About Melissa Etheridge:

Melissa Etheridge has been a core Island Records artist since the release of her critically-acclaimed eponymous RIAA double-platinum debut album. For several years, Melissa's popularity built around such memorable songs as "Bring Me Some Water" (from her debut), "No Souvenirs" (from Brave And Crazy) and "Ain't It Heavy" (from Never Enough), for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal.

Melissa hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album the six-times platinum Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits "I'm the Only One" and "Come to My Window. The album went six times platinum and spent more than two and a half years on the album chart. Her highest charting album to date, Your Little Secret (#6 on the Billboard Top 200), included the hit single, "I Want to Come Over." Her astounding success led Etheridge to receive the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards, two Grammy awards, and the Academy Award® in 2007 for her song "I Need To Wake Up." In 2011, Melissa made her Broadway debut as St. Jimmy in Green Day's rock opera, American Idiot, and received her Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 4th Street Feeling will be Melissa's 12th studio album for Island Records.
