Melissa Etheridge Biography
Singer-songwriter and gay rights activist Melissa Etheridge achieved both Oscar and Grammy-winning success with an All American pop-rock sound that saw her hailed as the female Bruce Springsteen. Born in Kansas in 1961, Etheridge attended the Berklee College of Music for a year before dropping out to pursue her music career, and was first discovered by manager Bill Leopold while touring the Boston club circuit. Several record companies then bought Melissa Etheridge tickets for her five-night-a-week residency at Long Beach’s Executive Suite, sparking a bidding war which resulted in a deal with Island Records. In 1988, she released her self-titled debut and Melissa Etheridge tickets for a national tour, and picked up the first of her 15 Grammy nominations for single “Bring Me The Water.” Following two further US Top 30 LPs with 1989’s Brave and Crazy and 1992’s Never Enough, Etheridge publicly came out at the 1993 Triangle Ball held to celebrate Bill Clinton’s inauguration. Addressing her sexuality, 1993’s mainstream breakthrough Yes I Am spent nearly three years on the Billboard 200 and spawned her only Top 10 single, “I’m The Only One.” In the same year, she protested against Colorado’s passage of Amendment 2 by refusing to sell Melissa Etheridge tickets for shows in the state. In 1995, she scored her highest-charting album with Your Little Secret, and after appearing as herself on Ellen, followed it up in 1999 with Breakdown and the release of Melissa Etheridge tickets for an accompanying tour. Further cementing her reputation as one of America’s most confessional artists, 2001 concept album Skin focused on her break-up with long-term girlfriend Julie Cypher, while in 2002, she published her autobiography, The Truth Is: My Life In Love and Music. Following the release of 2004’s Lucky, Etheridge overcame a battle with breast cancer before returning to the stage for a powerful performance of Janis Joplin’s “Piece of My Heart” at the 2005 Grammy Awards. The demand for Melissa Etheridge tickets grew a year later when she won the Best Original Song Oscar for her contribution to An Inconvenient Truth. In 2007, she released The Awakening and Melissa Etheridge tickets for a tour of the same name, and performed at both Live Earth and the Nobel Peace Prize Concert. Following a brief stint as St. Jimmy in Green Day musical American Idiot, she added to her tally of hit albums with Fearless Love and 4th Street Feeling, before performing in front of thousands of fans with Melissa Etheridge tickets at her first ever Pride concert. In 2014, she released her 13th studio effort, This Is M.E., and Melissa Etheridge tickets for a North American tour.
