Michelle Chamuel aka The Reverb Junkie: Deeds + Castles + You Don't Know (with Christopher Norman)

Although Michelle Chamuel did not win first place on The Voice singing competition last night, her appearance on national television these past few months is absolutely priceless in terms of exposure to a wide audience.

The singer-songwriter-musician-producer was a member of Ann Arbor band Ella Riot from 2007 to 2011 after which she begun to record and release material under the moniker The Reverb Junkie.  She has also collaborated with Christopher Norman: last summer they released the excellent EP 'All the Pretty People' on BandCamp.

As The Reverb Junkie, Chamuel is clearly influenced and inspired by Robyn, Katy Perry, and Imogen Heap, yet nevertheless manages to find her own unique voice and sound, as evidenced on the stellar tracks posted below.
