Underwater and Other Places - (Both Ears Records 2008)

Recorded over the course of three days in Northern California, Underwater and Other Places chronicles Melissa's earliest songs. Penned during her late teens and early 20s, the songs on Underwater showcase the undeniable potential of this young artist. Recorded live in one room with no over-dubs or re-takes, Underwater maintains a raw touch, unencumbered by heavy production. The resulting work shows a maturity of artistry and plays like a live house show might: intimate and engaging.
