Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album. Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has remained one of America’s favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades.
Melissa Etheridge’s 2016 album “Memphis Rock & Soul,” her first since 2014’s critically lauded “This Is M.E.,” has received stellar reviews from the likes of Entertainment Weekly, Parade, Rolling Stone, American Songwriter and more.
The album features original material as well as interpretations of classic songs from the legendary Stax catalog, celebrating its artists and legacy and spotlighting the vital role Stax Records played in the Civil Rights Movement. Engineered by Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell, son of famed music producer Willie Mitchell, the album and tour include a number of top Memphis musicians, including the Hodges Brothers.
