Hello Out There
Record Review by TC Krentz
|Michelle Malone's astonishing display of
talent is not to be missed by any music fan in her latest release "Hello
Out There". Her unique cross of pop & folk styles accompanied
by remarkable lyrics make for a record which will be driven to play over
and over again.
After a colorful history of record label hopping driven by her desire to maintain her autonomy , Michelle Malone's 9th recording has been released on her own label, SBS Records.
This is a collection of 12 beautifully crafted pop songs most of which are absolutely worthy of radio play.While many of the tunes can be categorized as folky, there is a nice dreamy rock feel to them. Her vocals are stunning; from harmonies & backs to the unique quality of her voice. She parallels with the likes of sweeter version of Suzanne Vega or Heather Nova. Check out "Superball" for a perfect example of the passionate style Michelle Malone has created for herself.
The contributing players on these recordings are exceptional. They
take a simple song"Caffeine and Catharsis" and color it with
incredible rhythm, adding a nice groove to these already infectious
tunes.This particular song also reveals Michelle's thought provoking
lyrical talent; "The body and the soul,
Michelle Malone is Atlanta's best kept secret, until now.
