Melissa Etheridge The Medicine Show Limited Vinyl LP


With 2 Grammy Awards, an Oscar, several platinum & multi-platinum albums, plus a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to her name, it’s safe to say that Melissa Etheridge is worthy of the term ‘icon’ – especially, as she’s been consistently open, active and bold when it comes to issues pertinent to both lifestyle and the environment.

The Medicine Show deals with universal themes of renewal, reconciliation, reckoning, compassion and, most profoundly, healing. Through the songs she processed the deep fears and hurting she saw in the nation on collective and personal levels; “Shaking” about national anxiety, “Here Comes the Pain,” personalizing the opioid crisis, the unifying “Human Chain” about the hope for healing, and the rocking, anthemic “Love Will Live.”
More highlights include the album-closer, “Last Hello” drawing on the incredible strengths and courage shown by the survivors of the Parkland school shootings, and the infectious “Wild and Lonely,” exploring themes of her past with a new perspective.

Simply, this is an artist where music & message are tightly bound together, and that very much holds true for ‘The Medicine Show’, which comes out all guns blazin’ with its stomping title track. If you’re a fan of Melissa’s earlier releases, then this latest outing – produced by songwriter & guitarist John Shanks, also a touring member of Bon Jovi’s band – will squarely hit the spot, being wall-to-wall with emotive, finely-crafted songs plus a level of energy that shows a respected, influential musician fully fired-up and ready to embark on a new phase in their career.
Just what the doctor ordered.
