The New York Times praised Malone as “the kind of singer and songwriter who can jolt things into overdrive,” while Rolling Stone noted her gift for “soulful ballads and rowdy, riffy blasters.”
Malone had already spent decades on the road by the time she began writing 1977, regularly playing more than 200 shows a year. Along the way, she turned a number of heroes into genuine fans, from music industry legend Clive Davis (who personally signed Michelle to her major-label record deal with Arista, years before she launched her own label and kickstarted her journey as a do-it-yourself independent) to collaborators like Gregg Allman, Shawn Mullins, and the Indigo Girls.
