Michelle Libran Bell

Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, but raised in the coal region town of Pottsville, PA, Michelle Libran Bell is the perfect combination of exotic and pragmatic. A published poet, jewelry artisan, and small business owner, Michelle has been singing for as long as she can remember, and has even studied with the reknowned opera coach Cora Gamelin. Michelle's tastes reflect her geographical bi-polar upbringing, ranging from Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald, through Karen Carpenter and PJ Harvey.

Michelle claims that her relationship to the Project is "scandalous" in nature, and that it's a secret that she'll never tell. She is also quick to point out that "all bets are off" after a couple of martinis.
