Beyond The Frame is a warm introduction to the soaring music and enquiring mind of Melissa Hubert. From the emotional intensity and beauty of Voice In The Choir, to the comic sideways perspective of Mr Maker, the album is bursting with melodic and lyrical gems. Melissa’s voice has a classical purity and range combined with the pop sensibilities and phrasing of a seasoned contemporary artist. With resourceful production from Phatfish keyboard man and producer Mike Sandeman, each song shines. The depth and breadth of the song-writing belie Melissa’s youth; at twenty-one years old she was just starting her musical journey, and this début is a delightful jumping-off point.
