Michelle Wright has been drawing rave reviews for her expressive voice and her distinctive style since the release of her debut CD Do Right By Me. Over the ensuing years, she has released monumentally successful albums in the United States and Canada and enjoys an international career, one that has seen her grace concert stages across North America, Europe, Africa, South America, Australia and Asia.
She is the first Canadian‐born artist in the modern era of country music to have a Top Ten hit in America with her breakthrough Arista Records Nashville release, “Take It Like A Man,” a Number One video on CMT‐USA (also for “Take It Like A Man”) and to win a major U.S. music industry award (the Academy of Country Music Top New Female Artist award in 1993). The string of fan favorite songs that followed included “He Would Be Sixteen,” “Guitar Talk,” Nobody’s Girl,” “Shut Up And Kiss Me,” and “Strong” amassing a total of twenty‐five Top Ten radio hits and more than forty major awards. In September 2011, Michelle was honored with induction into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
But characteristically Michelle is not content to rest on her laurels and 2017 took her to concert stages across North America as well as back into the studio to record new music with producer Bob Funk.
