Written by

Melissa Ferrick, a well known lesbian singer-songwriter of folk-rock, is working on a new album, Still Right Here, which will be released on September 13th.

Before having the pleasure to listen her new album, we can already appreciate her first single of the same name Still Right Here.

melissa ferrick 2This single, available to be downloaded for free on her website, was inspired by a friend who walked away from a terrible car accident.

"That song is really important to me, because no matter how hard you try to run away from your stuff, it doesn’t matter. It’s always going to knock on the door for you to deal with."

We hear this guitar always accompanying her voice which still have this incredible flow with accelerations of words, very typical from Ferrick.

After already 20 years in the music industry, Ferrick celebrates through these new musics and songs the fact that she is always in the music and that she is always having pleasure to play.

"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," says Ferrick. "I’ll just keep doing this until I’m not doing it anymore."

If like me you found this first song too short, patience, the album is almost released.
