American folk-rock singer-songwriter Melissa Ferrick was born on September 21, 1970 in Massachusetts, the United States. Melissa has been interested in music since her childhood and played violin, then piano, trumpet and bass. She taught herself playing acoustic guitar and after 2 years in Berklee College of Music, left her studies in order to pursue music career. During her career, she has released 15 albums including many live recordings. Although she hasn’t achieved mainstream success, she regularly tours and has a fan base. The breakthrough to the music business happened in 1991 when she was signed to Atlantic Records. Atlantic caught an eye on her after her performance when she opened for Morrissey. Soon, the major label dropped her, as her albums weren’t commercially successful, as the produces had expected. Now, she has her own record label Right On Records.
