Featured Artist.....04/Aug'/2017......

Michele D'Amour and the Love Dealers' new release, 'Lost Nights at the Leopard Lounge,' is a soulful throwback to Chicago blues and the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta. D'Amour's voice can best be related to Bonnie Raitt, but there is a little Marcia Ball in her tone and the Love Dealers' expertly mixed blues soul and funk to give the new songs a little something extra for the listener." — Troy Michaels, Innocent Words (5/15/17)

The band, based in Seattle, has played together since 2011. Michele is a born storyteller and songwriter who penned her first song (a blues) at the age of six and was a published poet by her early twenties. Her lyrics treat difficult topics with a sense of soulful whimsy and wry humor. Michele wrote songs and sang lead for several local bands before entering the local blues scene and honing her craft at blues jams.

Patrick McDanel, Michele's husband, plays bass and sings backing vocals. Patrick is a veteran of the national music scene, having played with notable bands and acts as either a regular player or fill-in. One of his favorite moments was playing at the Apollo Theater in the 90s. Ronnie Bishop (Michael Powers) is on drums, pairing with Patrick on the groove-driven sound that distinguishes the band. Ryan T. Higgins, a Centralia native who began playing guitar at the age of six, lends his guitar chops and backing vocals to the group.

The band released its first EP, "Sin Comin' On," in February 2014. Michele D'Amour and the Love Dealers was also a Washington Blues Society finalist for the 2014 International Blues Challenge. The 2015 CD, Ante Up, features twelve original songs penned by Michele. Those tracks were developed and road-tested in 2014 as the group played various festivals and venues, and recorded in the fall of 2014.

Honors: - The band was selected for rotation on STEAM Magazine Radio for April 2015;
- Ante Up was one of four CDs chosen by International Blues Broadcasters (IBBA) as Pick of the Month for May 2015;
- Michele D'Amour and the Love Dealers is a featured artist on Blues 102 / Gizmo Radio.

The band is: Michele D'Amour, lead vocals and songwriter; Patrick McDanel, bass and backing vocals; Ronnie Bishop, drums; Ryan Higgins, guitar.

   

Michele D'Amour and the Love Dealers / Press

"Lost Nights at the Leopard Lounge is a strong album with good songs, talented musicians, and fabulous production from Steve Feasley. The songs have a clear and well-balanced sound, and though they cross many blues genres they work very well together. This material will transfer well to their live show, so be sure to head over to their website to see where Michele D'Amour and the Love Dealers are playing next. If you are located anywhere from the Pacific Northwest to Central California you are in luck, as they have plenty of shows scheduled, so check them out if you get the chance! "

Rex Bartholomew - Blues Blast

"Michele D'Amour And The Love Dealers have got a sweet sound. Scratch that, they have several sweet sounds. They can rock with the best of them and then turn around with a lovely jazz sound, then get funky and lay down some tight dance tunes. I have the feeling that they can handle even more styles, but they still have the blues at their roots."

Professor Johnny P's Juke Joint

"Michele D'Amour and the Love Dealers' new release, 'Lost Nights at the Leopard Lounge,' is a soulful throwback to Chicago blues and the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta. D'Amour's voice can best be related to Bonnie Raitt, but there is a little Marcia Ball in her tone and the Love Dealers' expertly mixed blues soul and funk to give the new songs a little something extra for the listener."

Eric Schuumans - Rootstime

"I just received the newest release, Ante Up from Michele D'Amour and the Love Dealers and it's lively...New Orleans styled, Hurricane is probably a track that should go straight to the radio. It has a catchy melody, it's very danceable and fun vocally."

Bman - Bman's Blues Report

"Fronting this band of seasoned blues rascals is Michele D'Amour. With her smooth delivery she sets up for nice laid back journey through the heart of a blues soul. She can wind a tale of serious heartache or cut up over the blues "Dress Code". I would recommend this band to those that like the blues genre. So with this gauntlet thrown down Michele and the Love Dealers challenge you to Ante Up and throw the current fad called Pop Music aside and listen to something real."
