Melissa Etheridge is one of rock music’s great female icons. Her critically acclaimed eponymous debut album was certified double platinum. Etheridge’s popularity built around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs” and “Ain’t It Heavy” for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought her a second Grammy. The six times platinum album spent more than two and a half years on the album chart.

Etheridge is also an Oscar winner for Best Original Song in 2007. In 2011 Melissa made her Broadway debut as St. Jimmy in Green Day’s rock opera, American Idiot, where she replaced Billie Joe Armstrong for one week, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

Etheridge is scheduled to release The Medicine Show on April 12 via Concord Records. The new album, produced by John Shanks (Keith Urban, Bon Jovi, Kelly Clarkson), follows 2016’s MEmphis Rock and Soul and 2014’s critically lauded This Is M.E.

Etheridge’s 2019 U.S. tour in support of the new album starts March 29 in Florida.
