Grammy Award-winning songwriter and performer Melissa Etheridge returns to Hawaii with one show at the Blaisdell Concert Hall on Monday, July 23rd at 7:30pm, and one show at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater on Tuesday, July 24th at 7:30pm.
Long a core Island Records artist since the release of her critically acclaimed eponymous RIAA double-platinum debut album, Etheridge’s popularity is solidly built around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water” (from her debut), “No Souvenirs” (from Brave And Crazy) and “Ain’t It Heavy” (from Never Enough), 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, this time for Best Female Rock Performance. The album went six times platinum and spent more than two and a half years on the album charts. Her highest charting album, Your Little Secret (#6 on the Billboard Top 200), included the hit single, “I Want to Come Over.” Among her many accolades are a Juno Award for International Entertainer of the Year, an ASCAP Pop Award for Songwriter of the Year, and the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2007.
