Michelle Blanchard Band

Michelle Blanchard Band


My music has a strong rock influence with a pop twist. I would describe it as pop rock. I have remade the Usher song 'Love In This Club' with a hint of rock as well as several as my own original songs.


Music was always a huge part of Michelle's life while growing up in Whittier, CA. After relocating to Las Vegas, Michelle's dream started to come together. She started playing bass in coverbands before forming a band with some school friends and switching to lead guitar.

At the age of 16 and after years of writing and performing with her friends Michelle decided to take things to the next level. Committing to home schooling and started to co-write with her older sister, Michelle not only became the lead guitarist but also a key songwriter and lead singer of her new band - The Michelle Blanchard Band.

The sisters creative kinship has lead to more than 25 songs already with 6 appearing on the debut EP now being recorded in Los Angeles. Michelle is able to draw on both her rock guitar roots as well as some more pop leaning influences.

Also included on the EP is rock remake of Usher's smash hit 'Love In This Club' which reached #1 on the Billboard top 100 and sent the album Here I stand platinum.

While eager and open to experiment in various musical genres, Michelle's guitar and rock roots are never far from the surface. Crediting bands like Paramore and musicians like Melissa Etheridge and Slash as major musical influences. Michelle made personal commection with Slash at the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp in Vegas in early 2007. An avid guitar collector, Michelle has over 13 guitars already and sites her custom purple Roman of Ed Roman guitars as her favorite.

Mature beyond her years, Michelle in an admirer of the work that "To Write Love On Her Arms" does in the communities around the country. TWLOHA (www.twloha.com) is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. This is a cause that Michelle feels strongly about and will help spread the word during her upcoming live shows.
