Melissa Page has composed an extensive repertoire of songs in the genres of pop, rock, soul, blues, jazz, dance and folk. Three of the songs on the 'Tangerine Love' CD won Honorable Mentions in the Billboard World Song Contest in the categories of Pop, Dance and Jazz. The phrase "Tangerine Love" comes from the single Crayons, which is featured twice on the "Tangerine Love" CD in two very different styles. Crayons '00 attracted a lot of attention upon it's release in 2000. On the Australian music website Mp3.com.au, Crayons sat at number one on the Rock/Pop Charts for several weeks. The "Tangerine Love" CD is compilation of original songs that were recorded over a seven year period. The earliest tracks were recorded in 1998 in Melissa's hometown of Melbourne Australia with her close friend from university, singer-songwriter and filmmaker Sophie Raymond, and a traveling Canadian boy they met in Byron Bay who turned out to be singer-songwriter Shane Anthony (The Breath Records). Melissa had won first prize in the 1998 North Melbourne Street Fair Talent Contest - the prize was one day of studio recording time at the Elwood Lab. They recorded Ocean Man (track 7), Moon Lovin' (track 5) and Crayons '98 (track 6) with Melissa and Sophie on vocals, Shane & Sophie on guitars, Tamara Murphy on upright bass and Amy Valent on congas. Towards the end of 1999, Melissa recorded four more tracks, this time with American producer Joey Muller in the Northern Californian town of San Rafael, where Melissa resided at the time. That year, for her birthday, Melissa hosted "The Tangerine Love Party" to raise funds for these recordings. The songs chosen were Green On Earth (track 3), Rock Me (track 9), I'm A Superstar (track 8) and a new version of Crayons (track 11) which included Cassidy Wollenberg on didgeridoo. Melissa independently released these four tracks in Australia and the UK on a self-titled EP, which she took on tour for the two years that followed. During her time in London in 2001, Melissa wrote Now That You're Here (track 12), which she recorded about 18 months later back in San Rafael with Joey Muller, featuring Terren Trousset on guitar. Around the same time, Melissa recorded Dry Your Eyes (track 4) in San Diego with Terren, featuring Neil McPherson from the popular San Diegan funk band Tubby on keyboards. Motorcycle Ride (track 10) was recorded in the same San Diego studio and was selected for the "Tangerine Love" CD from a full catalog of unreleased Melissa Page "single-takes", originally intended only for personal demo usage. Where I Belong (track 2) and Find Me (track 1) were recorded a year apart in 2003 and 2004 respectively, with Joey Muller in San Anselmo, Northern California. Melissa formed her own independent record label in 2005 called GOE Records and 'Tangerine Love' is the first release under this label. GOE stands for "Green On Earth", based on the Green On Earth single (track 3). The 'Tangerine Love' CD packaging is hand made from recycled paper materials. Reviews...
