Recreating the sound of their dad’s old band is what Brother and Sister is all about,” writes the Florida Times Union. 2022 also saw Melody has co-hosted the “Blue Jay Concert Series” in her hometown of Jacksonville, at the Blue Jay Listening Room. Guest artists have included guitar great Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi All Stars, The Black Crowes); Jimmy Hall, longtime vocalist/harpist of Southern Rock legends, Wet Willie; and recent Grammy nominee, the ‘Piana From Savannah,’ Victor Wainwright.
