About Michele Loparo

Michele Loparo is a Cleveland native raised with the classical influences of her father and the 70’s music of her mother. At 10 years old she found ACDC’s “Back in Black” vinyl in her Easter basket and her life long love affair with Rock N’ Roll began. “My first born son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 4. He did not respond well to verbal commands, so one day I just sang them to him and BAM! Immediate results. I’ve always known that music was powerful… But in our family it was life changing. When my words failed, Music spoke.” Her son Tristan (the oldest of three boys) is a musician and plays in the local band Destination (Original Raw Music). He studies Recording Arts and is going on to achieve a degree in Music Therapy to help others. “I know for certain that music… in it’s raw form, changed my sons life. Music is not what he does, but who he is.” Michele enjoys attending local venues and experiencing the many talents of North East Ohio’s local musicians as well as taking in as many concerts as possible. “I look forward to working with the Rust Belt Chronicle’s team and sharing the love of all things music with our RBC readers!”
