Michelle Branch (born July 2, 1983) is a musician, specializing in guitar. She was born in Flagstaff, Arizona. She first hit the airwaves with the song "Everywhere" in 2001. She gained note and acclaim along with such other stars as Avril Lavigne and Vanessa Carlton for music performed by teenage girls that was not bubblegummy, manufactured, or aimed at sexy image rather than musical integrity. She is also acclaimed for writing or corwriting all of her songs on her albums. In 2002, she was the vocalist for Carlos Santana's "The Game of Love" (not to be confused with the Mindbenders song of the same name) and later went on to win a grammy for best pop collaboration. Critics of contemporary pop held that she combines thought-out lyrics and interesting guitar chords to make an enjoyable singer without all the trashy clothes. However, recently with steamy photoshoots with such magazines as Maxim and Blender, her clean cut, sex free image has been put into question. Perhaps it is inevitable for musicians, even the most promising, to take the path that such musicians as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera have taken.
