“In a world riddled with destruction, when something pure comes along – you feel it in every pore of your fibre. Because purity and the really good stuff – is translucent. Just like Eden. Her voice is like milk and honey on the radio waves of empty rasp, forced empowerment, and seductive allure.” The Red Carpet Living
For the past decade Melissa Black has been a stalwart on the independent original music circuit steadily gathering accolades and building a loyal fan base.
A chance meeting with singer/songwriter Scott Bird led to a production meeting with Riversong Music and the team was assembled to work on 'The Eden Project'. Pre-production began mid 2016 and tracking started soon after. As the project developed the musical landscape was revealed and the imagery surrounding the songs came into sharp focus. The production team then developed filming ideas around the stories that were emerging from the songs, after spending time as participating artists at Tarkine in Motion 2017. The quality of the recordings and visual concepts led to Melissa becoming a Riversong Music family artist and a valuable contributor to their environmental arts project.
