When you might figure out Melody Federer’s music. Melody releases something that will surprise you. It's no wonder since she calls her style of music "genre-agnostic". Makes sense once you see her collaborations from Burt Bacharach, P!nk, Hilary Duff, to electroclash producers Plastik Funk and Gazzo. She’s written R&B tracks for Kelly Rowland, traditional folk-rock tunes for Jacob Whitesides, and crafted alongside Michael Buble. Texas-born in a religious setting, Melody thought the nomadic life suited her best. She's lived in New York, Paris, Los Angeles, and Nashville. But shares why she has settled down in Washington state in conversation and how that affects her perspective on music. A songwriter at heart, Melody shares some pretty personal insight into her process. The emotions of abandonment, loneliness, subconscious or stream of consciousness writing are tapped into, but also the balance of TMI details to put in songs. Are writing "happy" songs a little bull-shit? In life, when is something worth fighting for, and should you fight for something that isn't healthy?
