(Nashville, June 7, 2013) Great news! Michelle’s long-anticipated new album, Strong, now has an official release date: JULY 9, 2013! The album, featuring her latest single, Strong, is Michelle’s first release of original material in seven years.

Capturing Wright’s distinctive style and expressive voice, Strong showcases her remarkable growth as a singer and songwriter – inspired by the perseverance and strength that she has witnessed in friends, family and strangers over the years. Recorded in Ontario and Nashville, the album was produced by Jason Barry (Dean Brody, Terri Clark, Jason Blaine), Eric Silver (Neal McCoy, Ricochet) and Danick Dupelle (Emerson Drive).

Her passion for songwriting has grown with her newest project, for which she co-wrote 10 of its 11 songs.
“I created this record with a group of friends that I admire as writers, singers and producers. We had a lot of fun,” says Michelle. “The songs are a collection of my observations about life and the people around me and how we’re all just stumbling through it. At time there is laughter and joy; at other times, pain and disappointment. Overall, I hope this record is inspiring and relatable to my fans.”
