"Hide & Seek Me" (2014) by Melissa Fielding - CD Digipak

14.00

Hide & Seek Me - the gorgeous debut album from singer-songwriter Melissa Fielding - brings you to a place of striking beauty, mysterious romance, and powerful emotions. Here are fourteen meticulously-crafted melodic statements on love, lust, loss, revenge, madness - and everything in between - strung together into a delicate, ready-to-wear lyrical necklace.

An alumni of Berklee College of Music, Melissa has been based in New York City since 2013. At shows, she captivates her audience with her intoxicating vocals and genuine emotions poured into each and every word. 

Hide & Seek Me features the talents of nearly 30 incredible performers in support of Melissa’s artistry, with a special focus on some seriously talented female musicians. This is an album that matches unabashedly heartfelt compositions with supremely skilled instrumentalists, arrangers, and engineers - featuring, in particular, several breathtaking string arrangements by composer Karien de Waal of South Africa. No expense has been spared to ensure that this record is 100% authentic, with the sort of grand production value that evokes a bygone era in pop music. Throughout the record, it's this attention to detail that makes Hide & Seek Me an expression of timelessness - in love, music, and life. 

Inspired by fleeting connections in an iridescent world of enchantment, Hide & Seek Me will take you on a wandering, eclectic, and passionate ride!
