With an organic brand of pop and soul, singer-songwriter Melissa Manchester has won over audiences for four decades. Her hit records—ranging from the romantic sway of "Midnight Blue" to the power-ballad "Don't Cry Out Loud" and the reflective "Through the Eyes of Love"; have not only garnered awards, but have also paved the way for other singer-songwriters shooting from the heart. The new collection, Playlist, gathers 14 recordings from various stages of the artist's wide-ranging career. She talks with Justin Kantor about the stories behind the songs, and how she's continuing to use her gifts. Read the interview on BlogCritics.org.
