In 2003, Michelle Branch seemed to flash-freeze in our collective pop cultural memory as the girl in hip-hugging boot-cut jeans and a black tank top.With two platinum albums and a crop of wildly catchy singles— "Everywhere," "All You Wanted," and "Are You Happy Now"—she was the voice of every love-struck high-schooler in the country, and still a teenager herself.Conjuring up everything from sophisticated blues groans to celtic influenced melodies from his 13-stringed, double-neck, Alabama cypress tree root lap-slide beast, Andrew’s musicianship, eclectic influences & humour will leave you feeling fine!It’s cheaper than counseling…Andy Salvanos is a leading exponent of the 10-string Chapman Stick and a favourite with fans of melodic solo guitar.Her siblings include an older half-brother named David and a younger sister named Nicole.Beginning to sing at the age of three, Branch enrolled in voice lessons at Northern Arizona University when she was eight, In December 1999, she posted two of her songs on the Rolling Stone website, which caught the attention of both pop rock band Hanson and former Rolling Stone writer and Los Angeles record producer Jeff Rabhan, eventually leading to two gigs opening for Hanson in 2000.His music has been described as “the sound of the world”, with a diverse range of influences coming together on a single instrument.
Jewel wrote and recorded her first album "Pieces of You" when she was just 21 years old.
The home Jewel grew up in did not have indoor plumbing or heat for many years.
The love of music and performing was passed down to Jewel who decided at a very young age that she wanted to be a singer.
Its title was inspired from a bracelet made by pop singer Jewel, given to Branch by musician Steve Poltz at a Lisa Loeb concert she attended.
Poltz told Branch that "when it breaks, you'll be famous." "Everywhere" was later followed by singles "All You Wanted" and "Goodbye to You".
