Michelle Walker


Jazz vocalist Michelle Walker—a charismatic singer armed with a provocative, whiskey-soaked tone—returns to Smoke in support of her acclaimed recent recording Love Misery. brings  who uses an artful blend of blues, bebop, swing and soul with playful rhythmic expressiveness. Walker’s vocal style is most often compared to Cassandra Wilson, Nina Simone and Betty Carter but out of these influences she has developed her a distinctive sound and voice that is all her own. Dave Nathan of says, “Walker demonstrates an extraordinary degree of musicality…” and Mike Joyce of the Washington Post says, “[Walker]…has a soul-comforting allure.”
