Acoustic Soul with a Funk flavour, flirting shyly with Jazz. The original compositions have quirky lyrics, yet have easily identifiable themes. The smooth chord progressions support strong melodies. Vocally it's sensuous harbouring many beautiful tones.

Biography

Michelle has been playing acoustic guitar and singing for approximately 9 years. Her interest in performing professionally developed as audiences continued to be drawn in to her music and stage presence. Akin to searching for a compatible and reliable boyfriend, Michelle's search for a compatible and reliable bass player hasn't been without drama. Earlier this year at a Sharon Jones concert, Michelle got talking to Tom & Nick from the soul band "Busted Onions" Both guys were keen to work on other projects with a soul/ funk feel... and hence. Influences and inspirations would be Sharon Jones, Eryka Badu, Marvin Gaye, Meshell Ndegeocello, Michael Franti .... anything smooth and groovy with a sexy base line.
Melbourne Venues we have performed at: Manchester Lane, Bar Open, Wesley Anne, Empress Hotel

Lyrics

Japanese Flowered Fabric

Written By: Michelle Hines

I almost forgot about you when I first put on this dress
I almost forgot that I ever lost my confidence
You once said to me there was beauty outside and in
I almost forget that you changed your mind when it's this dress that I'm wearing

I still have my integrity
Even though nuclear weapons could be manufactured with my rage

Chorus
If only you could see me in this dress
Japanese flowered fabric and a sexy halter neck
If only you could see me wearing this dress
Japanese flowered fabric and subtly designed for your regret

I still can see the beauty in the world
Even though there were mornings when I could smash windows with my gaze

Chorus
If only you could see me in this dress
Japanese flowered fabric and a sexy halter neck
If only you could see me wearing this dress
Japanese flowered fabric and subtly designed for your regret

Bridge
For your regret
It's backless and strapless, it shows off my thighs
Elegant, intelligent, sophisticated design
But it's not for you this time

I almost forgot, I almost forgot

Chorus
If only you could see me in this dress
Japanese flowered fabric and a sexy halter neck
If only you could see me wearing this dress
Japanese flowered fabric and subtly designed for your regret
