Born and raised in Menifee, California, Michelles desire to perform began by the time she took her first steps. Michelle entered and won, many of the larger signing competitions held in surrounding cities near her home which led to being the opener for Carolyn Dawn Johnson.
In late 2003, Michelle recorded her 4 song demo Stronger than Goodbye at Broken Bow Records in Nashville, TN. Following this recording came several offers from the Nashville music community, from major record labels to small independent producers. Michelle stayed busy fielding requests and weighing each opportunity seriously. She loves live performance and does very well maintaining an active schedule of events.
In May, 2006 Michelle opened for Carrie Underwood at the Key Club, Morongo. This shows success led to another offer to open for the legendary David Allan Coe just 6 months later. This show was a bit more challenging as the Michelle Crowley Band had a much tougher crowd to impress uponand that they did and succeeded in gaining an even larger fan base.
Michelles true passion in her career is a organization she co-founded that assists in raising money for families of fallen firefighters. The first annual benefit concert was held on December 3, 2006 benefiting the firefighters lost in the Esperanza, California fire of October, 2006. This concert raised over $14,000 with only 3 weeks of planning, this was a major achievement .
Numerous country music stars such as Big & Rich, Brooks and Dunn, Wynonna and Charlie Daniels (just to name a few), supported and contributed to this event which will be held annually. 30% of her net sales from her albume to the Wildland Firefighters Foundation and works closely with the founder, Burke Minor who continually offers his encouragement and assistance.
Michelle will be opening for Josh Gracin in Lake Elsinore, CA on June 20th and just following has several shows lined up for the K-Frog Summer Concert Series.

Yes. I sing for anyone who asks me to (hehe). I have performed concert openers, talent contest, various music shows, anything I'm hired or booked for. I love performing, my biggest delight is seeing the people enjoy and having fun to my music. So with as much passion as I have for singing, any chance given to perform, I'm soo there.
First off, its my father, a loved blues singer in his day. Then I must say, haha, there are a few... Barbra Streisand, Reba, Patsy, and Loretta Lynn, but as far as voice in country, I must say, Martina Mcbride. But we musnt forget the powerful little lady, "Brenda Lee..."
Michelle is currently in the process of working with the talented songwriter/producer Tom Paden, which means more outstanding songs to come.
Already in demand, Michelle looks forward to expanding her music to the ears of country fans nationwide. Look for upcoming event schedules soon to come.
