Michelle Shocked

For almost 30 years, acclaimed picker-poet Michelle Shocked has generated compelling lyrics and mnemonic melodies with a musical talent so eclectic it's difficult to categorize. Her musical career was sparked by a bootleg recording made around a Kerrville Folk Festival campfire on a Sony Walkman. Following the phenomena of the Texas Campfire Tapes, she produced a trilogy of Grammy-nominated albums and journeyman song cycles on her independent label. In 2009, she launched Roadworks, a 5-year touring project to develop her current work-in-progress, Indelible Women. An as-yet-unpublished book, Bootleg This, chronicles the social media firestorm she ignited in 2013. At present she is passionately focused copyfight and the Artists Rights movement.
