Art of the Song / Standing "O" Podcast
Melissa Monforti - Mid-Week Coffee Break

Our guest on the Mid-Week Coffee Break is Melissa Monforti.

Coffee with a friend.  We were discussing her newly published book and my desire to finally record after 15 years of writing songs, when in the course of the stimulating conversation, an idea came to me.  Why not blog about the process?

I hang on every word when performing artists speak about their creative process, or even what they had for lunch, both on stage and in interviews.  Writing about the recording process, how I write songs, and what I think about the big deep world - that's part of what I do now and I love it.

I also love the conversations that are popping up on the blog and beyond.  I feel content being part of a bigger discussion exploring creativity.  Perhaps you'd like to grab glass of wine and step into my brain for a minute.  You can read the blog at

My music might be described as contemplative folk music.  I hope you'll enjoy a listen.

The Standing "O" Project is about socially responsible streaming--excellent musicians and exceptional fans taking over the music business. You're invited to find good, new, non-commercial music in a venue that lets musicians have an actual revenue stream. Come and connect with artists on a whole new level. Support musicians with an unheard of 50/50 split of proceeds. And gain access to rare music, video and interview content. You can be part of this revolutionary community and matter to the music at #sociallyresponsiblestreaming
