Our guest today on Songversations Podcast is Michelle Little.
Originally from the Central West of NSW, Michelle has been performing for over 25 years. The artist who is influenced by the likes of Patsy Cline and Loretta Lyn has graced stages from the Sydney Opera House to The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. The singing-songwriting schoolteacher now lives in Sydney’s Inner West, where her love of country music – influenced and nurtured by her parents – continues to be at the heart of Michelle’s albums.
“Hear Me Now” was Michelle’s first full studio album, having previously released an Ep called “That’s What I Like”.
These recordings were received enthusiastically by the country music community in Australia and the release of a live recording from her Patsy Cline tribute show in 2015 sparked interest from international listeners.
As is the case in everyone’s life, Michelle’s story includes many setbacks and challenges. However, inspired by the strong female country singers she grew up listening to such as Patsy Cline and Loretta Lyn, Michelle continues to use her life experiences as fuel for her songwriting.
Michelle’s new album “Invincible”, produced by Michael Carpenter, of Sydney’s ARIA nominated and Golden Guitar winning studio, Love Hz, is out now and is a collection of songs that reflect her challenges and personal journey of the last few years.
