A revealing deep-dive with Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Michelle Branch about her life in music — from her childhood obsession with the Beatles and Frankie Valli to early songwriting explorations inspired by artists like the Gin Blossoms and Lisa Loeb, through her tenacious teenage pursuit of a record deal, the making of her multiplatinum 2001 album The Spirit Room when she was only 16, the battles she fought for creative control, and how she approaches her music today. She’s currently finishing a new album (collaborating with her husband, Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney), and says she’s loving the freedom she’s found in trusting her own instincts. She also talks about her hope to release The Spirit Room on vinyl, for the first time ever, for it’s 20th anniversary, next year.
