We are thrilled to announce Melissa Ferrick has joined the KRS family + to share her scorching hot single “Black Dress” OUT NOW.
Ferrick’s impressive career longevity as a predominantly independent artist is virtually unheard of in today’s industry and speaks to her talent and the world she has built for herself. There is her expansive body of work, mapped out over the seventeen albums that comprise her career to date, nearly all of which she distributed herself. There is the inspiration she’s taken from the incredible artists she’s shared the stage with, including Morrissey, Bob Dylan, Ani Difranco, Weezer, and Tegan and Sarah, amongst others. There are the stories of the crisscrossed world and the things she has both gained and lost in her wake. There is the fervent fan base that has grown with Ferrick, but above all, there is the sound, a voice burnished by breakdowns and breakthroughs, refined over the thirty years she has been doing this.
After eight years of working in academia, this revered live performer, songwriter, and producer is back! Ferrick’s record, “Black Dress”, conjures the swagger of The Pretenders’ “Brass in Pocket” and the relentless sexy groove of Phoebe Bridgers' “Motion Sickness”. “Black Dress” is the best rock song we’ve ever heard from Melissa Ferrick.
Ferrick has never shied away from showing vulnerability or expressing her struggles but now, she has learned to harness her power, she has sharpened her skills; look out because Melissa Ferrick is back, and if you thought she was good before, take a deep breath because her new track, “Black Dress” will only leave you wanting more.
Ferrick’s got her Rock back, and it’s awesome.
