Michelle is often compared to Cassandra Wilson, Nina Simone and Betty Carter in style and tone. Her performance resume includes concert and festival performances at The Lincoln Center-Women in Jazz Festival, The Silver Spring Jazz Festival, Goshen Jazz Festival and The Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival.

She studied music and vocal performance at the University of Maryland, Stanford Jazz and Amsterdam Conservatory in Holland. She has also studied with Betty Carter, Rhiannon, Jay Clayton, Dena DeRose and Mark Murphy. She has opened in concert for Wynton Marsalis, Rene Marie, Terrell Stafford, Chris Botti, George Benson and Mark Murphy.

Her arrangements of straight-ahead standards and contemporary pop tunes blend genres effortlessly and with a fresh level of originality that is solidifying her own distinctive sound. Dave Nathan at AllAboutJazz.com says, Walker demonstrates an extraordinary degree of musicality. According to Mike Joyce of the Washington Post, the hypnotic, sexy, deep tone of Michelle's voice has a soul-comforting allure.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
