Melissa Ferrick

The incredible Melissa Ferrick is set to zigzag across the country in the coming months to support her highly anticipated upcoming release Still Right Here, set to hit on September 13 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 impressive two decade career. The tour kicks off in Provincetown, MA at the Art House Theatre for a double bill on September 3rd and 4th and winds its way across the country hitting all the major markets before wrapping in Dallas, TX at the Poor David's Pub on October 29th. November will see Melissa touring with Ani DiFranco across the East Coast.

Melissa Ferrick’s extraordinary 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 amazing artists she’s shared the stage with, including Morrissey, Bob Dylan, Paul Westerberg, Weezer, amongst others. 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 astounding tracks that comprise the album.
