Hunt Allcott, Jim Batcho, Emilio Lacayo—drums
Eric Miller and Melissa Rapp
Melissa Rapp writes strong, lively songs and sings them in a loose, relaxed way. Her debut is a solid, likeable record. "Waimaolo Night" is a sweet, reflective song. "Fighter" is funky and tough. Rapp seems to be at home with that style too. "The One You Remembered" has a great groove. The humorous lyric prevents "Don't Ask me to be yours" from becoming bitter. The piano ballad "Fragile" is another standout track.
