I hope that none of you are going to be disappointed with me for posting mixed women here on A-S. Being mixed myself, I do feel quite an attraction to others of mixed Asian descent.
I always thought there was more to Michelle Branch’s brunette beauty. Until recently I presumed she was just a wonderful mix of white and European. It turns out both her maternal grandparents are half Indonesian, yay for us!
This Cancer (July 2, 1983) was named after the Beatlesï¿½ ï¿½Michelleï¿½ and has been an active singer/ songwriter since she was young. At the tender age of 8, Michelle was taking voice lessons and after receiving her first guitar from her uncle when she was 14, emerged from her room days later having composed her first songï¿½ dedicated much?
Below is one of my favorite songs by Michelle ï¿½Breatheï¿½ from her ï¿½Hotel Paperï¿½ album
After playing in clubs for a few years Branch independently released her first album ï¿½Broken Braceletï¿½ in 2000 and while opening for Hanson (NOT Asian; NOT Sirens, although the keyboard player (Taylor Hanson) looks kinda like a girlï¿½ haha) signed a deal with Maverick Records.
In 2005 Michelle and long time friend and collaborator Jessica Harp (also NOT an Asian Siren) formed The Wreckers (short for The Homewreckers, a nickname given to the two by Michelleï¿½s husbandï¿½ more on that in a sec) and released ï¿½Stand Still, Look Prettyï¿½ (pictured above). The duo joined country music stars Rascal Flatts and Gary Allan on a sold out U.S. tour and in December 2006, the Wreckers were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for the song “Leave the Pieces”.
Michelle married her bass player Teddy Landau (19 years older than her pictured below) and together they have a baby girl named Owen (isn’t that a boy’s name???) Isabelle.
