Play Michelle Malone - Day 2
Michelle Malone delivers the fierce spirit that gets you through the darkest stretches of night, pulling you up out of bed into dawn\'s first pulsing glow. Seated at a vivid green kitchen table, black coffee steaming in your mug, Malone plays for you on a beat up acoustic guitar, her voice ringing clear and rich over the mellowed strings. You know you?ve come home and you know this time, you never want to leave.
The songs on Malone\'s 11th studio album, Day 2, were written at her own green kitchen table, coffee mug in hand, every morning for nearly a year. She even wrote them on an old Alvarez acoustic guitar that never gets played out on gigs, that never even leaves the house. The intimacy of this writing ritual provided the setting for Malone to venture into a songwriter?s most vulnerable territory, the shadowy recesses of envy, regrets, and straight up admissions of failure. Now here?s Malone?s hat trick, in realizing its too damn bad I can\'t be anyone but myself,? she redeems every false move, every false start, every horrible, no good very bad day. Even better, she makes it sound like the best wild night out you?ve ever had and then pushes it further, breaking right on through into Day 2.
