    Michelle Dumond (Meshe) is a free-spirited gypsy musician with the soul of a jazz singer and the playfulness of a burlesque performer. Bob Dylan would love her. Rufus Wainwright would drag her onstage with him. Leonard Cohen and Shakira would team up to adopt her. She has the musical skills to establish credibility with a more artsy crowd and the earthiness and humor to make her more accessible to people like me who just love music.

    She can convey all kinds of moods with that husky, alluring, commanding voice. She can sing the fun “Bathtub Rag” about soaking in the tub and suddenly fog up the bathroom mirror by crooning invitingly, “So take off your clothes and wet your toes.” She can handle a serious issue with a whimsical approach (the opener “Humanity”).

    She can also dim the lights, as she does in the middle of this CD, and turn into a classically-inspired dark gothic composer. “Sandra” and “Au Revoir” are orchestral tapestries of cello, piano, violin, and sweeping melodic drama. I could almost touch the sound – it’s burgundy velvet. After it flowed over me and left me very still, Dumond wisely ended on an up note with “Sick on Christmas,” a wry yet jingling tune. She can do anything.

    She can sing anything, play anything, and seduce anyone.

    Go ahead and give in." - Review by Jennifer Layton, Indie-music.com

lyrics

I'm sick, on Christmas- I'm miserable and sad
but I'm counting my blessing and wearing my best things
and laughing almost all the time

Because Aunt Dorothy thinks it's psychosomatic
my sisters say to eat some garlic
everyone has, a piece of advice for me, you see...

I'm sick, on Christmas, I'm miserable and mad
while I'm drinking ginger tea, and thinking me me me
i'm coughing all the time

while mom is cooking up a wonder
the table's set with treats to plunder
but nobody wants to have a seat next to me you see

I'm sick on Christmas, but i'm trying to be glad
so while I'm under the tree, where the presents happen to be
I'm blowing my nose in time, because

it's Christmas, oh oh oh, Christmas time,
and i'm with you-ooh, ooh, oooh.
i'm with you, achew. bless you.
