Melissa Ferrick's impressive career as a predominantly independent artist is virtually unheard of in today's industry and speaks to her talent and the world she has built for herself. There is her expansive body of work, mapped out over the sixteen albums that comprise her career to date.
"I'm glad I've gotten as far as I have. I'm glad I've survived the industry and its changes, that I can still make a living playing shows and making records. And whenever I start to think maybe I shouldn't do this, I try to remember that it's no accident that I've written 150 songs, and people are still coming to shows. I'll just keep doing this until I'm not doing it anymore." states Melissa.
Listening to the tracks on her new release, brings on that familiar emotion and passion that Ferrick has always brought to her fans. You can instantly relate to feelings of falling in love, breaking up, and recovering from broken hearts. Album namesake and opening single, "Still Right Here" serves as the records mission statement. "The track was inspired by a friend who walked away from a terrible car accident," Ferrick states. Musically, the track showcases the signature guitar sound that Melissa is revered for, blending seamlessly with her lawless gritty vocals.
