Merissa’s first album finally puts on record the song writing and emotion that have always been enjoyed live.   With ten original songs plus Bob Dylan and Sean Hayes covers, this is one CD you can listen to from beginning to end.  Gathering the help of many musicians, including Ben Winship, Michael Batdorf, Mary Schrum, the album contains delightful harmonies,  catchy lyrics, and heartfelt stories of life in the mountains, family, friends, and of course love.  The title cut croons of the ongoing dream for love, a dream she would trade her existing dream-like life for.  Fortunately, there is a happy ending to that story…a story that will be told on her second, upcoming album.
