Biography

In a galaxy far far away while on stage performing Shakespeare, Boback met G�nter Schulz and En Esch (of KMFDM). .....................
In 2001 En Esch and Guenter formed �Slick Idiot� and invited Boback to sing on their new album release �Dicknity� (Cleopatra Records). �Dicknity� spawned a popular club remix by Loopy of Hansel and Greytal FAME, �Merci Beaucoup� in which Boback tantalizes clubbers with a naughty little hook. Dicknity spawned the Remix albulm 'Redickoulous' in 2002. In 2004 'Slick' flew Boback back down to Schulz�s studio to collaborate again on their next release �Screwtinized� (Itchy Records). In 2005 Bobacks� singles 'Sunlight� and �I Once Fell� which are written by Boback, were produced and featured the talents of G�nter Schulz.
Boback's guitar style started with punk rock on a true vintage 69 strat, which somehow melted into a classical guitar preference. Her vocals went from rock to industrial and dance, and has settled on some fence between, soul, rock and jazz. Any one of Boback�s songs can be melted into a yummy pot of dance culture while still maintaining the intensity and soul of which it was written.

When the club mix of 'Merci Beaucoup' hit the clubs in New York it earned Michelle the title of 'vocal siren' (see lollipop review). Boback continues to work with a variety of musicians from the US and Canada. Boback has been known to engage the audience with props and lyrical fascinations. Never the same show twice, she cultivates musicians to constantly evolve her live shows.

Boback is also a respected member of the film community in Vancouver. Her first lead role in Creepy Six Films' 'Torched' (released 'Hell Hath No Fury') as the emotionally turmoiled 'Deanna' is now a horror cult hit.

Lyrics

I ONCE FELL

Written By: Boback

I once fell in love,

With someone I probably shouldnt of.

I once dreamt a dream,

That was not as surreal as it seemed.

Oh those dreams Ive had.

I once took a nap,

Under a big cherry tree.

And when I woke up,

Those cherries had fell around me.

Oh those dreams Ive had.

Chorus:

I once talked with you,

Sitting by an ocean of blue.

When you were far away,

I dreamt about you everyday.

And when Id wake,

Id cry at the feelings I thought.

Oh those dreams Ive had.

Chorus:

I once talked with you,

Sitting by an ocean of blue.

La, la, la, la,la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la x2

I once fell in love,

Under a big yellow sky.

And when I woke up,

I found I was ten miles high.

Oh those dreams Ive had.

La, la, la, la,la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la x2

SUNLIGHT

Written By: Boback

In the mornin’, you watch me breathe.

Sleepin’ on your arm.

Breathe in, soft and light,

You watch me breathin’ in the sunlight.

I smile at you with my eyes.

I watch your lips smile back at me.

Breathn’ becomes harder as we sweat in sunlight.

Well I get blinded with your sunshine.

Your sunlight, sunlight,

sunlight, your…

You pull me closer in the morning.

I watch you smile as you fuck me.

My eyes half open,

See your face burnt out from the sun behind you.

Your sunlight, sunlight,

sunlight, your…

I watch you laughn’ in the morning.

Skin sweats sweet in sunlight.

I watch you laughn’ in the morning.

Sex smells sweat in….

In Sunlight, in sunlight,

In Sunlight, in sunlight.

You pull me closer in the mornin’.

We both smile as we take time.

Breathn’ becomes hotter,

As we sweat in sunlight.

I’ve been blinded by your…

I’ve been blinded by your…

Your Sunlight, your sunlight, your

MMM ELIAS

Written By: Boback

Mmmm Elias

How could I have had

You all wrong.

Oh, how can we

Remain honest to the end

Mmmm Elias

Can you really be

Relied upon.

Oh how is yours and

My heart gonna hold on

‘Cause there,

there isn’t any other way

for me to hang on,

When my mind keeps sayin’

Your sweet, Elias.

Mmmm Elias

I gotta gotta keep

My pants on.

And oh how is it

That you’re the one

Who’s bein’ strong.

Whoa Elias

I wanted to give

It all away,

Ahhh sexy Elias

Forgive me for the things

I ‘ought to naught say.

But please,

Don’t let me run away

Because every time

I stay with you

It’s my mind,

It smells Sweet Elias.
