Music for Man & Dog: "Reflection" by Melisa Kary

In 2000, Melisa Kary released her long overdo debut CD “To My Sister”, featuring "Love A Lifetime", "So Afraid", "Tell Me" and more. Stepping out as a solo artist lead to even more opportunities, including performing with Huey Lewis & The News in 2003 and establishing herself as both writer and producer.

And now… Melisa has released her latest CD “Reflection” with talented Co-Producer, Writer, and Guitarist Howard Hart (who just happens to be her husband). Featuring an exciting blend of both musical and lyrical invention - this is easily Melisa’s finest artistic statement to date. The music speaks, soars and draws the listener in more and more with every listen.

Standout tracks include “Reflection”, “Never Saw It Coming” and “Open Our Eyes”… But that’s only the start!
Melisa Kary hails from the San Francisco Bay Area and has been a professional vocalist since the age of 17. Her powerful and soulful voice has kept her busy in many Bay Area and Southern California recording studios. She has worked extensively as a lead and background vocalist for Whitney Houston, Patti LaBelle, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Brenda Russell, Peabo Bryson, James Brown, Clarence Clemmens, Todd Rundgren & Strokeland's "Kick It Up A Step" - a project by Doc Kupka and players of "Tower of Power", in which she sings the duet "Just As Long As We Have Each Other", with Mickey Thomas.

During a recording session at the Plant Studios in Sausalito, CA Melisa's voice caught the attention of 'Starship' as they were finishing up their latest release. This lead to 10 years of touring with the 80s hit makers and performing to hundreds of thousands, as both lead and background vocalist - and sharing the bill with Howie Mandel, Sam Kinison, Cheap Trick, Bonnie Raitt, Kansas and many more.
Voices of Rock was another memorable experience, when Melisa was featured with Mike Reno of Loverboy, singing the well known duet "Almost Paradise". She also had the honor of sharing the stage with one of her all time favorites; Bobby Kimball of Toto, Jimmy Jamison of Survivor and the late Benjamin Orr of The Cars.
