The idea of recording and releasing personal, heart on her sleeve songs–and secular music in general—would have been unthinkable for indie pop singer-songwriter Melanie Rogers just a few years ago. Until 2019, her life trajectory and career goals were all within the church context and Contemporary Christian Music industry. “I had this deep rooted belief that if I were to pursue my own personal musical endeavors that I would be dishonoring God, and that the only way to express my creativity was through leading worship or writing worship songs.” “Even while I was playing worship music in public, my own songwriting was the way I processed my life experiences and private emotions,” she says. After a bitter experience within the church, she began to rethink her goals in music, reassess her life path and even question her faith itself. Although she has pivoted away from the Christian church world, Melanie is still a very spiritual soul, and is enjoying the freedom of creating the music she wants to make for the first time in her life.“I love the reality that for the first time I am giving myself permission to write and produce whatever I want, especially breaking out of my earlier belief that the only songs I should be writing are about either God or a future husband. I have very big dreams and the foundation of those is the opportunity to write about anything and everything and share my heart with people like never before.”
