Etheridge's talents were apparent at an early age; She learned to play the guitar at eight-years-old and was invited to perform with several groups as a teenager before attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. After lasting a few semesters, she decided she had the chops to pursue a music career and moved to Los Angeles. She was discovered and signed by Island Records who released her self-titled debut in 1988. The album was an underground hit that eventually became certified double-Platinum and earned her a Grammy nomination. She released her sophomore set, Brave and Crazy, in 1989 and toured extensively to develop a large and loyal fan-base. She earned her first Grammy for the effort and continued to tour extensively.

Etheridge returned in 1993 and recorded her massively successful Yes I Am album which addressed her sexuality and became the biggest record of her career. The album featured her signature single "I'm the Only One" and spent nearly three years on the Billboard 200. The album's second single, "Come to My Window", earned her another Grammy Award and Melissa Etheridge tour dates were scheduled nationally to promote her breakthrough album. Following the success, Etheridge released three more successful albums, - Your Little Secret (1995); Breakdown (1998); and Skin (2001). Etheridge continued to tour aggressively to satisfy her national fan-base.
