Changing the World One Song at a Time
“[Aryn] Michelle embraced both the creative and philosophical challenges of the contest.”
Aryn Michelle is a do-it-yourself indie pop songstress who has always refused to wait around for her next big break; she makes it happen. As a teenager Aryn taught herself piano and guitar, and soon after began writing her own music. While attending Southwestern University, Aryn began releasing homemade demos of her original music and began performing around Austin, TX. With a hunger to become a better songwriter and performer, she attended Berklee College of Music in Boston for a few years and also began to learn how to engineer and produce her own demos and crowdfund her recording projects.
Aryn released her debut album, Lockless Heart, in 2009 as she was finishing her work at Berklee. While at Berklee she was honored with the Scott Benson Award for songwriting, and awarded the grand prize in the 2009 Berklee Substance Abuse Prevention Campaign for her song “Crave.” Since leaving Berklee, Aryn was selected as a regional finalist for the 2009 Mountain Stage NewSong Festival, was invited to be one of eight artists to represent the TUNE campaign, was named the Texas CSA’s 2010 Songwriter of the Year, was the 2010 KLTY’s Chick-fil-a Celebrate Freedom jingle writing contest grand prize winner, and was a top ten finalist in the 2011 Folger’s National Jingle Writing Contest.
In March 2010 Aryn Michelle completed raising $50,000 through the crowd-funding website SellaBand.com to fund her next album.
The album, The Last One Standing, was produced by Riley Friesen of Coda Record House and will be released October 4th 2011. Aryn and her new dynamite band will be touring the album after its release.
