She would listen to his music and dream of someday playing as he did. It was during this time that she began composing and recording her own songs. In the winter of 2000, Michele released her first album, Beginnings, which included 18 of her favorite compositions she had written over the years. The response she received from friends and family was an overwhelming eye-opener for Michele. She was so moved by the positive feedback and support she received that she was inspired to work on her second album, Elysium.
The release of her second album was a critical turning point in Michele's musical career and she has since produced a total of ten albums (Beginnings, Elysium, The Journey, A Change of Color, The Beginning of Forever, After The Storm, Reflections 2000-2005 ~ The Best of Michele McLaughlin, Christmas ~ Plain & Simple, Dedication and A Celtic Dream). Michele performs regularly and has shared the stage with some of her favorite pianists; David Nevue, Joe Bongiorno, Gary Girouard, Joseph Akins, Jennifer Thomas and Kurt Bestor. Michele loves to perform with fellow musicians because she feels it brings so much more to the experience of the audience and the performers. Michele's musical influences include George Winston, Jim Brickman, Paul Cardall and David Nevue. Read more on Last.fm.
