Distant Star

by Melanie Dekker

Dekker's root-pop combines a 'Voice Like Chocolate', connective lyrics and percussive guitar playing. The songs about longing, tug hard at the heart, while uplifting shed sunshine on the listener, by encouraging a release from self criticism.

Album Notes
I started writing this album about one year ago. The first song written was 'Give My Heart A Home' so it's already been heard by a few audiences, as it was the first 'born'. Somehow with this song, I felt on a path to a connectedness with both with myself and my audience. 'Worry Gets You Nowhere' was originally much longer and the chorus led to the song at first being called Estonia (yes like the country!). Martin, Stef and I began this song shortly before our outdoor festival performance in Estonia... and if you have questions about the 9 songs that followed after please ask. I love it! I hope you enjoy the journey like I did!

How 'elephant ears entertainment' describes it: Melanie Dekker's new CD 'Distant Star' reaches in deeply and grabs your heart. This vibrant CD album has a more roots music style than what we have heard on her other albums; this time her banjo playing has been incorporated and her lyrics could not be more carefully crafted and potent. Melanie has reached greater heights once again with these new recordings which are rich in depth and quality. The songs about longing, like "Distant Star" and "Give My Heart A Home", tug hard at the heart, while uplifting & upbeat numbers like "Worry Gets You Nowhere" and "You're Powerful" shed sunshine on the listener, by encouraging a release from self criticism.

Thank you!
