About Michelle Branch
Michelle Branch’s complete name is Michelle Jacquet DeSevren Branch. Born on 2nd of July 1983.
She is an American singer, songwriter and well known guitarist.
Branch started singing at the age of only three. At eight she enrolled in voice lessons at "Northern Arizona" and by her fourteenth anniversary she received a guitar.
After one week she already composed her first song, titled "Fallen". Branch was home schooled after attending two years at the "Seadona Red Rock High School" so she could focuse more on her music. The parents suported her by booking local gigs in Sedona and helped her release her first independent album, "Broken Bracelet". The album included songs she wrote when she was 14-15 years old.
In August 2001 she released her first major debut album, "The Spirit Room" with Maverick Records and producer John Shanks. In 2002 she won the "MTV Music Awards Viewer’s Choise Award" with the single "Everywhere" from the album.
In 2003 she released a new album, "Hotel Paper" , that made her number two on the "Billboard Top 200". She sold over one million copies and received a Platinum certification by the RIAA.
In collaboration with her backup singer Jessica Harp, she founded "The Wreckers" – a pop rock and country band.
They released their first album "Stand Still, Stay Pretty" on May 2006 and also contributed to Santana's album "All That I Am", with the song "I'm Feeling You".
The album was sold in nearly 1 million copies but the band unfortunately split in 2007. In 2013 Branch confirmed that she is working on a new pop-rock album.
Among the artists that influenced her she mentioned lots of well known bands and artists, that we also have on our website. From the inspirations' list, we mention great names such as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Queen, and many, many others.
