Michele D’Amour is a born storyteller and award-winning songwriter who penned her first song at the age of 6 and became a published poet in her early 20s. Her lyrics treat difficult topics with a sense of soulful whimsy and wry humor. Michele sang in her church choir, wrote songs and sang lead for some local bands before honing her craft at several of the blues jams in the Seattle area. Upon the advice of friends, she formed Michele D’Amour and the Love Dealers in 2011. The band features Patrick McDanel on bass, guitarist Mike Kohary, drummer Dave Delzotto, Brian Olendorf on keys and saxman Noel Barnes. They have been recognized with multiple awards and nominations from the Washington Blues Society and were named by LA Music Critic as 2019’s best blues band.
