Melanie Dekker’s Acoustic Ride (released December 2007)
This CD has a warm and intimate vibe, with additional intricate, beautiful guitar parts. The instrumentation is gentle and living room like. These songs were recorded in Melanie’s home, and Jason Nett’s home, and later also in Eric Reed‘s studio.
Acoustic Ride CD – ‘simply’ created at home, and then toured and toured and toured…This living room setting, satiated a necessary creative craving and artistic need. The lyrics capture in the moment emotion. It was somewhat of a rebound project, as it was the opposite experience to the previous fully produced Revealed album, which was very long, intense, and high end; with a lot of producers and a magical fairytale California setting. I gathered myself up again with these recordings and collection of songs. And then loved touring with this sound, in this style for many years following its release.
“We’re the Angels” had many demos and I perform it live often. Each time I hear it or perform it it carries me away into a warm wind and sparkling sunlight on the water” Melanie Dekker
