The album Big Bomb is about crime, riches, succeeding in life, gangsterism, the ghetto, and being at the top of hip hop.
Hip-Hop/Rap lyricist and recording artist Michelle Cadreau(Blue Sky) has developed a writing and rapping style with both subtlety and introspection to reflect her Native Canadian Indian, Finnish, Polish and Portuguese ancestry. With four CDs to her credit, the Hamilton, Ontario Canadian melds hypnotic and soulful beats with her trademark urban poetry to create a performance style that is equally juxtaposed and complementary.
Given the native Indian name Blue Sky at birth by her grandmother (who was born on a reserve in northern Ontario, Cadreau has a tattoo on her back of blue zebra stripes in the shape of an eye with the inscription ‘Blue Sky.’ It is a physical reminder of her spiritual relationship to the earth and heavens and her family.
With musical influences that include Biggie Smalls, Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg, Cadreau proudly emulates their style. Her ideas often come from a word or phrase that sparks inspiration and builds from there. She also credits her parents for her love of music. Both played in bands most of their lives – her mother (a nurse by profession) is a vocalist and drummer and her father a vocalist and bass guitarist.
Like her mother, Cadreau also plays drums, having begun lessons at age five. She is also an accomplished painter and jewelry designer and has a degree in interior design. Her connection to the visual arts has been a foundation for her lyrics, which paint pictures of the joy and pain of life.
