K. Michelle Dubois is an Atlanta singer-songwriter rocker and the first thing you should do, after reading the rest of this is check out her newest video for the song “Reckless Needs” (featuring Chris Lopez) here:

Rock fans of any certain age will dig the song and the clip, and hopefully become new Dubois fans.  Her show at Atlanta’s Star Community Bar was a powerhouse show rock with equal parts indie rock muscle and pop finesse,  with major support from openers Tigers and Monkeys, an indie NYC band led by former Atlanta by way of Nashville power rocker Shonali Bhowmik.  (KMD and Bhowmik were among the brains and beauty behind Ultrababyfat,  the center of Atlanta’s power pop universe in the mid-to-late 90’s, but that’s not important now. It probably is important but I’m just the photographer, so footnote it.)

K. Michelle Dubois delivered an equally compelling and at times blistering set of new and older songs.  A crack band behind her, including guitarist D Dixon, who is  as good as it gets, maybe better.  The band is planning another show next spring to support the upcoming LP “Harness” which you can check out in streaming form here:  https://www.kmichelledubois.com/home
