COUNTRY RECORDING OF THE YEAR - I'm Letting Go (2015)
Edmonton Music Awards (EMA)

Carrie Underwood meets Miranda Lambert. If you like feel good country music, this is fantastic!
— iTunes Review
These songs are such a breath of fresh air.

“Letting Go” delivers another powerful punch in the gut to all the false promises of love by the insincere. The carefully placed banjo blended with solid rock guitar parts makes one think of music by artists like Keith Urban but with a female vocalist instead.

letting go

On the "Letting Go" project Melody Lovejoy had the pleasure of working with Clay Krasner & RyLee Madison (7-17 Music) and Shayne Hill (NP Studios/Sawyer Brown) in Nashville, Tennessee. As a result, the recordings showcase an impressive line up of musicians who have worked with the likes of Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Terri Clark, Martina McBride, Michelle Wright, Sawyer Brown, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire and The Band Perry.

Influenced by her love of rock driven music and her country roots, Melody’s voice combines the smoky overtones of a rock diva with the clear emotion of a country songstress to bring a punchy, yet emotionally connected performance. Compared to voices such as Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jan Arden and Kimberly Perry from the Band Perry, her debut release, ‘Letting Go’ demonstrates that Melody is just as comfortable belting out power anthems as she is skilled at evoking tears in tender, heart-wrenching ballads.
