Melissa Etheridge London Concert Review by Music News

Source: Music News

Halfway through this rare visit to London by Melissa Etheridge, the singer confesses to have once been intimidated by British audiences, apparently because of the accent. Shortly after she tries her own attempt at a British accent, which ends up being like one of those awful mockney-style voices used by less-impressive American actors in period dramas. Etheridge can be forgiven for this slight discrepancy, as she is not here to tell jokes, she is here to perform songs from her more than 20 year career. In fact she's performing as a one-woman band, carrying out this short tour across Europe on her own.

Melissa Etheridge London Concert Review by Classic Rock

Source: Classic Rock

by Malcolm Dome

Who needs a band? Not this one-woman show

Melissa Etheridge is unequivocal. “Every sound you'll hear tonight is produced by me!'. But she still cleverly uses technology to augment this solo performance. Mostly, it is percussive, as she claps a drum or a tambourine, then has these beats put on a rhythmic loop, while songs develops through her emotive vocals and astonishing guitar work. Cheating? No way. All this ensures is that the two hour-plus show has real depth and power.

Melissa Etheridge article on Billboard for Who Do You Think You Are

Source: Billboard

Etheridge says she agreed to appear on the show's season finale (airing Sunday, April 26th at 10 p.m. ET) partly because her wife Linda Wallem is close friends with one of the executive producers, and also because she felt there were some holes in her own family knowledge. "I knew stories from my mother's family," says the Kansas native, "but with my father I didn't know anything past his parents, so it was a delight to all of a sudden open a door to all these stories and be like, 'Oh, that's where my father came from?'"

In this Sunday's finale episode Who Do You Think You Are? singer Melissa Etheridge, 53, uncovers stories of her ancestors and reflects on her own personal legacy. Check out Melissa's exclusive Q&A with 'Closer Weekly' about her experience on the hit TLC show below.

Closer: I got the link of your episode and it was so fascinating. I can’t even imagine, it seemed that your enthusiasm and excitement was so genuine.

Melissa: I had no idea what to expect. I knew a lot about my mother’s family but my father kept it really quiet. I’m glad they took my father’s side of the family that I knew nothing about. All of a sudden it’s like someone pulls back a back a curtain and you see into this rich pat and I think wait a minute, no I can’t define myself like that anymore look at this.

Melissa Etheridge's French Canadian British American Spanish Ancestor

Source: Huffington Post


Photo courtesy of TLC for The Huffington Post

Melissa Etheridge brings TLC's Who Do You Think You Are? season to a close (Sunday, April 26th, 10/9c) when she goes on a journey to uncover her father's maternal roots. She swiftly discovers French Canadian ancestors who were embroiled in a bitter lawsuit against a man who got their teenage daughter pregnant and refused to marry her, but there's more to the story than she first thinks.

Then she follows the trail of her 5th great-grandfather to colonial America, where he prospered in the fur trade at a time and in an environment so turbulent that he wound up evolving from a French subject to a British subject to an American citizen and finally to a Spanish subject. Phew!
