Here’s a small excerpt from the piece:

Melinda is located in LA and is releasing her new CD. Her latest single “The Hard Way,” which was co-written and produced by Grammy winning producer/songwriter Kevin Bowe (Jonny Lang, Etta James, Lynyrd Skynyrd) is just a preview of what’s to come on her new EP.

Melinda boasts that she has been enroute to LA from Pittsburgh.  However, there has been a stop along the way.  Specifically, Boston, where she attended the Berklee College of Music, after recieving the World Scholarship award.  While at Berklee, her vocals were recognized as she found herself performing in the prestigious Singers Showcase and receiving The Aerosmith Endowment Award. During her stay in Boston, Melinda had the attention of Epic Records, as she was a member of the all girl rock band Mass Ave. Melinda is a bluesy rocker girl, and I think you will hear more about her in the time to come. Let’s learn a bit more about Melinda.
