"Michelle Joly"

Michelle Joly has mastered of one of the most evocative and compellings styles of folk / singer-songwriter music we've encountered, and her new single ‘One Way Lane’ shows why you'll be hearing a lot more of her. - Marquix Global Network


“Michelle Joly has released her new single, “Preach.” A seasoned performer, Joly recently performed at Relay For Life 2017 and East Side Pride. Carrying themes of self-empowerment and love, the track is a soulful, jazz ode that is driven by Joly’s passion for music. “Don’t preach to me about wrong or right / I’ll be the one to define my life,” she sings, her strong-willed, rich vocals linger atop the crisp instrumentals. The music video captures Joly’s words perfectly, documenting an encounter with a young man on the street. Purchase the song on iTunes here, and watch the music video below.”

"Michelle Joly Graces Us With New Song "Never Been Loved Before""

September 2,2018 marked a very special day for Michelle Joly. For starters, it was her birthday and it was also the release of her new track “Never Been Loved Before” ft. Krusso. This track has a very playful instrumental to it with its mainly percussive melody. Joly’s vocals are no doubt soothing and delightful to the ears, but adding Krusso to it makes it a perfect match. Lyrically the song is very well written telling a story of two people who are trying to convince each other that they are meant to be. It is a really touching love song that gives the listener anew take of I "I love you” by saying that she’s going to love said person like they have never experienced or will experience which emphasizes the amount of expression she has for this person. It’s a lovely duet which helps encase the story of the two lovers in the song. - Buzz Music
