Music is not great, but being from the Southwest(specifically Arizona) automatically classifies her in the awesome column.
Grew up in Sedona, AZ, where she used to babysit for my friend, the 8or.
Me: Did you see hear the new Michelle Branch album?
J: Yeah...it sucked ass, just like all her music.
Me: How naive are you? Don`t you see? The point is not the quality of the music. Rather, what matters is that she is from the Southwest. THAT is true talent.
J: Being from the Southwest takes talent?
Me: Of course. Haven`t you checked out the heat?
Michelle used to baby sit and do local gigs in Sedona.
