A folk-rock singer, songwriter, guitarist and activist, Melissa Etheridge is best known for her songs "Come to My Window," "I'm the Only One," "Ain't It Heavy" and "Bring Me Some Water," just to name a few. She has received fifteen Grammy Award nominations, winning two, and an Academy Award. In September 2011, Etheridge received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Etheridge is known for her mixture of confessional lyrics, pop-based folk-rock, and raspy, smoky vocals. Her latest studio album "This is M.E." was her debut album for her independent label, ME Records. Distributed by Caroline Records and overseen in coordination with Primary Wave, a full-service music management and marketing strategy firm, the venture gives Etheridge new freedoms to explore creative avenues.

The album comes in a very active stretch for Etheridge, even by her seemingly tireless standards. In addition to her steady touring, both with her band and as a solo act, she did a week stint in the role of St. Jimmy in "American Idiot" on Broadway in 2011, continued her noted activism speaking to the United Nations on LGBT rights as human rights, sang her own "Uprising of Love" and John Lennon's "Imagine," as part of this year's New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square and performed at the opening ceremonies of the World Pride week in Toronto. But the making of the album was inspired and inspiring, energized and energizing. It's there in every note. The bottom line, she says simply, "I've made an album I love."
