Following up on my telephone interview with Melissa in early 2019, we met in London after her European tour to discuss her brand new album ’The Medicine Show’ which we called as Album of the Month for April 2019. (Check out the album review section of this site for a read). This warm and engaging London interview I saved for album launch day and aired it as an hour special on my Friday rock show. A heartfelt and intimate interview, which touched on serious issues and also had much humour, there are touching appearances also from Linda, PR maestro Steve Ager (who worked on promoting Melissa’s first album) – and even the lovely girl serving the tea (what else in London!) got in on the interview! For an album about positive energy and healing, I think this interview captured the very same qualities. Enjoy!
