Vancouver based singer / songwriter Michelle Suzanne Cote was born in San Diego, California and spent her childhood in Belgium, Germany and Canada. Since moving to Vancouver, Michelle has recorded with Spirit of the West's, Jay Knutson and played with Laura Doyle while continuing to develop her own songwriting skills. After spending many years listening to her father's extensive music collection and being influenced by his love of music, she began playing guitar and writing songs at the age of fourteen.
Drawing on a diverse array of influences, including U2, Maroon 5, Everything But The Girl, Dido, Lamb, The killers, Iron and Wine and many others, Miss Mercury will stand out as original and ground breaking.
Co-produced with Sam Ryan of SOS Studios, Miss Mercury's inspirational debut full length album is scheduled for release in 2010. With dynamic melodies, danceable rhythms and inventive lyrics, the album showcases Michelle's songwriting skills as a new and exciting emerging artist.
Blending elements of electronica, pop, and ambient rock, Miss Mercury's debut album features some of Vancouver's most accomplished musicians, including Juno Nominee Chris Gestrin and synth (Coco Love Alcorn), Phil Addington on Bass(Swank), Christian Prekratic and Rick Rodney on Lead Guitars.
Most recently, Michelle has begun collaborating with Juno nominee drummer and producer Richard Brown, whose touring roster includes Divine Brown, Jimmy Bowskill, Big Sugar, T.Nile to name a few.
Radio Broadcaster and Producer Kevin Clark says: "Miss Mercury's debut single "No Chemistry" sizzles with originality and great melodic hooks.The song backs up its infectious groove with a great pay-off chorus and a very good lyrical idea. Being a former radio broadcaster for 12 years, I have a heard a lot of different songs. I think "No Chemistry" could definitely be a hit."
