    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

Track Name: Humanity
Some of us love beer
some of us love to fight
We’d all love sex (singing) if we just did it right
Some of us love dancing
Some of us play guitar
Some of us think love lives on a lonely distant star
Some of work hard and some don’t work at all
Some call them lucky and some would like to see them fall
O What is real o what is true
Can we please all agree on what to do

Cos we all need air and we all need light
We all need laughter to feel alright
We all want love and we all need sleep
We all have wisdom coming down real deep

Now some of us drive fast
Some don’t drive at all
Some think we’ll drive into a big fat wall
With all this bombing as the death tolls rise
Don’t forget about pollution look to the skeyes
Some of us are angry some of us don’t really care
Some of us are wondering if God is really even here

O What is real what is best
Let’s make things right
Let’s pass this test


Cos we all need light and we all need air
We’ve all shed at least one tiny little tear
All we need is light all we need is air
All we need is water to exist down here

So Courage up heart’s on Your sleeves
Cos it’s gonna take guts before the
Darkness leaves…
Track Name: Bathtub Rag
Bathtub Rag
By: Roch Gallo and Michelle Dumond

A little water and some soap, A little time to rest I hope
To wash the worries of the day, all away
Bathtub time is fun, to sit and watch the water run
And when you’re through, you feel brand new!

Ooooh, soaking here is twice as nice when you’re near
So, take off your clothes and oooh! Wet your toes
Wet your toes
Take off your clothes and wet your toes

In the bathtub you will find, you can rest and just unwind
Let the busy brain, float down the drain
Some bubbles and a duck, and with a little cosmic luck
You’ll have a lover in the tub, to scrub a dub!

Floating away, at the end of the day, is my way to pray
So, I take off my clothes and oooh! I wet my toes
I wet my toes!
I take off my clothes and I wet my toes!
Track Name: Find Your Love Again
At times I look into your lonely eyes
and see the dreams that passed you by

You feel that it's the end
but you'll find your love again

You never really wanted much at all
just someone who could ease your fall

You'll find it's not the end
but you'll find your love again

Day after day, it's around you
so open your eyes to something new
we do what we can do

And when you thought things were over and done
you'll find that they've just begun
so reach out and smile my friend
you'll find it never ends
and you'll find your love again!
Track Name: Remember September?
Remember September?
By: Michelle Dumond

Remember love, September love, it was lovelier than spring
Because all that spring can bring,
Never ever brought me you.

The sweetest things the springbird sings
Were written by the fall,
For in the cold and dark the songs were waiting.

Don’t we call it fall for a reason?
We fall in love to keep us warm when it’s freezing
As the winter snow blankets all
We know
That we fell
In the fall
In the thralls
Of love
Remember love, September love, as the courting of two hearts
The meeting of two parts
So tinglingly lingeringly lovely dear meyou.
Track Name: Sandra
Sandra, keeper of life mysteries
what do you hear on the breeze?

wordless unspoken things, secrets that only you know

Sandra, what do you whisper this time?
Do your lips move with reason or rhyme?

Sandra, what's in that upside down smile?
Stay, a while...with your your eyes full of spring and a heart full of sadness.
Track Name: Show Me
Show me that I'm creation that I'm just vibration that I'm nothing more
Show me that I'm creativity until i feel it coming out of every poor
soul finds an answer in his own day
every soul finds an answer in her own way

I've been running around looking out for, out for myself
but I don't ever find it, what is it?
I analyze and i fantasize, but I know this body is a big disguise (big as the skies) and it's going to take more than these human eyes to see, to see through to truth

Freedom to and freedom from
my freedom calls me like a lonely drum
but like a 12 year old potted houseplant, I cling to the dirt
and I carry hurt

I analyze and i fantasize, but I know this body is a big disguise (big as the skies) and it's going to take more than these human eyes to see, to see through to truth
Track Name: Au Revoir
One of us is sleeping and one of us is dead
Which one has it better, and which is which all said

They mystery's embraced you, her kisses are they sweet?
A new face you'll be wearing, when next we chance to meet....to meet

Au Revoir mon amour, au revoir, au revoir

Is it water we become, the sand beneath these feet
Is Hercules inside me, is it me i'm trying to meet...

Au Revoir mon amour, au revoir, au revoir

Love's every note in the scale
Love's every name is a veil

Au Revoir mon amour, au revoir, au revoir
Track Name: Skeye
SKEYE- By Roch Gallo
At the other end of the skeye, I’ll be there
When there’s nothing left to try, i’ll be there
When all the dreams of yesterday slowly start to fade away and the fire starts to burn, every lesson that you’ve learned, I’ll be there, you know I’ll be there

At the other end of the skeye things will change
When you start to ask yourself why, things will change
All the sadness that you had all the people good and bad, all the places in your life, all the happiness and strife, all will go, but you know, i’ll be there.

INSTRUMENTAL ROUND

At the other end of the skeye, I’ll be there
When there’s nothing left to try, I’ll be there
When you’ve said your last goodbye and spirit starts to rise to another time and place, with a smile upon my face, I’ll be there, you know, I’ll be there.
Track Name: Sick on Christmas
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.
