Michelle Brayson was born in Portland, OR and started playing piano and singing at age 7 and hasn’t really stopped ever since.
She spent the first half of her life focused on musical theater and choir. In high school she found rock and roll and her deep passion for music really started then. She started playing in local cover bands through and outside of School of Rock in all kind of genres (everything from funk to heavy metal) as well as forming her own original music projects. During this time she also placed third in Portland Teen Idol singing competition.
Michelle then moved up north to Seattle to get her A.M. degree in Classical Voice. She has continued to play in various bands around town but has spent most of her 10 years up north focused on teaching music and she has started her own music school: Alchemy Music School.
Michelle has performed with artists such as Frank Black (of the Pixies), Kelly LeMieux (of Goldfinger) and Page Hamilton (of Helmet). She’s also performed at various events such as Folklife, Bumbershoot, the Nike Olympic Trials and Fall into Darkness Metal Festival.
