Colorado singer/songwriter Michelle Roderick brings a wealth of imagery to her award winning original music. She has been writing and performing her songs for over 25 years. Michelle grew up in Preston, Minnesota where she learned to play the trumpet in a small town high school band and had her first guitar lesson from her elementary school music teacher. Her college years in Lubbock, TX and Iowa City, IA showed her how to scoot the boot and finger pick as she develop an interest in country music. Later she moved to Fort Collins in the early 1990's and began playing her original music in the talented Northern Colorado music scene. Her collection of songs blends a mix of country, blues and sultry rock into familiar life stories. Michelle has performed solo and with some of the area's finest musicians which brings a seasoned sound to Michelle's distinctively strong vocals and song writing.
My song "This Lonely Day" was recently recognized as a semi-finalist in the USA Songwriting Contest for 2021. Over 6500 entries were received and around 20% were selected as semi-finalists in the different categories. Also in September 2021 "This Lonely Day" was a top-song of the Colorado Music Business Organization's annual songwriting contest. In addition, SongDoor recommended attempting to license "This Lonely Day" in a TV/Movie placement.
