Melissa Etheridge isn't a blues artist per se, but dammit, she still packs a deep-seated wallop with her rough and raw vocal wail over her guitar's cry for help. She's been nominated for Juno Awards and ASCAP Awards as well as for numerous Grammys, and in fact has won twice. At age 51 she shows no indication of a wind down or a sit back. Instead she's revved up the bus and launched a new tour promoting her 14th release, "4th Street Feeling." Positively? Absolutely!
