MeloDrama / "Invisible Curtain"

. . . . . Hello and thanks for visiting our website.
. . . . . My name is Michael Hudson and together
. . . . . with my son David, we are "MeloDrama".
. . . . . We chose "MeloDrama" because we wanted
. . . . . . . . . a meaningful name that had a direct
. . . . . . . . . . . correlation to words and music.

. . . . . . . . Melodrama is a term for a script that
. . . . . . . is acted out while being accompanied by
. . . . . . . . . . . . . mood setting music.
. . . . . . . . In old fashioned black and white
. . . . . . movies a hero would be heralded with
. . . . . . trumpets while a villain was vilified by
. . . . . . . . . . an ominous sounding organ.

. . . . . I had been in a couple of bands but took a
. . . . . hiatus after David was born and retired my
. . . . . guitar to under my bed while thinking that
. . . . . my musical endeavors were now behind me.

. . . . . . I bought David a guitar with hopes that he
. . . . . . . would become interested but the Power
. . . . . . . Rangers won over instead. Eventually he
. . . . . . began to play it and agreed to take lessons.
. . . . . . Surprisingly, he stuck with it and in time I
. . . . . . . . noticed how well he was progressing.

. . . . . In seizing the opportunity, I yanked my guitar
. . . . . case from under my bed and blew off about
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . ten years of dust.

. . . . . . . . . . We were off to see the Wizard!

. . . . . As our song catalog grew, we decided to get
. . . . . . . more instruments and equipment as to
. . . . . expand our accompanyment and recording
. . . . . . techniques. This inadvertently led to the
. . . . . . . making of our CD, "Invisible Curtain".

. . . . . David's innate talent has allowed him to
. . . . . broaden his skills into playing bass, piano
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . and drums.


. . . . . Besides playing acoustic guitar, I write most
. . . . . of the lyrics which many times are parables
. . . . . . of my sentiments of what happens as we
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . live out our lives.

. . . . . After a little more than a year and recording
. . . . . . more songs than can fit onto a CD, it was
. . . . . . . . time to begin the mastering process.

. . . . . . . . In May, 2009 while in a music store
. . . . . we met up with Mark Clese, my friend and
. . . . . former band mate from fifteen years earlier.
. . . . . We invited him over to hear the songs. After
. . . . . . . . listening Mark told us that he had a
. . . . . . . mastering studio and offered to do the
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . mastering for us.

. . . . . When things like this happen as did so many
. . . . . strange coincidences relating to this project,
. . . . . . . I'm convinced that there's more going on
. . . . . . . . than what meets the eye, a bigger plan,
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . a higher power...

. . . . . During the mastering process Mark also
. . . . . . became integral in the production of
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . "Invisible Curtain".

. . . . . In summing things up, I'm not going to waste
. . . . . . . your time with a list of who's who, past
. . . . . accomplishments or profess our greatness.
. . . . . . . Our music wouldn't be any better for it.

. . . . . . . . . As musicians try to figure out
. . . . . . . . . . . how to attract an audience,
. . . . . . . . . well, here I am doing the same.
. . . . . . Until I do, I guess that my best shot is
. . . . . . . . in simply asking that you please
. . . . . . . . . . . . . lend us an ear and
. . . . . . . . . let our songs do the talking.

. . . . . . . . The songs will speak the truth!

. . . . . . Thanks again for your consideration!

. . . . . . . . . . Mike & Dave (MeloDrama)
