Melissa Greener

Melissa Greener

Between a deep dark-holler, a Texas road house and a Manhattan bound F-Train you’ll find singer-songwriter Melissa Greener, picking a guitar and singing her truth.
 Inspired by modernist poets & 60’s Laurel Canyon, Greener’s songs are painterly, melodic, rhythmic and quirky. Her refreshingly relatable tales captivate with dynamic ranges and moody tones, in a unique language all her own. First Prize winner of the USA Songwriting Competition (folk), Greener’s latest recent release, Dwelling, was produced by John Jennings. “Be awake and alert, and you’ll grasp the Technicolor grandeur contained within Dwelling. Greener succeeds in painting superb portraits of the human condition”
