Michelle began playing piano and singing at a young age. Her natural ear for pitch combined with her intense love of music has produced the powerful front of AFT/BRAVE. Michelle, although never formally trained, only began to seriously study voice and piano in May of 1997 by teaching herself.
She has recorded vocals and keyboards with other bands to include While Heaven Wept (current band member 1998 – present), Fell on Within, Circle of Nero, Power of Omens, David Gallegos, Division, and Project Failing Flesh.
Her influences include Tori Amos, Lisa Gerrard, Bjork, Depeche Mode, Fates Warning, Live, Queensryche, Anathema and a secret love for heavy grooves like Pantera, Slayer and System of a Down.
