Forget the tortured love anthems, we’re guessing Michelle Branch is happy now.
The singer-songwriter, who turns 21 on Friday, recently tied the knot with her bass player, Teddy Landau, her rep confirmed.
No other details about the musical match were released.
Landau, reportedly 19 years her senior, has been touring with Branch since 2003.
That makes him old enough to appreciate Branch’s first label boss, Madonna, who signed Branch to Maverick in 2000. A year later, the young rocker released her debut album The Spirit Room, which included the hit single “Everywhere.”
Her duet with Santana on “Game of Love” (off Santana’s Shaman album) earned them the 2003 Pop Collaboration Grammy and set her apart from look-alike artist Vanessa Carlton and Branch’s more pop-oriented peers.
In 2003, she released her sophomore effort, Hotel Paper, a critical flop that nevertheless went platinum.
Details about Branch’s current schedule are sketchy, but according to her official Website, she is planning a handful of tour dates in the U.S., Japan and Guam this summer.
The Arizona native, who played a small role in 2002’s The Hot Chick, has also taken on a sideline gig as guest designer for Flirt! nail polish and lip color. The line, named after songs on Hotel Paper, debuts in October.
