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

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

Etheridge began as an underground success, but her unique sound quickly caught the attention of record producers. In 1988, her self-titled debut album, “Melissa Etheridge,” peaked at No. 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 of 15 career Grammy nominations.

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

Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has continued performing and making music. On average, she has put out a new album every three years. In 2005, she released a compilation album, titled “Greatest Hits: The Road Less Traveled.” In 2007, she earned an Academy Award for the song “I Need to Wake Up,” which she wrote for the film “An Inconvenient Truth.” In 2019, Etheridge released her 15th album, “The Medicine Show.”
