About Demi

Heartfelt, charismatic, and authentic are three words used to describe Demi Michelle’s music. The Pittsburgh-based pop and country songwriter turns her life experiences into songs that touch the hearts of her listeners through captivating storytelling in her lyrics and memorable melodies. She greatly looks up to Julia Michaels, Kelsea Ballerini, and Taylor Swift, three incredible songwriters who share their stories in raw and truthful ways. Demi strives to remain honest and authentic as a songwriter in her own music and during her collaborations with other songwriters and artists.

Demi pieced together her songwriting passion over the years. Her musicianship shines through, being a classically-trained pianist and knowledgeable about music theory. Also being a creative writer and in graduate school for her MFA in Writing Popular Fiction, Demi is always finding ways to blend her musical talent and storytelling in powerful ways.

Demi kicked off her songwriting journey in 2019. After releasing several singles, she delivered her debut album, Dear Diary, on October 15, 2021. This eleven-track album, which includes Demi’s popular single, “Will I Ever,” truly gives listeners a glimpse into Demi’s heart and story. The songs capture honesty and vulnerability, much like diary entries do. Demi wrote this album for herself to explore her thoughts, feelings, and insecurities. Through writing Dear Diary, she has gone on a journey of self-discovery.

It’s a new year, which means new music. Demi kicked off 2022 with her own rendition of “Homecoming Queen” by Kelsea Ballerini, which was released January 21. This is the song that led Demi to fall in love with country music, so Demi had a blast recording her own version.

On January 28, Demi was invited onto her hometown station, 100.7 STAR Pittsburgh, to be the first artist on the morning show’s new segment, Bubba Show Live and Local Music Spotlight. Along with an interview, “Will I Ever” aired during the show, making it Demi’s first play on top 40 radio.

Demi continued her 2022 releases with her country-pop single, “Across the Pond,” on February 25, which is a heartfelt thank you to the UK and the rest of her special family across the pond for all of their love and support. On March 17, Demi released the closing entry of the Dear Diary chapter, a fully acoustic, pop-folk single, “Four Leaf Clover.” The sun is about to set on Dear Diary, but that means a new dawn is coming very soon.
