Her renditions of contemporary easy listing Irish music are impossible
to resist with the gentle charm of her immediately identifiable
pure tone. Like many of Ireland's great female vocalists of recent
times including, Mary Black, Dolores Keane, Maura O'Connell, etc.

legendary Frankie Gavin of De Dannan. Michelle is currently the
lead vocalist with Frankie's new group 'Hibernian Rhapsody' who
recently performed with The Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in
"A voice that lingers in the mind's ear,
when the enchanted listening is done."
'If This Be Love' (TARACD4019) is Michelle's
debut album and features a beautiful selection of songs by some
of Ireland's leading songwriters including, Jimmy McCarthy, Mick
Hanly, John Spillane as well as some original music by co-producer
and mentor Frankie Gavin. Included in the album's thirteen tracks,
some selected by the composers especially for Michelle, are such
classics as 'Wonder Child', 'Ride On', 'Black is The Colour' and
