Folk | Americana,
Somewhere in between a deep dark-holler, a Texas road-house and a Manhattan bound F-Train, you'll find singer-songwriter Melissa Greener, picking a guitar and singing her truth. Inspired by modernist poets & literate folk singers, Greener's songs are exquisitely crafted portraits of the human condition - hers and ours. Melodic, rhythmic and quirky, they captivate with dynamic ranges and moody tones, in a unique language all her own. Growing up with an intoxicating potion of Mo-town, crooner tunes and 60's Laurel Canyon folkies, Greener's signature phrasing evolved. By way of a classically trained soprano mother, who sang in the lounge of the Playboy Club in Detroit, and a socialist hippie father, a unique and beautiful brew emerged.
