“During the early pandemic days when I lost all my work, I started composing jingles and theme songs for people,” explains Alex Lilly of how “Melinda,” from her new album Repetition Is A Sin (Oct. 21Release Me Records) came to be.
Melinda Sullivan is an incredible tap dancer living in Los Angeles with whom I’d performed a handful of times at a little jazz club called The GardeniaMelinda’s hubby contacted me about writing a jingle in her honor and I was delighted as I’ve always been slightly (healthily) obsessed with Melinda.
“I wanted a laidback feel for this song,” Lilly continues. “Almost like a bar band. James King from Fitz and The Tantrums is on sax going for that Bowie ‘Win’ effect and my best friend and favorite drummer, Barbara Gruska from Belle Brigade is on drums. Gabe Noel is nailing that vibe on bass.
“And of course, Melinda’s spirit of talent and hotness is all over the song. At first, I was worried that the lyrics came on too strong, but when you’re inspired, you’ve got to go for it!”
