Melissa Etheridge has been a core Island Records artist since the release of her criticallyacclaimed
eponymous RIAA double-platinum debut album. For several years, Etheridge’s
popularity built around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water” (from her debut), “No
Souvenirs” (from Brave And Crazy) and “Ain't It Heavy” (from Never Enough), for which she
won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic
stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits “I’m the Only One” and
“Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought her second Best Female Rock
Grammy. The album went six times platinum and spent more than two and a half years on the
album chart. Her highest charting album, Your Little Secret (#6 on the Billboard Top 200),
included the hit single, “I Want to Come Over.” Her astounding success led Etheridge to receive
a Juno award for International Entertainer of the Year in 1990, the Songwriter of the Year honor
at the ASCAP Pop Awards in 1996, and the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2007.
2011 was an exciting year for Melissa. She made her Broadway debut as St. Jimmy in Green
Day’s rock opera, American Idiot, and received her Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In
2012, Melissa will perform sold out shows throughout Europe, Australia, and North America.
When Melissa is not on tour, she records her syndicated Melissa Etheridge Radio Show for daily
broadcast on stations throughout the US and Canada.
