Calm Paradox is Michelle Kennedy. And in many ways, Michelle Kennedy is a calm paradox.

For starters, Ms. Kennedy is half-Jewish (mother) and half-Persian (father). Moreover, the agnostic liberal was raised as a Mormon in the Texas Christian “Bible Belt.” Some might even raise eyebrows at the fact she majored in Philosophy at a religious institution — to which she will quip that her alma mater had an excellent philosophy program.

Law student by day, indie rocker by night… the 20-year-old singer-songwriter is a super hero of sorts: Kennedy was a classically trained vocalist and harpist before she took up the guitar. She was also an avid dancer for over ten years, having studied ballet, tap, and jazz.

A native of Houston, Texas, Kennedy moved to Utah in 2008 where she played at open mic nights and small acoustic shows. She launched her label in summer 2010 and recruited bandmates as the next step in an ambitious and entirely misguided endeavor. But plans fell through, and Kennedy started law school shortly thereafter.

So she walked into the studio with her guitars and walked out four months later with a wicked debut album called How to Mind & a clever new moniker called Calm Paradox.
