Melisssa Ferrick is a songwriter born and raised in Massachusetts. She has
been through it all in the industry and is still in love with it. Melissa plays
and sings from her feet. There seems to be no stopping this woman who has now
moved into the arena of owning and running her own label from her home on Cape
Cod. As Melissa puts it "Right On Records is really a means to an end.
To me records aren't complicated. You make one, try to get it into stores, make
sure your posters don't suck, stay on the road and keep your website interesting
Melissa’s fiery live shows are an infectious experience, exhibiting her
magnetic personality, quirky sense of humor and outstanding musicianship. Performing
over 200 shows each year, the buzz on her is traveling quickly. With the release
of Freedom, Melissa continues to perform in front of packed houses, while her
notoriously loyal and swelling fan base often travel over states, and even the
entire, to get their "Ferrick fix." It’s rare and refreshing
to see a devoted following assembled by years of hard work, especially in these
days fleeting fans encouraged by huge advertising dollars spent. "My relationship
with my fans is an inseparable part of my music," Melissa explains. "Since
I’m on the road so often, much of my song writing is inspired by my experiences
with the audience. I’m so grateful that my fans are as dedicated to my
career as I am."
Melissa Ferrick and Brian Winton recorded and mixed "listen hard"
at The Power Station New England. Choosing the ten strongest songs and having
tond of ideas they jumped into this project with the music's well being in mind.
This marks the first professionally recorded album Melissa has had the opportunity
to product since her sophmore Atlantic record "Willing to Wait". Although
self producted, Melissa relies heavily on her musical partner Brian Winton.
His knowledge of the material and overall sensitivity for the song has become
an essential element for Melissa over the last two years. With Brian's background
in engineering and his forte in drumming his rhythms are almost instinctively
taken out of Melissas head. Brian's welcome addition allowed her the opportunity
to experiment with production ideas that she was previously unable to execute.
