rock acts as Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and Jimi Hendrix as prime influences, Branch's music is more akin to such modern-day female artists as Lisa Loeb, Alanis Marinette, and Melissa Etheridge.
