Kansas-born singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge is a folk-rock artist with strong pop sensibilities who is best known for her hits of the mid-1990s, though she released her debut album in 1988.

The album featured the Grammy Award-winning song "Ain't It Heavy," and put her on the map as a soldier in the fight for not only LGBT rights, but also for women's rights among the wave of outspoken female singer/songwriters of the 1990s including Alanis Morissette and Jewel.
