Biography

Michele Moreno began her career as a backup singer for several California-based indie bands and then met talent manager Atallah Shabazz, who placed her on a tour of Latin America with Spanish superstar RAPHAEL. Upon returning to Los Angeles, Michele focused on film & TV scores. Her vocal credits include the feature film KINGDOM COME (starring Whoopi Goldberg) & HBOs SIX FEET UNDER.

Then in 2002, she landed an audition with the legendary RAY CHARLES. Her lush, smooth vocals won him over and she went on the road again, this time as one of five Raelettes on the RAY CHARLES East Coast tour. Michele then went down under for a year to Brisbane, Australia where she launched the BIRDIE MENDOZA show (jazz and Latin standards) to rave reviews.

All the while, she was composing & co-producing her own adult alternative pop songs with electronica arrangements. While drawing from masterful artists such as DIDO and ZERO 7, Michele began adding world influences to her music, such as Middle Eastern inspired vocals and ethnic instruments like hand chimes, Mandolin, Salsa horns, Asian mallet instruments and Djembe percussion. Strongly influenced by global-centric artists such as LISA GERRARD, DAVID BYRNE and THE BEATLES, Michele blends pop and world flavors to create a sound that is modern and mysterious.

Lyrics

If U Don't Mind

VERSE 1
Funny how, I can spend, so much time
Looking for the answer, in your mysterious mind
If I knew I wouldn’t be so, scared
And if I speak too soon, will you still be there?

CHORUS
(So) if you don’t mind I’ll just say
I found a love that’s swept me away
And if you don’t mind I’d like to reveal, That’s how I feel

VERSE 2
So many times I wanted to say
Those 3 little words that would give me away
Now you know I’m just a naked, girl
But from you there’s just one thing, I have yet to hear

CHORUS
(So) if you don’t mind I’ll just say
I found a love that’s swept me away
And if you don’t mind I’d like to reveal, That’s how I feel

BRIDGE
Will you keep your silence?
