Music and singing has always been an important part of Michelle’s life. As a young girl, she learnt piano and violin and in her teens she played the drums. Joining her mother’s Celtic band in the late 90s planted the seed of a love of performing and travelling. Michelle has performed at festivals and events in Australia, UK, Ireland & USA. When not creating and performing her own music, she can often be found supporting local, interstate and international bands and artists as a backing vocalist, percussionist and musician. With a wealth of experience and professional etiquette gained along the journey, Michelle’s formal qualifications include a Diploma of Music and a Diploma of Sound Therapy.

Michelle’s album ‘Rise and Shine’ is a collection of mantras for yoga practice. She also performs original music with her husband James Byrne in their duo Imijri.
