On a Mission: Americana songstress Michael-Ann opens for Wilson Phillips at the Rose

There are singers, and there are passion singers: emotive vocalists with full-bodied tones who couldn’t sound noncommittal if they tried. Count Michael-Ann Azoulai among the latter.

Azoulai, who professionally goes by Michael-Ann, has a history of following her passions. After college, while selling advertising in Washington, DC, she jumped at an Israeli friend’s invitation to visit. Her adventure in Israel (where she met her now-ex-husband, also a musician) lasted a year.

Reviews for Michael-Ann

Robert Oermann, Music Row
“This L.A. singer-songwriter emotes beautifully on the title tune of her CD.

ABOUT MICHAEL-ANN

Michael-Ann started her musical journey at an early age. She learned to play guitar through her friend’s musical family in the Ozarks of Missouri. It was there she learned to play with strings 1/2″ off the fret… a painful but rewarding experience. She would go every weekend and savor the flavor of down-home hospitality and song. Each weekend included a musical performance with various members of the extended family. She then decided she wanted to dip her toes in the waters of Nashville. Several record labels were interested in her music, but she chose to travel overseas first, to broaden her life experience.

Now living in Los Angeles, Michael Ann has opened for Paula Nelson in Kansas City, Blake Shelton, and most recently for John Hiatt, Wanda Jackson, Joan Osborne, Don McLean, Mark Chesnutt, Kenny Rogers, Jeff Bridges, Eddie Money, Judy Collins and Richie Furay. She has toured and performed at various clubs including The Coach House, The Saban Theater, Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center, The Canyon Club, The Hotel Cafe, The Viper Room, Ranch Party, Room 5, Genghis Cohen, and Three of Clubs. Her release Heavy Load has received airplay on over 75 radio stations nationally and internationally.

Stay tuned for more exciting developments in the works!
