Melissa Carper Unveils New Single “Ain’t A Day Goes By”

Today, singer/songwriter and upright bassist Melissa Carper has released “Ain’t A Day Goes By”, the lead single from her forthcoming album Ramblin’ Soul, due out on November 18th via Mae Music/Thirty Tigers.

Carper penned the track in 2014 after the death of her beloved dog, Betty. “This song is very emotional for me,” she reveals. “It was difficult to go through my Dad’s death, then my Mom’s death only a year later, and really, in a sense, losing my younger brother to severe mental health issues that have changed his personality completely. Betty’s death crushed me because she had been through it all with me. The grief just started pouring out at that point,” she continues. “I wrote ‘Ain’t A Day Goes By’ within a year of her death, but could not sing it without crying until recently, so I haven’t performed it much in my shows. Now, it gets its rightful debut on Ramblin’ Soul because it is a true soul song.”
