Michelle Bloom, singer-songwriter, shares a Pasadena studio with her husband, Scott
Nelson, a contemporary painter.
At the age of 8 she climbed into a tree with her first guitar and began what has been
a prolific and rewarding career in music. Since those early days Michelle has performed
at many retreats, conferences, and colleges including Pepperdine, UCLA, St. John’s, West-
mont, and Azusa Pacifc where her talent for crafting moments of spiritual nourishment has
been highly regarded.
Michelle is thrilled to collaborate with Hilary Thomas’ Lineage Dancers and the new
Lineage Performing Arts Center. Her songs, “Jumping Bean” and “The Cloud Song” are
favorites at the Kidspace Children’s Museum. The dancers have delighted audiences with
performances set to “Fire and Rain” and “Silver Lined Circles” as they have raised funds for
cancer and other causes.
Her latest work, a group of 10 songs called Fields of Attention, is the result of Michelle’s
deeply felt belief that the attunement offered by poetry and song is essential for human
well-being. This theme in her music has attracted the attention of Dr. Dan Siegel, author,
neuroscientist, and founder of The Mindsight Institute, who invited her to present her work
to his students at UCLA as an exploration of the connection between art and the astounding
developments in the field of “Interpersonal Neurobiology”.
She is currently working on recording Fields of Attention, her fifth studio project, and is honor-
ed to be performing for Art Night 2010, at the Lineage Performing Arts Center, 89 Fair Oaks
Avenue in the heart of Old Town.
