A few words about Michelle's music:
"Calming, sensitive, beautifully composed music, Michelle Qureshi’s work provokes my imagination, and touches my soul. Absolutely brilliant!"
~Lee Bice-Matheson, Coauthor of the Paige Maddison Series.

"Michelle Qureshi has an amazing ability to change course and create something outstanding at a whim"
~Steven Sheppard, One World Music Radio Host

"She seems more of a sonic sorceress using a wide range of instruments and technology in her artistic alchemy."
~Michael Diamond, Music and Media Focus

"Michelle has delivered a refreshingly unique and creative album that offers an impressive configuration of subtly varied guitar-playing styles with ambient and minimalist soundscapes.
~Candice Michelle, Journeyscapes Radio

"Michelle’s music encompasses the beauty life holds. Her musicianship helps her songs maintain a sound of simplicity, while her complex melodic arrangements hang masterfully woven together, creating the soundscapes of life."
~Derek Lefholz, Artist || Founder, Embark Music “Break tha Mold”

“I sometimes open my reviews with a statement like "Guitarist so and so's new album…" and I could do that with Michelle Qureshi's Seventh Wave, but to be honest, she plays so much more than guitars on this album that it would be misleading to say the least. On this bold, adventurous, and broad of vision recording, she plays acoustic and electric guitars, Native American flute, didgeridoo, cello, banjo, steel tongue drum, percussion, keyboards, synths, and adds vocals too.”
~Bill Binkelman, Zone Music Reporter

"Michelle Qureshi is a gifted musician and songwriter who creates heart touching experiences for her audience. Her music helps take you to the Radiant One and calls you to a passionate engagement with the world."
~Richard Brendan, Radio Host, Speaker, and Founder of Journeysfire

"Michelle's music embodies the essence of joy, meditation and prayer while creating a sense of spaciousness. Her etheric sounds allow listeners to float down River Divine." ~Lily Kessler, Founder of Blooming Life Yoga Studio + School

"I instantly felt a connection with Michelle’s intuitive, skillful weaving of those elements of music that transport the soul to transcendent states. That is an inborn attribute that few externalize: Michelle brings forth that inner soul quality that induces peace and inner warmth in the beholder of her music."
~Richard Jelusich, Ph.D., Creator, Spiritual Healers Training
