Studio and Session Work

Michelle is an experienced session musician with a talent for sight-reading and on the spot creativity.

To her credit are three Blackthorn albums and her single "Open Skies", as well as a huge number of other people’s projects for television, video, and albums.

Some of these include:

Piccolo for local children’s compilation album, song title “Growing in Life’s Garden” 
Flute on a number of documentary productions for Kelowna Museum for example, "Okanagan Irrigation"
Flute for a number of tracks including the main theme, for the locally produced and filmed television production “Galley Chefs”
Flute for tracks for major motion-picture film sourced to local composer for Hollywood productions
Flute for local song-writer Karen Helm, “I Can Lend You an Angel”

Fife for film soundtrack for “McDull Kindergarten”, a Hong-Kong based animated production full-length film, released at the Vancouver International Film Festival in 2010

Fife, whistle, flute and piccolo for film soundtrack for “The Sunflower Hour”, a mockumentary film produced locally, recorded 2011

Session Musicians Directory of BC

In 1993 and 1994, Michelle and colleague David Malécot collaborated to produce and publish the “Session Musician’s Directory of B.C.”.  For this innovative project, Michelle and David contacted all the local studio/session musicians and listed them in their publication.  Then they distributed to the local studios, music stores, Music West and other hiring venues copies of the printed books.  Their goal was to connect more effectively the local talent with the people trying to find them.  The mission?  “Our goal is to employ musicians”.

David also produced several singles of Michelle’s compositions in the studio.  Sadly David passed away at a young age, and the publication era came to an end.
