Michelle Malone at 620 State


Michelle Malone
October 12, 2012
Michelle Malone will perform live at 620 State in historic downtown Bristol on Oct 12. Armed with a bottleneck slide, blues harmonica, and her signature soul-filled vocals, Michelle Malone was born in the Deep South and grew up listening to her mother sing in the church choir every Sunday. When it came time to craft her own sound, she took those religious roots, blended in enough rock, folk, and blues to satisfy. The result is, Debris, a high-spirited stripped down blend of rootsy acoustic slide, gritty electric blues and explosive vocals that harkens back to the lost recordings of Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams and The Rolling Stones. 620 State Street, Bristol TN, 423-534-0139 or visit http://www.620state.com.
