Grammy Award winner Melissa Manchester returns at long last!
Let’s hear it for the boys! More than 25 years after Melissa Manchester released “Tribute,” her 1989 album that honored the great female singers who influenced her, she turns the tables with “The Fellas,” a radiant encomium to the men, including Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé, Tony Bennett and Dean Martin, and the iconic songs they made famous.
Early on, as a back up singer for Bette Midler, Melissa playedCarnegie Hall and just six months later she went on to headline there and performed for sold out audiences across the country.
Her music has established her as a compelling singer songwriter and her debut releases 'Home To Myself' and 'Bright Eyes' positioned her as a dynamic talent, launched by smash hit single “Midnight Blue.” She received her first Grammy nomination for Best Pop Female Vocal Performancein 1979 for the Peter Allen/Carole Bayer Sager-penned “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” winning the Grammy in that category four years later for “You Should Hear How She Talks About You.” Melissa and Kenny Loggins co-wrote the radio classic “Whenever I Call You Friend,” and her songs have been recorded by Barbra Streisand, Dusty Springfield, Alison Krauss, Roberta Flack, Johnny Mathis, Kathy Mattea, Peabo Bryson, Cleo Laine and Barbara Cook, among many others.
You can look forward to Melissa's hits, plus songs from her latest album 'For The Fellas!'
