Our thoughts about the song :

Even though it's hard to believe, "Far Away" is the debut single of Melanie Siegrist. Hard to believe because she sounds so mature, and it feels like she's been doing this for years. In the music industry, we always say that a song has all the potential to become a hit when a catchy chorus comes before 40 seconds. And it's the case, in this amazing track. Powerful vocals, incredibly catchy melody, and a high quality of production, due to Adam Thein. With sincere and heartfelt lyrics, a wonderful and fragile voice, Melanie convinced us when she started to sing after a short intro. When the chorus comes, you only have one thought: WOW. A very promising start, and we can not wait to hear the next tracks from this young and talented artist. And of course, you will now hear this amazing track on the Indie Music Radio. Also included in our "Indie Pop Anthems" playlist. You can find this playlist on: Spotify / Soundcloud

Melanie Siegrist's point of view :

I wrote this song with two of my favorite musicians/friends (Bird and Byron) in a tiny LA apartment after moving here last year. We had all recently made the trek across the country and are learning how to balance working full time, while pursuing our love of music and betting the out odds on making into a career. After completing an acoustic version of the song, I decided direct message one of my favorite producers (Adam Thein) who had recently completed Djo's (Joe Keery of 'Stranger Things') debut album which I had been listening to on repeat. I knew it was a long shot since I had no connections with Adam and had never met him, but he was incredibly gracious and took on the project. Over the next few months he transformed the track into more than I had envisioned and I am so excited to be able to share it!
