Michelle Malone Band
The Michelle Malone Band will be playing bluesy songs from my catalog - most feature her renowned slide playing- as well as some of Michelle's favorite blues classics!
Compared to most musical artists in the Americana genre, Michelle Malone seems like a pair of distressed blue jeans amidst a sea of pantsuits. Unlike the surplus of self-professed rootsy rebels, one listen to this woman from Georgia and you know you’re hearing the real thing. A singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer whose music is informed by blues, roadhouse rock & roll and Georgia soul, Michelle Malone's performances can go from contemplative coffeehouse quiet to rowdy and "Deluxe reverb on 10" at the turn of a dime. Her passionate, uncompromising style has won her loyal following world wide. She's a wild-haired Rock Goddess, political singer/songwriter, passionate raw performer with early roots in the church choir – no single characterization tells the whole story. Over the course of Malone’s career, she’s performed with artists from Gregg Allman to Ellen Degeneres, John Mayer to the Atlanta Symphony, Indigo Girls to Shawn Mullins, released more than a dozen records and went indie when it still took guts. Equal parts badass guitar slinger and sweet songstress, Michelle Malone artfully balances her penchant for ripping it through the roof with masterful lyrical introspection and vocals that range from sublime to raucous.
Michelle's new record, Slings and Arrows is upbeat, defiant, and jubilant, flush with the raw energy, emotion, and slide guitar that’s always been a part of her signature sound all while nudging her deeper into some personal new territory. These songs speak to desire and disappointment, optimism and awareness, all with a driving and fiery conviction. It was recorded live in the studio to capture Malone at her best. Michelle describes Slings And Arrows as a “Georgia record,” due to the fact that the musicians, studios, and even those responsible for the visual art are all Georgians. ”I take a lot of pride in Georgia and the importance that Georgia music has played not only in my music but also in American music in general,” she says. “Georgians such as Little Richard, James Brown, Ray Charles all laid the ground work. Without them, we would never have had Elvis, the Beatles, the Stones - there would be no rock and roll. I made a conscious effort to capture some of these Georgia roots on this record.”
Slings and Arrows street release date is March 2nd. Preorder it now at michellemalone.com to get it in February.

Georgia grown singer songwriter, Sarah Peacock, swings the pendulum across the spectrum of what's considered to be today's country music; bridging gaps between modern country, alternative country, folk, americana, and even classic rock. You'll find a truthful rawness in her music and real life themes of faith, overcoming struggle, and un-acquitted love that will leave you oddly feeling closer to home. And, most certainly you're sure to find a piece of your own story threading throughout the fabric of her songs.
Peacock is a country-rock powerhouse, and she's got one of the most dynamic voices in the business. Her soft, sultry ballad, "Hurricane" won best song in the 2014 American Songwriting Awards, and her song, "Beautiful" was a winner in the 2014 International Unsigned Only Competition. In 2013, Peacock was named Listening Room Network's Artist of the Year. Sarah was nominated for Best Female Artist in the 2015 International Acoustic Music Awards for her song, "Are We There Yet.” Her song, “The Cool Kids” was a nominee for best song in the 2015 American Songwriting Awards. Peacock has released 6 albums and has toured over 200 dates a year since 2005.
