I have officially set dates in April for pre-production sessions for the new album! The pre-pro sessions will take place at ContactCreate Studios in Snohomish, WA with Mr. Bubba Jones (Shabazz Palaces, Digable Planets). I have the studio for two whole days and I will be tracking brand new songs and messing with arrangements, production, mixing... I get to play around with all sorts of different guitars, microphones, amps etc. a kid in a candy store...or a Melissa in a studio. :)

I plan on having a few amazing local musicians join me on a couple songs. More on that later ;)

After we have the pre-pro sessions mixed, the plan is to give y'all some bits and pieces of the recordings, just a little tease if you will. And I know you will ;)



I am very excited to start recording my very first solo recording! I can't believe that after 15 years of writing music I have never recorded solo!  I am itching to get back in the studio and lay down some fresh tracks.

I have had a lot of fun over the years playing in a full band, but it is also a lot of work! I'm really enjoying the freedom and growth that has come with performing on my own.

I will keep you posted once I know more.

In the meantime, you can listen to my last tasty full band album produced by Jack Endino (Nirvana/Soundgarden): Seeing Blind: Let's Paint Our Whole Room With It"
