Bringing us home." -  Patrick Avalon Tully

    Celebrity Juice Features Michele McLaughlin

    in Entertainment

    “McLaughlin is what I refer to as a "heart on her sleeve" composer, i.e. there is no subterfuge, no subtlety at work in her music - she presents her emotional intent of a song forthwith and front and center. It's a testament to her considerable talent that this baring of her soul always works so well, because in the hands of a lesser talent, the music would be melodramatic, overly self-conscious, and would grow tiresome. However, it's not just her technique and artistry, which is impossible to ignore, but also her artist's soul, which seems woven into every piece of music she writes. No matter how pyrotechnic she can be (and this woman can really play piano with the best of 'em), there is always the presence of heart, sometimes "in your face" and sometimes between the lines, but never hidden behind artifice."


    Bill Binkelman, Wind & Wire and Zone Music Reporter


    Michele McLaughlin is a self-taught contemporary solo pianist and composer. She has released fifteen albums, many of which have received multiple nominations and awards, including winning Album of the Year (Whisperings Solo Piano Radio), Song of the Year (Independent Music Awards) and Top Picks (Mainly Piano and SoloPiano.com). Her original solo piano compositions are often described as "musical storytelling" because the music paints a perfect picture of the story she is trying to tell. Michele says, “I've often been told that my music is "haunting and contagious", "relaxing and beautiful", "peaceful and touching". I've also been told that my music is "captivating" and that it transports the listener into worlds of imagination and wonder. For me though, my music is my story... it is my diary, my journal, my biography… a glimpse into my soul.
