'The Independent Music Show'

Is privileged to Present.....

Melanie Rose Dyer's new album, recorded in Nashville over the past three years, is titled The Long Way Around.

That's an apt title for a project that has literally been a lifetime in the making. "This is my life's project – it kind of is my life story," Dyer says. This is no typical Music Row production. It has little in common with today's mainstream country (though acts ranging from Reba to Wynonna to Lady A would be wise to raid it for songs). Dyer calls it "American roots rock with R&B influences."
She adds: "It's a very song-driven project … personal songwriting tapping into universal emotions. Real life, real emotions. It kind of goes back to my roots, what I used to do."

Dyer grew up in a small rural town in Virginia, one of seven children in a house with one bathroom. (The house of her earliest years sat on cinder blocks with chickens under it, with an outdoor toilet, and a washtub for bathing the little ones.) Dyer was in the eighth grade when they got TV. Outside household-related chores, there was little to do but listen to music, read a lot of books and use one's imagination. Such activities were formative: Today one sibling designs gold jewelry; another teaches music.

Melanie Rose's youthful musical intake was diverse: classical, gospel, R&B, folk and rock 'n' roll. Acts who caught her ear included Mahalia Jackson; Aretha Franklin; the Beatles: Peter, Paul and Mary; and the music coming out of Memphis and Motown. Out of her Dad's radio the family absorbed a constant deluge of country and ole' timey music. She was drawn to performance and discovered a gift for it. After college, she moved to Colorado, entertaining on the ski resort circuit and finding an early fan in a young Gretchen Peters, who grew up in Boulder.

She came to Nashville in 1981 without a penny to her name, for one reason: to write songs. She delivered on that goal: signing a publishing deal; writing with many of the top writers including Pat Alger ("Unanswered Prayers," "Small Town Saturday Night"); hobnobbing with Music Row hit makers and power brokers.


Then, as so often happens, life intervened. The cash flow and momentum never came. Various projects were initiated and aborted. While waiting tables with other aspiring musicians in 1986, she applied for an airline job on a lark, and that led to a 25-year career as a flight attendant. The full-time job consumed her time, but the income financed her publishing company, Fanetta Music, which has scored major cuts with artists such as folk icon Tom Rush (Appleseed Records), Rick Trevino (Sony-Epic) and Helen Darling (MCA-Decca).

When husband Tom Robb, a renowned session bass player, was diagnosed with liver cancer, she became a caregiver, largely putting her musical aspirations on the back burner for two years until well after his death in 2006. Those days remain hard to talk about. But they provoked two intensely autobiographical songs that became the genesis of The Long Way Around.

"The Lord Himself Came" is about her husband's death. "I'll Love Again" is about trying to learn to date again after two-plus decades of marriage and then two years of "very traumatic ... and very cathartic" recovery. After the former received some doubled-edged feedback – The song is incredible, but I don't know what you're going to do with it – she had a revelation: "It's my life story, it's me, and nobody can tell this story but me."

"So I think it was from there I just decided I was going to do this project," Dyer says. "I think my husband dying at 57 was like a wake-up call that you need to go ahead and do what you want to do. …During the time that he was sick, I had a sense that I could hear time just rushing by my ears."

Where she is now is a much better place, emotionally speaking. Dyer retired from the airline industry in September 2011 and is in personal, creative and business relationship with Daniel Cooper, a musician and inventor. The pair have launched a successful company, Coopercopia LLC, with the unique Cooperstand folding guitar stand.

And they are co-producers of this marvelous new record, a heady distillation of Melanie Rose Dyer's life-so-far into a soulful, heartfelt, groove-infested brew
