Sullivan to Release Debut 'Late Last Night' on June 26, 2020
(Los Angeles, CA) - Jazz/Folk
singer-songwriter, Melissa Sullivan to release her debut album, "Late Last Night" (Darling Sparrow) on June 26,
2020. Recorded at Sir Tiger Studios in Culver City, CA., it is a hypnotic blend of Jazz, pPop, Folk and Blues.
"Late Last Night" evokes sonic imagery of
lost connections between lovers on both Sullivan's original songs and newly realized standouts from The Great American Songbook.
It's not every singer who can move so seamlessly from their own original material to Hoagy Carmichael standards ("Skylark")
and playful Mose Allison interpretations ("Lost Mind"). Sullivan's own beautifully tender and tough originals like
("Miles Away") and the boozy, self-penned saloon song ("He's Bad") blend seamlessly.
"Late Last Night" was a team effort with co-producer credits
shared by Sullivan herself, Will Golden, Edward Maxwell (also upright bass) and Peter Adams who played piano and arranged
the music. Sylvain Carton (Bb and bass clarinet, baritone sax), Blair Sinta (drums), Chris Steele (drums, percussion), Noah
Hoffeld (cello), Leah Paul (flute) and Felipe Frago (cucia) added to the lush intimacy of this album.
Sullivan grew up on Air Force bases around the world from Wichita Falls,
Texas to Naha, Okinawa, Japan. Now an LA resident, Melissa received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in theatrical studies at the
California Institute of the Arts and is a lifetime member of the Actor's Studio. Her film and television credits include "Shameless,"
"Hawthorne," "Dragnet," "E.R.," and M.T.V.
