Melissa Ferrick

“I’m glad I’ve gotten as far as I have. I’m glad I’ve survived the industry and its changes, that I can still make a living playing shows and making records. And whenever I start to think maybe I shouldn’t do this, I try to remember that it’s no accident that I’ve written 150 songs, and people are still coming to shows. I’ll just keep doing this until I’m not doing it anymore.” - Melissa Ferrick

Melissa Ferrick is a musical icon with a voice that’s instantly familiar, comfortable and mind-blowing. Since her last critically acclaimed release, Goodbye Youth, her passionate fan base has waited patiently for Still Right Here to be finished- and finally, the news we’ve been waiting for has come, the record is set to hit Sept 13 via New York City’s MPress Records! Still Right Here is Ferrick’s first studio record in five years, and what a record it is. Boasting guest vocals from friend and often tour mate, Ani DiFranco and guitar work from the incredible Kaki King, the ten song set, recorded in Williamsburg with producer Alex Wong (Vienna Teng, Ari Hest), as well as in Ferrick's hometown of Newbury, Massachussetts with co-producer Thomas Eaton (Mark Erelli, Ellis Paul), is worth every second of the wait.

MPress Records & BLURT Magazine present: Seth Glier's


Seth Glier

MPress Records has teamed up with BLURT Magazine to premiere the official music video for the title track off of singer-songwriter and 2011 Independent Music Award Winner Seth Glier's critically acclaimed "The Next Right Thing".

Watch the premiere on BLURT Magazine now!

Directed by Zack Sweeney in the streets and subways of NYC, the video emulates the theme of the song with its organic feel and speaks to the simple yet powerful message in the song, which Culture Mob says "immediately resonates with its very present percussion and soulful, incendiary vocals. The song paves the way for the overarching theme of the album- doing the next right thing- thinking outside of yourself to change the world for the better despite life’s constant challenges."

BLURT recently ran a fantastic review of the record release on MPress Records in January 2011. They gave the album 7 stars and raved "...this material sounds like nothing if not classics in waiting...its the essence of perfection". Read the entire glowing review here.
