Michelle Mangione, Grace Slick take over the airwaves this weekend
2009-08-14 · By Editor
The Summer of Love…As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, Michelle Mangione is busy ushering in a brand new (but never improved) Summer of Love.
Mangione and Grace Slick have been invited to appear on two of the hottest SoCal radio stations. Turn up to volume and listen that beautiful voice and those inspiring ukulele strings broadcast from local stations.
Songwriter and acclaimed drummer Michelle Mangione has just released her second CD What is a Saint. The lyrics to the title track were co-written with rock icon Grace Slick (formerly of Jefferson Airplane). Slick, who describes Mangione as “…a gifted artist and poetic songwriter” also contributed lyrics to the song “Love Disappears.”
From its inception much of What is a Saint was created primarily by Mangione in her home “bedroom” studio – from writing to arrangements, to production to performances. In addition to most of the acoustic and electric guitar work on the record, she plays drums, piano and percussion.
