“Melody Hill,” the grunge-pop, atmospheric concept album is the soundtrack for Jessica Bell 's debut novel “String Bridge” (Lucky Press, LLC.), and channels the musical stylings of PJ Harvey, Patti Smith, Nick Cave , Joni Mitchell, Nightmares on Wax, Enigma, among others.
The songs are written from the perspective of Melody, the main character from “String Bridge,” as she plans a return to the stage, reviving a musical career she previously abandoned for motherhood. Bell as songwriter mirrored Melody's musical influences in crafting the album.
In collaboration with George Priniotakis from Artracks Recording Studios in Athens, the styles of rock, pop, folk, and ambience were combined to create an atmospheric grunge CD that is also a visceral and addictive lyrical story.
