“Odette Michell possesses one of the most remarkable voices you’ll hear anywhere, and it’s matched by a rare songwriting talent. With sympathetic violin-and-percussion accompaniment, her music draws fans from both sides of the folk/country divide while retaining an individual charm that’s unique to her.” (Explorer Magazine)
“Odette’s gorgeous voice can conjure up a summer feeling even in the depths of winter, and her distinctive brand of modern folk music will leave catchy tunes in your brain for days. Her fresh take on this genre can be compared to the Indigo Girls and Sandy Denny.” (RealCity Magazine)
Odette has also lent backing vocals to many recorded projects & albums, as well having her track Drive featured on a ‘Best of British‘ exclusive compilation CD.
