"Music is one of the most important things in life. It makes you feel good. It gets you through the rough times. It makes you want to drive fast, cry, have sex (not necessarily in that order). It is the sound track to your life. " (Melissa Greener)

"Everybody Wants Some" ......het zal waarschijnlijk niet slaan op wat het mooie kind in de inlay netjes achter de handjes verborgen houdt al kan ik mij voorstellen dat behoorlijk wat dames er massa's poen voor over hebben om over zulke pronte borstjes te beschikken.
Altijd leuk als niet het alleen het oor maar ook nog het oog verwend wordt en wat "Transistor Corazon" betreft is Melissa in beide doelstellingen met grote onderscheiding geslaagd. Het is onze eerste kennismaking met deze emo -folk -crooner - born and reared in Mo-Town -  die onder de hoede van Geraint & Deb Jones  nu ook de UK, Ireland and mainland Europe probeert te veroveren.  Melissa Greener's Transistor Corazon" is een "Kickstarter" produkt (http://www.kickstarter.com/)*** en dat is anno 2013 voor behoorlijk wat singer - songwriters nog de enige mogelijkheid om niet alleen een album op de markt te brengen maar ook om uit de kosten te geraken. Alhoewel ....
Voor "Transistor Corazon" - songs wired with themes of LOVE and the complexity & short - circuitry of romantic intimacy - zal het wellicht  niet stormlopen maar voor iemand  als globetrotter Melissa Greener -  “I once climbed the second highest mountain in the Swiss Alps. I once trekked the second highest mountain range in the world in Slovakia. I once spent two weeks at the holiest mountain in Tibet. I once climbed the Sinai. I once rode my bicycle from Vancouver, British Columbia all the way to North Sydney, Nova Scotia. I once lived in a little village in China where porcelain was discovered - 2000 years ago - occurring naturally in the ground. I once sailed so far into the Mediterranean I couldn't see land. I once saw so many stars in an Egyptian desert I couldn't see the sky." - moet je volgens mijn bescheiden mening echt tijd nemen. Zeg nu zelf .... blessed with a glorious, utterly distinctive voice , who writes songs like painting , the soul of a poet, the rhythm of a rocker en dan zwijgen wij nog over haar figuurtje maken wij net als producer Brad Jones ( Jill Sobule, Richard Julian, Caitlin Cary, Josh Rouse, Steve Forbert, John Prine, Garrison Starr, Maia Sharp, Hayes Carll and Jennifer Jackson. Engineered or performed on albums by Steve Earl, Dolly Parton, Ron Sexsmith, George Jones, Sheryl Crow, Randi Travis, Ricky Scaggs, Matthew Sweet, Robert Earl Keen, Marshall Crenshaw ) "Always" tijd !   (SWA)

*** Kickstarter :    Actually, it will cost around $35,000 to make the record that I want to make and properly release to all the press outlets. Even that is a low figure. $15,000 is the bare minimum that will get this project physically realized. The producer, the studio time, the musicians, the mixing, mastering and manufacturing add up to that amount. However, that does not include photography or artwork for the CD packaging, so in fact I'm low-balling myself a bit. Only if this campaign raises well over it's targeted amount will I be able to pay for radio promotion and publicity to printed media (US and Europe).
