MP3 GERTRUDE featuring Melissa Ziemer - Gertrude

"Fun, yet very soulful pop/rock, with heartfelt and melodic lyrics - and Melissa Ziemer is one of the most passionate female vocalists I''ve heard in a while." https://www.tradebit.comos IL Entertainer HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

11 MP3 Songs
POP: California Pop, ROCK: Folk Rock


"The CD is one of those extremely rare finds where all tracks are very listenable. There is a diversity across the 11 tracks, a broad and very hip offering...A MUST BUY." - Jack "Papa" Baer, https://www.tradebit.com

"AIR rocks hard" - Chicago Arts and Entertainment

"DO WHAT YOU WANT" is a pop song with a hint of country, and a positive message summed up in the chorus "Do what you really believe / ''Cause you are the only thing." - John Abbott, Diversity

"Fun, yet very soulful pop/rock..."LIAR", "IN THE GARDEN" and "TRAGICALLY UNREAL" illustrate this beautifully. The two unquestionable gems of this disc, however, are the opening track "DRIFTIN'' NOWHERE," about "...one lousy singer, singing one lousy song," containing all the longing and heartache that every great pop song should have, and the torchy little number "PLASTIC MONKEYS," which almost sounds like an old 78 someone pulled out of a time capsule from the 1940s." - Dean Ramos, Illinois Entertainer

"I was truly surprised at the overall live sound and even more impressed by the CD. The lyrical content, melodic style and overall mesh of sound is something I could listen to over and over." - Ibiyinka Aboyade-Cole, https://www.tradebit.com

PRESS RE: Melissa Ziemer ~

"Ziemer stands poised to take on the music scene...(and the world), armed with power vocals and natural songwriting ability". Chicago Arts & Entertainment

"That such a phenomenally powerful voice can possibly come from such a small frame surely defies the laws of nature?" Bristol Evening Post, UK

"The evening climaxed with a performance from Melissa Ziemer....the young diva from Chicago is already a veteran of the soul scene there and her set of catchy pop gems rounded off things nicely." Wiltshire Times, UK

"The evening kicked off with Melissa Rose Ziemer, her diminutive figure belying the strength and emotion of her powerful and passionate voice. Her first song was "Driftin'' Nowhere", but this certainly wasn''t where the night was going as her set of country rock transported us to the land of Stars and Stripes." Western Telegraph, Narbeth UK

"Melissa Ziemer is one of those rare performers who sells every song. Not content to pose and sing, she belts it out and digs down deep to find the heart of the song." Chicago Arts & Entertainment

"Sometimes all you need is a girl and a guitar. Then again, sometimes the girl would rather be a band. In Melissa Ziemer''s case, both work - she knows how to work an audience and has charm to spare." UR Chicago

"When Melissa Ziemer sings, people stop and listen." Chicago Arts & Entertainment

"She is only slight, but her voice is deep and powerful with a delightful hint of southern twang. She''s quite a talent as a songwriter as well as a singer." Bristol Evening Post, UK

"Ziemer''s voice moves comfortably between old school country music (think Loretta Lynn) and aggressive grrrl-rock (think Melissa Etheridge)." Paul Barille, The Liberty Southtown

"Melissa Ziemer is one of the most passionate female vocalists I''ve heard in a while." Dean Ramos, Illinois Entertainer

"Melissa Ziemer''s powerful lungs have already earned her comparisons to such female singers as Sheryl Crow and Janis Joplin, yet she has enough talent that she deserves recognition on her own." Eric Schelkopf, Kane County Chronicle

"Ziemer''s voice is caramel smooth." John Abbott, Diversity
