Michele started piano lessons at age six, at her request, and studied classical piano until she was fourteen. Throughout grade school and high school, she constantly participated in choral groups. In her late teens, she began strumming guitar to accompany her singing. Despite the encouragement of her friends, music took a backseat to finishing a degree in art, and eventually a masters in education.

After establishing herself as an art teacher, Michele resumed making music in the late nineties, and co-founded Princess Peapod soon afterwards.
