Why see Melissa Etheridge?
A force to be reckoned with
Since her 1988 debut 'Bring Me Some Water', Melissa Etheridge has been an iconic voice in alternative rock and roll. When in 1993, her second record 'Yes I am' went double platinum, that success was cemented. As a performer she has won 2 Grammy Awards and an Academy Award for best original song, but also as a social and gay rights activist, she has left a lasting impression on American popular culture.
Etheridge has 14 studio albums under her belt and each one features the timeless sense of yearning for the human connection that the songstress is so adept at articulating in her driving anthems and softer, acoustic ballads. She's a powerhouse performer when it comes to her live shows, pouring every ounce of emotion and heart that she's got into every performance - her vocal voracity often draws comparisons to the late, great Janis Joplin.
