Guitarist & Oud player Michelle Webb is recognized as a incredibly creative and innovative guitarists and a restless collaborator who is engaged in exploring and extending the boundaries of her instrument. Michelle Webb was in Jersey City, New Jersey. Here she spent the early years of her life immersed in a community of musicians, break dancers, artists and poets. In 1988 Michelle attended the Duke Ellington School for the Arts in Washington DC and studied jazz with DC guitar legend Tom Newman and Sax great Davey Yarbrough and In 1992 Michelle received what was at the time the second largest scholarship given to a conservatory student to attend Oberlin Conservatory in Oberlin OH. Here she studied with guitarist Bob Ferreza and jazz educators Wendell Logan & Jimmy Owens.

Michelle moved to Brooklyn, New York in 1994 where she expanded her musical career to include becoming a composer & sound designer as well as a DJ. Her vast, poliedric repertoire is particularly oriented towards contemporary nu-jazz forms and music from Northern Africa, particularly Egypt and Morocco. Her activities span across performing in her own group The Michelle Webb Trio, solo performances, contemporary and avant-garde music and free improvisations. She has been invited to play across Europe and Lebanon as well as being a former member of the contemporary classical group The Estamos Ensemble who in late 2009 did a 2 week tour in Mexico. In 2010 Michelle released two new CD's DC / Istanbul and The Michelle Webb Group Live in Brooklyn, both of which where released by her own record label Nachshon Red Sea.
