Melanie DeMore's Share My song, is a reflective and extraordinary production.
Her rich vocals will draw obvious comparisions to other female recording artist such as Patty Cathcart (of Tuck and Patty), Joan Armatrading and Tracy Chapman.
While the comparisons are just and respectable, DeMore should soon find critics comparing other artists work to hers.
DeMore's vocals resonate with a deep and textured tenor.
She was once told by a concert producer that her voice was too low for a woman and perhaps she should sound more like Linda Ronstatdt.
Her unique and thoughtful perspective is one that translates easily into her songs-which reflect a richness in prose and depth in her voice.
From SHARE MY SONG, she writes in "Caught Between Two Hearts': One roars like the ocean, as wide as the sea and I'm caught in the waves, feel like I'm drowning.
The other bathes me in moonlight, holding me as I dream".
Other tracks include an homage to her mother, 'Lady of Peace, and 'Rise Up'-a song which inspires listeners to speak up.
A cover of 'Love and Affection' by Joan Armatrading, is fresh and inventive.
SHARE MY SONG is a muscular and complex project, full of varied styles and rhythm.
DeMore's voice is rich and soaring with an incredible range, a perfect compliment to and embodiment of her energetic and spiritual self. - Mo Petkus Denver, Colorado
"Hard as obsidian", "sweet as chocolate", "strong as knots, "round as a waterdrop" are some of the descriptions used in an attempt to capture the big, soft sound of Melanie DeMore.
"When her voice reaches out, something touches the heart of her audience, taking her listeners deep inside themselves where their spirit lives." Ronnie Gilbert (The Weavers).
