Melissa Ferrick Rocks On & Is 'Still Right Here' (video) 2Singer Melissa Ferrick has dropped her first studio recording in five years, alerting the music industry she’s back with a vengeance with the feel-good track, Still Right Here.

Ferrick’s musical career has spanned some 20 years, belying her positive, high-voltage energy and youthful good looks.

In her latest album, released by MPress Records (which also reps the velvet-voiced Seth Glier), the talented singer-songwriter boasts guest spots from the likes of Ani DiFranco and Kaki King.

The album features a beautiful and inspiring collection of upbeat, optimistic tunes such as One of a Kind, Seconds Like These and I Will Back You Up, spotlighting the inspiration Ferrick has drawn from rock legends she has shared the stage with, including Bob Dylan, Weezer, Paul Westerberg and Morrissey.

Ferrick has been sharing the music that moves her with the fans who love it on a U.S. tour, which kicked off in Provincetown, Mass., and wraps up Oct. 29 in Dallas, Texas. In November, Melissa is set to tour with Ani DiFranco across the East Coast.
