Crazy Aunt Mary

Michelle Holmes is a successful singer, musician, and songwriter. She was the lead singer and bass player for the award-winning L.A. indie rock band Moe Jones for five years and has won awards eight years running for her songwriting from ASCAP. She played at venues such at The Key Club, Hard Rock Cafe, The Gig, The Joint, Genghis Cohen, Hallenbeck's, and Molly Malone's. Michelle is now singing, playing, and writing for Crazy Aunt Mary, an edgy, acoustic-driven band that’s full of surprises. She produced their first album, “Sexy Epsilon,” and they've been gigging around town at great venues like Rusty's Surf Ranch, Kulak's Woodshed, Maeve's Residuals Bar, Pitfire Grill, Universal Bar & Grill, The Talking Stick, Hallenbeck's, and Liquid Lounge. They also have the good fortune to play in the annual GoGirlsMusicFest.

As an actor, Michelle has starred on stage in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles in such productions as "Dames at Sea," "Little Shop of Horrors," "Pump Boys and Dinettes," "Jekyll and Hyde," "The Crucible," which won a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award, and "The Miracle Worker," for which she won a Drama-Logue Award. On television, Michelle recurred on the ABC series "Fudge," based on the Judy Blume books, playing the sister-in-law of Eve Plumb (aka Jan Brady). She starred as Ingrid in the cult indie film classic "A Weekend with Barbara und Ingrid,” and co-starred in the film "Angus Petfarkin Paints His Masterpiece,” starring and directed by Bob Kent, who has masterfully created all of Crazy Aunt Mary’s music videos. Michelle was honored to also co-write the song, “Sexy Epsilon,” with Steve Pinkney for the film as well as play for the film's soundtrack. Michelle also appeared in author James Frey's film, "Sugar: The Fall of the West", and co-starred in "Arrest and Trial," a Dick Wolf production, part of the "Law and Order" franchise.

Michelle is passionate about animals and has been a committed vegetarian for many years.

Steve Pinkney has been a guitarist since he was eight years old, having aspired to win the affection of the younger of the Agostini sisters down the block. (Chicks like guitar players at any age.) But now he got the girl he always wanted...

A veteran of L.A bands, Steve most recently played with Moe Jones, which gigged and recorded with acclaim.
