"Passion and Conviction"

The melody is top notch. Love it. The lyrics have a great sense of humor to them. I keep singing it in my head days later. You're really creating your own sound and vibe, you sing with passion and conviction…a great vibe. I like the rawness and earthy feel, really takes you on a journey, a very fairytale feel.

"Pearl inside the Shell"

You could be the first to find out about her.

Michelle Dumond is one of those music gems that gets discovered by some record producer. She is a correlating image of great Canadian female artists, strong and interesting vocals, multi-talented musician, and unique but compelling lyrics. Dumond can laugh at herself and fill her well-orchestrated songs with whimsy.

So on a cold winter’s day in January, Dumond sat down and told me all about her musical inspirations and endeavors.

Her debut collection The Me Shell is a storyteller’s songbook, and just like that ethereal being she is, we have discovered a pearl inside the shell. - Kinda Mardham Bey - Lucid Forge


"Authentic"

Meshe is a true artist in every sense of the word. Her inner voice guides her to write songs that are deeply original and authentic without coming off as pretentious. I'm eager to hear what she will come up with next!

Meshe has an exhilarating unique sound. In this day and age when we're inundated with so many pre-fabricated pop stars, her fresh and authentic approach is truly welcome!

Meshe is an artist with vision and skill that is rare these days.

Bio

"Michelle Dumond (Meshe) is a free-spirited gypsy musician with the soul of a jazz singer and the playfulness of a burlesque performer. Bob Dylan would love her. Rufus Wainwright would drag her onstage with him. Leonard Cohen and Shakira would team up to adopt her.

She has the musical skills to establish credibility with a more artsy crowd and the earthiness and humor to make her more accessible to people like me who just love music.

She can convey all kinds of moods with that husky, alluring, commanding voice.

She can sing the fun “Bathtub Rag” about soaking in the tub and suddenly fog up the bathroom mirror by crooning invitingly, “So take off your clothes and wet your toes.”

She can handle a serious issue with a whimsical approach (“Humanity”).

She can also dim the lights, and turn into a classically-inspired dark gothic composer. “Sandra” and “Au Revoir” are orchestral tapestries of cello, piano, violin, and sweeping melodic drama.

She can do anything. She can sing anything, play anything, and seduce anyone. Go ahead and give in. "
