It is raw and edgy AND has a few beauties that'll rip yer heart out. Oh - and plenty of slide guitar! ENJOY! Here's what the critics are saying: 'Sugarfoot is as raw, magnificent, dirty and low down as anything you'll ever wanna hear in blues music - our blues-breaker CD for the week' - Dan 'Elwood' Akroyd, House of Blues Radio Hour 'Adventurous, slithery and ebullient slide - sings and plays with cool confidence throughout ala Bonnie Raitt and Shelby Lynn' - Blues Revue 'Malone's "Sugarfoot will take you down to the crossroads and send you back dazed, disheveled and half-naked."-Harp 'Sugarfoot is a Top 10 blues release of 2006 - Malone's rich vocals blew me away. Bonnie Raitt you better start sweating now. Great range, too. She's bursting with attitude and stomping like a prettier Janis Joplin - straight up slide guitar rock that'll 'drop you to your knees' It's pure ear candy with a shot of Bourbon.' - The Blues Critic 'Dirty south, bluesy rock. Sweet slide guitar. You'll feel the earth move under your bare feet - a Top 50 release of 2006' - Pop Matters 'Malone's gritty, emotive vocals and sinewy arrangements that most emphatically define her. She wails like the devil's on her tail, but she isn't waiting for Satan to catch up before she catches fire' - Amplifier Magazine "Sugarfoot mixes grit, sass, soul and some sweet balladry into such a kick-butt collection, you'd think she was the daughter of George Thorogood and Susan Tedeschi." -Star Tribune (Minneapolis) "Generally stripped-back, but featuring terrific support, Michelle Malone is as well-rounded as she is supremely talented." -Hittin' the Note 'Contemporary Southern rock doesn't get any smarter or dirtier than this. Poetic lyric command, relentless energy, and nasty slide guitar make Sugarfoot riveting from the get-go.' - Amazon.com Some quotes on some previous work: ' I love Michelle's songs and her voice- it was great to record and tour with her.' -John Mayer 'an incredibly gifted vocalist.' - K.D. Lang 'She's practically a member of the band' -Indigo Girls 'Her lyrics ripple with Dylanish imagery and a fierce will to survive.' - Mademoiselle Magazine 'The kind of singer and songwriter who can jolt things into overdrive.' - New York Times 'A troubadour with grit and enough accessibility to warrant widespread acceptance.' - Billboard Magazine 'A songsmith on par with Paul Westerberg, Malone performs power pop without parallel.' - Washington Times 'Malone has steadily shaped music that is elegantly honest and genuine for over 10 years.' - Curve Magazine 'One of the few young female guitarists finding a niche outside 'alternative' music.' - Guitar Magazine 'An exceptional voice capable of smoking langour and howling catharsis.' - Washington Post 'Another testament to Malone's Gritty, lean, well written rock. She has the soul of a folk singer, the heart of a bluesman, and the guts of a rock and roll star all wrapped up in one fiery bad ass.' - The Nashville Rage 'The rough-and-tumble Malone embraces her inner Keith Richards while churning up those Southern roots with the vigor of Lucinda Williams. 4/5.' --Playboy '...2003's hands-down best Americana release from a female singer-songwriter.'--HARP 'Raucous and jubilant...somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Shelby Lynne comes Michelle Malone alternating between soulful ballads and rowdy, riffy blasters.'--Rolling Stone.com 'Michelle is fiery and passionate, whether it's rocking with abandon or ripping your heart.' (Billboard Mag) 'Michelle Malone ROCKS! Easily one of the greatest voices in the business, an untouchable songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist, Michelle is always giving 110 percent.' (GOGIRLS.COM) 'I have not been this impressed since I first heard Lucinda Williams...It's intoxicating to listen to Michelle achieve greatness....' - Atlanta Magazine In keeping with her rough and tumble attitude, Malone averages over 200 days a year on the road, and has shared stages and tours with such blues legends as Albert King, Charlie Musselwhite, Johnny Winter, Little Feat, ZZ Top, Marsha Ball and Chris Whitley, as well as folk icons Indigo Girls, Shawn Colvin, Jackson Browne and John Mayer. Malone's live show is not to be missed - she can make the biggest venues seem as cozy as a camp fire, and an intimate venue feel like the center of the universe.
