A NOTE FROM THE SONGWRITER:
Hello fans and friends!
Welcome! Thanks for visiting my online store here at CDBaby. This first album, Melancholy Frog, is near and dear to my heart. For my first 2 years of performing around Chicago, I primarily played these 14 songs (interspersed with a few others).
Rather than being a "studio album" (i.e. radio quality), MF is a collection of free favors. I owe a debt of gratitude to Gallery Cabaret, Garrett Lane, Strobe Recording, The Orphanage, and everyone involved with those places, for supporting me so much and recording me for free.
For years, people have donated $5-10 for hand-drawn copies of this album, available only at shows. However in 2010, I released my 2nd album, "Du Bist Einen Fogle!", which is radio-quality (produced by Ethan Stoller), and available on iTunes and CDBaby. None of the songs from MF appear on DBEF.
In November 2011, I brought Melancholy Frog to All City Mastering here in Chicago, wherein a professional sound engineer (aka Peter Andreadis) went through each track and fixed levels and EQ enough to make the album fully listenable. It still has that 1/2 live and 1/2 intimate solo piano/voice sound, as I didn't alter the basic content, but mastering addressed the strange peaks in levels, the weird scratchy sounds, and the inconsistent volume of the whole album.
Thanks for supporting my music everyone - I hope you enjoy Melancholy Frog:-)
**NOTE: special bonus for long-time fans who own an old copy of this album: for $2 plus the cost of shipping, I'd love to send you an album-sized sticker with a free download code of this album included. please email me at email@example.com if you're interested. (to new fans: you can also email me to buy a sticker with a download code for $12 plus shipping)

Thanks to Peter Andreadis for his incredible ear for mastering, Zach Finer & Michael Teach (my super-supporters!) and all the generous supporters of the restored version of this album (Quinny, Adam, Carl, Alaina, Kathryn, Becky, Jessi, Paul, Chris, Tracey, Vicki) . Without all of you, this album would have remained in my private little vault. I greatly appreciate your support and encouragement!
Special thanks to everyone at Gallery Cabaret & The Orphanage, especially Garrett Lane, Nancy Connolly, David Medina, Spoon, Adam Maljan & other engineers, both for recording me & for helping me find myself as a songwriter and performer. Your support, encouragement, and regular booking in those early years were invaluable to my development.
Very special thanks to all my earliest fans, friends, and family (including those listed above) who supported me when I was still so timid about my sound and style. Including but certainly not limited to Elisabeth, Krystee, Steve, Rachel, Stevie, Nick, Stephanie, Jamison, Steve, Jane, Val, Liz & Joseph, Matt & Andrea, Annie & Ben, Garrett & Nancy, Kenny, Tressa, Johnny, Jamie, Ethan Stoller & Rachel Tappan, Diana Lawrence, Alyssa Lowry & her Madison friends, Dave & Chris, Ryan & Kathryn, Megan, Jessi, Mandi, Beth, Tyler, Anne, Becky, and the LU girls, Sue Fink, Steve Joyner, Jeanne Arrigo, everyone from First Friday at Old Town School, Bob Ball, Steve Alspach & Berry Church, Tom & Cory, Tim Sandusky and everyone associated with Were the World Mine , everyone at Anodyne, Riverview, Acadia, and other Minneapolis venues and staff, Dunn Bros in Dallas TX, Chicago venues that are welcoming and encouraging to emerging songwriters (too many to mention), all other songwriters I crossed paths with who provided encouragement and camaraderie, Jillian Erickson, Michelle Power, and everyone at Beast Women, Kelsie Huff & The Kates, Thymme Jones & Cheer Accident, 50 Songs in 90 Days & everyone at FAWM.org, Richard Ballard at the Book Nook in MI, Richard Milne & Local Anesthetic on WXRT, Pete Wolf, Kat Fitzgerald, everyone at The Factory Theater, and everyone who ever signed my mailing list and offered kind words and support over email and at live shows.
Last of all, and certainly not least, thanks a million times over to my husband, Ray Brazaski. You have been the best thing I could ever imagine for my life - your faith in the artistic process, and allowing it in others, no matter how personal/strange/honest/exposing, is the reason I am able to exist as a songwriter & still have a family. I have never known anyone who has supported all my creative impulses, without criticism or unsolicited critique, as much as you. You are the reason I believe in breaking the mold if the mold doesn't fit, and creating personal comfy molds that aren't straitjackets. Thank you from the spelunkable depths of my heart.
