Occasionally the Great Spirit grants an individual the opportunity to reincarnate without actually dying. Such is the case with Michelle Josef. She is the present day incarnation of drummer Bohdan Hluszko who gave up his identity to become Michelle in September 1997. To many, she is both a newcomer and an old friend. The name and form may have changed, but the sparkle in the eye, the bite in the humour, and the passion in the playing will be familiar. Celebrating her 27th year of musicianship, Michelle brings a wealth of playing experience as well as a unique perspective on life." Edmonton Folk Music Festival program 1999
