Oscar and two time Grammy winner Melissa Etheridge’s latest studio album is available for pre-order at iTunes and the first single, Falling Up is available for sale now. 4th Street Feeling will be released September 4th by Island Records.
Recorded in Los Angeles at HOB Studios, the album was produced by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones) and Steve Booker (Duffy), and co-produced by Melissa Etheridge. Melissa wrote twelve new songs for the album, which features Blair Sinta on drums, Brett Simons on bass, Zac Rae on keyboards. Melissa takes the lead on vocals, piano, harmonica, banjitar and some of her most stirring lead guitar work to date.
Etheridge also confirmed an October 21 appearance in Boston at the Orpheum Theater.
In addition to her recording career, Melissa hosts “The Melissa Etheridge Radio Show,” syndicated through Benztown Radio Networks.
Melissa will be honored by the National Women’s Museum of Art Washington DC this fall and will be included in the exhibition, “Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power.” Organized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the exhibition highlights the flashpoints, the firsts, the celebrated, and the lesser-known women who have influenced Rock and Roll from its inception through today. The exhibit will run Friday, September 7, 2012, through January 6, 2013.
