Melissa Etheridge: “Falling Up” Performance

The new release 4th Street Feeling debuted on September 4 2012. It’s named after 4th Street, a popular teen hangout spot in Melissa’s hometown of Leavenworth, Kansas, and that nostalgia reflects the album’s themes and inspiration.

This makes the outspoken rocker’s 14th release since her 1990 debut, and she shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. She won an Oscar in 2007 for best original song when she contributed “I Need To Wake Up” for the documentary An Inconvenient Truth.


Another potential project on the horizon for Etheridge is a Broadway musical she is developing with reported girlfriend and Nurse Jackie co-creator Linda Wallem, though no firm details have been announced about the musical.
