Our guest last week on Art of the Song was Colorado singer/songwriter, Melissa Monforti. She started writing songs in 1999 and just recently began recording and blogging about her life as a songwriter. Born on the summer solstice of 1970 in Brooklyn, NY, Melissa grew up in a family of very talented musicians. It took her a while to live into her authentic life as a musician, but she’s living it fully without excuses now.
We visited with Melissa in front of a live audience at the Art of the Song Coffeehouse in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In the second half of the show, we’ll hear from Harvard University lecturer, Dr. Shelley Carson with an introduction to her book, Your Creative Brain… for the Creativity Corner.
