Melissa Ferrick's "Still Right Here" Available Now!

New York, NY - Melissa Ferrick's highly anticipated Still Right Here hit TODAY via MPress Records! Melissa's first studio recording in five years, Still Right Here boasts guest spots from the likes of Ani DiFranco and Kaki King and is a testament to the sound that this talented songstress has honed and perfected over her incredible two decade career. Melissa Ferrick's impressive career longevity 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, nearly all of which she distributed herself. There is the inspiration she's taken from the incredible artists she's shared the stage with, including Morrissey, Bob Dylan, Paul Westerberg, Weezer, amongst other. There are the stories of the crisscrossed world and the things she has both gained and lost in her wake. There is the fervent fan-base that has grown with Ferrick but above all there is the sound, a voice burnished by breakdowns and breakthroughs, refined over the twenty years she has been doing this. And now, there is Still Right Here, the sum of these hard-earned parts set to music, Ferrick's gorgeous purpose unspooling over the ten incredible tracks that comprise the album.

Praise For Still RIght Here:

  • "It's a testament to an independent artist who's making meaningful music that carries with it the kind of gravitas and joy as it did when Ferrick stepped up to the mic for the first time all those years ago. It's an important record that doesn't drown in its own importance, from an artist about whom one can easily say the same." - Pop Matters
  • "Melissa Ferrick is tireless (she seems to live on the road) and she often applies that energy to songs so bombastic that she makes Melissa Etheridge sound positively kittenish. Given half the chance, Ferrick will strum the night away, much to the joy of her worshipful fans." - TimeOut NY
  • "fierce acoustic guitar playing... (and) trademark tales of failed romances." - Acoustic Guitar
  • "Songs that cut to the bone thanks to their truthful viewpoints.' - CMJ
  • "music still pours out of her soul." - Edge Magazine
  • "Ferrick does not rely on her sterling reputation in her 17th album: her intense six-string-slapping delivery, especially on the title track, has not faded." - OutSmart
