Hospital Radio was released in the spring of 2008 to a warm local response. La Crosse, WI arts weekly Second Supper proclaimed that "Michelle Lynn blew us away at this past summer's Culture Shock festival..." and Decorah's Inspire(d) Magazine was "...impressed by the depth and experience of her lyrics". Hospital Radio has Michelle utilizing piano and backing musicians, while continuing to engage listeners with her surprisingly unyielding stream-of-consciousness approach. 'Do You Know Where Your Music Comes From?' by Amalia Vagts, Inspire(d) Magazine, July '08 Michelle recently released her second recording 'Hospital Radio,' a remarkable collection of musing that seem way beyond her years. While she still feels like she's dealing with the same subject matter as the first album, she's looking at it in a different way. 'I'm a 22-year-old-waling-adolescent-brain, but now I'm able to view my adolescence,' she says. 'I'm still hung up there, but now I can observe it.' I am always impressed with the depth and experience in her lyrics and ask what conclusions she draws from her own life through her music. 'Writing is a place to make connections,' she says. 'A lot of artists think it's bizarre how prophetic their music is to themselves.' Some of her own songs could be seen as prophetic of at least projected into the future, she says, such as 'My Captian's Bed', which deals with the struggle to maintain one's self within a relationship. While the content matter deals with someone well into the complexities of a long-term relationship, she wrote the song in the first week of one.
