Melissa Etheridgethe 1990s rock icon and Grammy Award winner, takes his “One Way Out” tour to the Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 24 at Chumash Casino. Tickets for the show are $59, $64, $69, $79, and $89.

“One Way Out” is the 16th studio album released by Etheridge, which takes its 38-city North American tour to the Chumash Casino Resort.

Etheridge began as an underground hit, but its unique sound quickly caught the attention of record producers. In 1988, her self-titled debut album, “Melissa Etheridge”, peaked at number 22 on the Billboard 200. The album’s lead single, “Bring me Some Water”, was nominated for a Grammy Award, which would be the first from 15 career Grammy nominations.

It was in 1993 that Etheridge really made a name for himself. She won her first Grammy for the single “Ain’t it Heavy”. Later that year, she released her best-selling album to date, “Yes I Am”, which went six times Platinum. The album included arguably his two most popular songs of all time: “I’m the Only One” and “Come to my Window”. Both songs reached the top 30 in the United States, with “Come to my Window” earning him a second Grammy.

Known for her confessional lyrics and hoarse, smoky voice, Etheridge continued to perform and make music. On average, she releases a new album every three years. In 2005 she released a compilation album called “Greatest Hits: The Road Less Traveled”. In 2007, she won an Oscar for the song “I Need to Wake Up”, which she wrote for the movie “An Inconvenient Truth”. In 2019, Etheridge released her 15th album, “The Medicine Show”.
