Melinda Kingsley is a singer/songwriter that lives in Atlanta, Ga., that grew up in the foothills of North West Ga. and moved to Atlanta to pursue singing in a more serious venue. 'I feel that singing is my strongest thing and I really just started playing guitar because i needed a vehicle for my songs' says Melinda, 'I have a day job so i can just perform for the love of it .'. Melinda's sometimes complex, sometimes plainspoken verse is always hiding something for the listener to find and keep. And whether she is singing in a soft, emotionally raw voice as in 'how much', or roaring on 'leave it alone', this is someone that you will remember. 'This album is something I'm proud of. there are things that i would change, but I think there are some things you never really want to take your hands off of. This album is about me, and the people I've loved; and what we've done and haven't done for each other and ourselves so, it's difficult to say it's finished.'. Melinda lives quietly in Atlanta in a tiny house with her dogs, Jake and Chicken, and turtle named Merridoc who won't eat fish.
