Tina Michelle was raised in Riverview, Florida with the legacies of moonshine runners, fast cars, endless summers, Outlaw country, and a little of Walt’s magic.
At an early age, Tina found her country listening to her mom’s 8-tracks of Patsy, Tammy, Dolly, and Elvis, and her dad’s southern rock.
She got a feel for the stage as a teenager at local events and county fairs, including singing the National Anthem at East Bay Raceway – the “best dirt track in the south”.
Eventually outgrowing the local scene, Tina moved to Dallas, and later Chicago. After college and a bit of life experience under her belt, she headed west to Los Angeles. Quick to team up with local musicians and veteran music producer Chuck Sparks, she began recording and putting together music projects.
Today you can find Tina playing in the greater Los Angeles area and beyond, with her bands Tina Michelle & the Rhinestone Cowboys and New Wild West. She has performed for discriminating clients such as John Paul Mitchell Systems, Leatherman, Bay Club and Pasadena Tournament of Roses Equestrians and at special events including the Norco Mounted Posse PRCA Rodeo, OakHeart Country Music Festival and Mammoth VillageFest.
Tina also hosts and teaches line dancing with her dance team The Rhinestone Cowgirls. When she isn’t on the mic, she’s got the pencil, honing her craft of songwriting. Look for her latest single, "Daddy Was an Outlaw", scheduled for release by New Wild West summer 2019.
