    Melissa Greener (USA) £10/£8 (OAP’s/students) Acoustic / Americana Thursday 1 May Nashville based folk-crooner Melissa Greener tells the truth. Her songs captivate with refreshing, quirkily crafted lyrics, dynamic melodies and loads of groove. All of this is supported by vocal chops that simultaneously devastate and command. Transistor Corazon, Greener’s third studio release, explores complexities of the heart - her sound is a fusion of modernist poetry, romantic literature, and a soulful 1960’s Laurel Canyon. Greener’s sophomore release, Dwelling (Anima, 2010), was produced by John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter) and has won awards and glowing reviews throughout the music industry Growing up in Detroit with an intoxicating potion of Mo-town, standard torch ballads, “oldies” and classic rock, Greener’s singular sound evolved. The unique brew emerged as the fermentation of a classically trained soprano mother, who sang in the lounge of the Playboy Club, and a politically bent hippie father. Years living in Austin, Texas made their mark on Greener’s sound and style, but her lyrical influences go back to the books of poetry that she stole from the junior high school library - Dylan Thomas, Robert Service, Dickenson and Yeats. Ever after the next adventure, Greener has trekked mountain ranges in the Alps, Slovakia and Tibet. She’s pedalled a bicycle solo across Canada and lived in a rural village in China. Her current adventure is a full time schedule of international touring, performing in clubs, theatres, festivals and house concerts. One of those is with us in Bristol, well worth a listen from this uniquely styled live performer. http://www.melissagreener.com/index/
