Michele Voan (Pronounced as Vaughn) is a native Texan, raised in the small East Texas town of Shepherd, 60 miles North of Houston.  She began singing as a small child, and was performing on her parents country music show at the age of six.  Her musical influences range from  country and bluegrass to the pop songs of the 1930's, 40's and early 50's.

Michele performs each of these musical styles very well and with a uniqueness that is her own.  But when she had the opportunity to record in Nashville, her choice was a collection of some of her favorite classic pop songs, collaborating with the best of Nashville's musicians, who have a great musical history of their own.

The result is, as says the title, "Simply Michele" - not a typical pop standard album, but instead a refreshing and individual style  that is rarely heard today.  "Simply Michele" is receiving airplay and getting great response from program directors and DJ's in the adult standard radio field.  This includes being the featured artist and featured C for an hour on ABC radio Network Dave Rafferty's "Best of the new CD's" segment of his show.

Michele's latest recording is a traditional Christmas album "Christmas At Home With Michele."  The unique style and sound heard in "Simply Michele" is evident here, with the same great Nashville musicians, augmented by the addition of a string and brass section under the direction of Nashville's Steve Mauldin, on 7 of 12 cuts.

Michele now resides in Nashville, TN, and is enjoying getting established there as a performer of all her favorite musical styles.  Besides singing classic pop, she sometimes subs for the leader of the Carol Lee Singers, the vocal group on the Grand Ole Opry, backing the stars of the Opry on its legendary weekly broadcast on WSM Radio.
