MELISSA ETHERIDGE: This is M.E. solo

By  |  0 Comments

 

Academy Award and two-time Grammy winning artist, Melissa Etheridge, will take the stage SOLO, to perform songs from her latest album This is M.E., as well as some of her greatest hits like Come to My WindowI’m The Only One and I Want To Come Over.  The album was recorded in New York and Los Angeles, and features 11 new songs all written or co-written by Melissa.

Known for her iconic voice, profound lyrics and riveting stage presence, Etheridge will share personal stories about her remarkable journey through life and the inspiration behind some of her most beloved songs. Melissa Etheridge last performed in Montreal in November, 2012.

“A billion stars out in an endless sky, and I won’t be alone, won’t be alone won’t be alone tonight…”

That resolute yearning, that longing for connection for contact for touch…These are the core forces powering Melissa Etheridge’s cherished songs throughout her singular career. But as the rousing chorus of “I Won’t Be Alone Tonight,” the opening song of her album This is ME, it holds some new meaning, new context.

With this album, her 12th collection of new material, she is not alone as a songwriter. For the vibrant collection she teamed with some of the most creative, inventive figures on the music scene: Jerrod Bettis (Adele, One Republic, Eric Hutchinson, Gavin DeGraw), Jon Levine (Nelly Furtado, K’Naan, Selena Gomez), Jerry Wonda (Grammy Award-winning producer of the Fugees, Mary J. Blige, Akon) and Roccstar (Usher, Chris Brown) at the forefront. It was a very new way of doing things for the artist, who counts two Grammy Awards and 17 nominations, an Academy Award (for “I Need to Wake Up” from the Al Gore documentary An Inconvenient Truth) and a star on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame among her many accolades. Recording the new album proved an inspiring, electrifying experience for her, the best kind of challenge. And the resultant energy is clear in the songs.
