"Calm Paradox -- Boots"

Calm Paradox is Texas native, Michelle Kennedy. Originally trained as a classical vocalist and a harpist, Michelle takes her jump at indie pop. Her songs are full of pretty direct lyrics which makes me wonder who her songs are about. For example Boots is about fooling around with a married man. Wouldn’t you be curious to wonder if this was based on a real life events? Her album How to Mind was released in March. - Ride the Tempo

"Utah women who rock"

Calm Paradox -- Michelle Kennedy is a driven girl determined to make things happen for herself without having to rely on anyone but her own spirit. Her most recent single, ‘Retrograde’, is a summer song that has you pressing repeat over and over and over. Until her new single, which hits tomorrow, comes to replace it. - Sloucher

"I feel the need to share it with you"

Sometimes it takes me a while to get around to posting, and that upsets me. I finally got a chance to listen to Calm Paradox (the project of Michelle Kennedy) and now I feel I need to share it with you. While I don’t usually like girl singers, Calm Paradox hits a certain vibe that I don’t mind one bit. I would say Kennedy comes of like a mix between Regina Spektor and Jenny Lewis, but it honestly depends on the song. Her style even reminds me of Tsunami Bomb at times, though the music is nowhere close to being as aggressive.

“Boots” is my favorite track at the moment, but it might just be because of the catchy synth line that calls the Strokes’ “12:51? to mind. Still, every song on How to Mind is well written and deserves at least a listen. Kennedy was smart enough to make sure the tracks didn’t all sound the same, and her voice is the only consistent thread throughout the album. ”Influenza Tiger” does the acoustic-to-rocker thing way too well, and “Dystopia” might be a good place to start for any Metric fans. Overall, this is a great debut for a 20 year old law student who should maybe reconsider her day job. Now take a listen below! - Racecar Spacecar


How to Mind (LP) - 2011



Michelle Kennedy is crazy. At age 19, she opened her own record label and started law school (the youngest in the school, two years running). At age 20, she released her first album and signed licensing agreements with MTV, HBO, and Viacom. At age 21, she's getting the recognition she's worked for. You can find Calm Paradox shredding on MTV's Friendzone and Snooki & Jwoww soundtracks. Her sophomore release is scheduled for early 2013.
