Michelle Stewart

The excitement simply never stops at Writing on the Air. This week, we speak with singer-songwriter & visual artist Michelle Stewart. And if that wasn’t exciting enough, this will also be our first Fall Membership Drive show. That means we will be asking you for your financial support because, you guest it: running a radio station, and producing great local radio isn’t free, and we need you support!

We broadcast Writing on the Air every Wednesday from 6-7pm Central Texas Time on 91.7 FM KOOP.org. You can also stream us live on KOOP.org.

Listen to the whole interview with pre & after show commentary as well as all the Membership Drive talk.

Listen to the three songs Michelle performed live, and a little bit of commentary.

Gypsy troubadour, Michelle Stewart, has just returned to the U.S. after 7 years of living in Vietnam and Thailand. Her songs speak of love, pain, trial, and liberation, combining a strong feminine energy, a soulful voice, and smooth, yet lively, organic rhythms, she calls, “Gypsy Blues.”

Michelle was most recently invited to perform for the overseas branch of the U.S. Democratic Party, Democrats Abroad, for Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration in Vietnam’s capital in January 2013.

Michelle has just released her debut solo album, Sands of Time, written and recorded in a handmade bamboo bungalow in the mountains of northern Thailand. The album was mixed and mastered at DBS Studio, Bangkok.

Michelle’s songwriting has been featured on major cable and public television networks, reaching a global audience in 5 continents. Instrumentation is primarily voice, guitar, and mandolin, though originally a trained clarinetist, Michelle plays all instruments on her new album, combining both real and virtual instruments to achieve her sound.

Sands of Time is now available at Waterloo Records as well as on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify, and more.
