Melissa Etheridge is one of rock music’s great female icons. Her critically acclaimed eponymous debut album was certified double platinum and her popularity was built around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs,” and “Ain’t It Heavy,” 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.
The six times platinum album spent more than two and a half years on the album chart. In 2007, Etheridge won an Oscar for Best Original Song and in 2011, she made her Broadway debut as St. Jimmy in Green Day’s rock opera, “American Idiot,” where she replaced Billie Joe Armstrong for one week. She recently released “The Medicine Show,” which is an album of renewal, of reconciliation, of reckoning, of compassion and, most profoundly, of healing.
