“Just One Voice”
Michelle Willis has one of those voices that’s so stirring, it makes you feel things you didn’t know you felt. Actually, let’s take that one step further: her voice makes you feel things you didn’t even know you could feel in the first place. Yes, she’s that good. The Canadian singer/songwriter and keyboardist decided to hit the 212 back in 2016, which really just means she moved to New York from Toronto and once she was there, it didn’t take long for her to make her mark. She secured a monthly residency at the Rockwood Music Hall and just two months later she was touring in two bands led by David Crosby and one by Becca Stevens. Shortly after that, the ball that got rolling started rolling faster: She opened for Snarky Puppy and toured and recorded with the Zac Brown Band, Iggy Pop and Michael McDonald. Her sophomore album Just One Voice, which is the follow up to her 2016 debut See Us Through, is one of our favorite albums of the year. Soulfully precise and filled with smooth grooves, lustrous melodies and luxurious pop hooks, Just One Voice is a straight up knockout.
