A good start today’s show…..Mark cues up the first song to play, calls me on Skype….and while the song plays we have the mic still on…my husband Mark comes running up the hallway to let us know lol too funny, however it was all good and Mark thought it was funny so we thought we would leave it in! Of course out of respect for the artist, we replayed the song! The beauty of a live radio show!
Our guest on today’s show from Nashville Tennessee, was the beautiful and multi- talented MELISSA VANFLEET! Considering that Melissa was on her lap top in her car, she came through loud and clear….should I mention that she was using free Wi-Fi outside one of the world’s biggest fast food stores ! Lol I won’t mention the store but let’s just say if she was going to order she would have gotten a “Happy Meal”. We laughed about this as we have had so many guests tune in from some very funny places! They will do anything to get on TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE!
Not only can Melissa dance, sing; write music, play piano, she made for a perfect guest and would make a fantastic host! Melissa came over the airwaves in a clear and confident manner. She talked about her musical background, her move to New York, and her upcoming EP called “STARS IN MY EYES” which we are looking forward to hearing!
Melissa shares my love of the big band sound, in particularly Glenn Miller and believe it or not we actually share the same birthday February 8th.
During the show we were getting a lot of positive feedback from people that were interacting on twitter about Melissa’s music! After today’s show, I expect she has gained a few more followers.
Anyway, this blog is just a brief description of the show, and I would encourage you to download the podcast and her MELISSA VANFLEET for yourself! You can also hear her gorgeous giggle and bubbly personality! http://www.butterfliesradio.com/home/twitter-tuesday-live/
“Martyr” was written by Melissa and her most frequent cowriter Brittany Moses. It is going to be a bonus acoustic track on Melissa’s upcoming EP!
SETTING MYSELF UP FOR A HEARTBREAK
This song, like “Martyr”, was also written by Melissa and Brittany. It is a heartfelt acoustic piano-driven ballad.
THE MESS YOU MADE
Melissa wrote “The Mess You Made” about a relationship situation where someone is cheated on and instead of kicking the cheater out, she makes him stay and clean up the mess he made!
