Melissa Ferrick's 12th original album is a coming home. She has arrived in a place musically that is both familiar and new. Melissa is a better writer, engineer, producer, and overall artist. The self-titled 2015 recording is, in many ways, a new beginning for her. Written in just over a year, recorded at home, and released on her own label, she has given us a simple, eloquent, and honest acoustic album with an undeniable level of maturity.
For long-time fans, this will be a welcome new arrival. For those who are just discovering her, this is a superb way to be introduced. A completely solo effort in its process, creation, and release, Melissa Ferrick is marking the middle of her career with a perfect return to songwriting, and to herself.
