For the past decade Melissa Black has been a stalwart on the independent original music circuit steadily gathering accolades and building a loyal fan base.
A chance meeting with singer/songwriter Scott Bird led to a production meeting with Riversong Music and the team was assembled to work on 'The Eden Project'. Pre-production began mid 2016 and tracking started soon after. As the project developed the musical landscape was revealed and the imagery surrounding the songs came into sharp focus. The production team then developed filming ideas around the stories that were emerging from the songs, after spending time as participating artists at Tarkine in Motion 2017. The quality of the recordings and visual concepts led to Melissa becoming a Riversong Music family artist and a valuable contributor to their environmental arts project.
"I've had an amazing experience recording my new album with Riversong Music at The Back 45. Andy and Scott are an incredibly synergistic duo in the studio. They’re not afraid to push the envelope and the entire creative process is inspiring. I have found my authentic voice and sound."
