Robertson was born into music.
parents are musical, and her grandparents on
both sides, were all musical. In fact Michelle
learnt to sing before she could talk! It was
therefore impossible for her to escape piano
lessons up until her adolescence; a fact that
she has no regrets about, as she is now an
accomplished pianist and singer-songwriter.
Michelle began her performing
career at the age of 9 accompanying her mother
on the piano. By the age of 13 she was
performing as a keyboard player and back-up
vocalist in a rock band.
Although having learnt to read
music, Michelle has always had a natural gift
for playing by ear and by the age of 11 used
this skill to express herself through her song
At the age of 16, Michelle moved
with her family from her place of birth in
Wollongong to Batlow where she continued song
writing and teaching piano. Michelle’s passion
for music and a belief in her own musical
abilities compelled her to eventually sell her
acoustic piano and invest in a PA and electric
keyboard to pursue a dream of performing her own
Soon after, Michelle’s two
younger sisters Linda and Karen joined her to
form a trio called The Boardman Sisters. Her
sister’s rich harmonies provided a wonderful
support for Michelle’s lead vocals. Michelle has
written a number of songs, which are available
on her debut album with her sisters, simply
titled “THE BOARDMAN SISTERS”.
After several very successful
years performing with The Boardman Sisters,
Michelle’s passion for singing and music brought
her to Wagga Wagga, where there was greater
opportunity to pursue her solo career.
Michelle is now a well
established and renowned performer in around the
Wagga area, of the highest calibre, which is
evident through her amazing piano skills and
harmonious vocals that can be enjoyed at her
many solo appearances throughout the area.
Michelle has also been involved
in several local shows
including; PIANOMAN (Billy Joel Tribute
Show), HOT AUGUST NIGHT (Neil Diamond
Tribute Show), WAGGA CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR, WAGGA WAGGA TAKES 2,
CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN, TURN BACK THE HANDS OF TIME and DEANO & JERRY (Dean
Martin & Jerry Lewis Tribute). As well
as the highly successful sell out production

Whether it is at one of her
regular Club gigs around Wagga or entertaining
on stage in a musical production, Michelle has
the skill, the passion and the dedication to
create a vibrant atmosphere wherever she
