Get acquainted with Matt Cusson, folks. The guy has a wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Cusson - I don’t know how accurate it is, though (haha!). But in short, super talented singer, songwriter, musician, and has worked/performed with Brian McKnight, Stevie Wonder, Javier Colon, and so on…and so on… and so on.

We’re planning on collaborating more in the near future - writing, singing duets, shows, etc. but thought this long-distance video collab would be a good way to start things off…and at the same time honor one of the greats in music.

Hope all of you enjoy. Love y’all tremendously! I mean it. -mp

Melissa Polinar - Meant to Be (Cover by @charissenicole)

Just felt like making a small audio track of me singing this song. Excuse me if I sound nasally, I’m still recovering from a cold/cough. I don’t post my singing on social networking too often so sorry in advance if it’s not as good as other artists out there lulz. 

ps. If you’re wondering where the previous audio post went, I deleted it because I preferred this song over the first one I posted up.

Enjoy!

So this is a clip of a song I wrote for Jeff Bernat’s upcoming record. He’s working on his version and entire record as we speak (or type). 

J. Cowell (Jeff’s producer) recorded keys and I just wrote on top of the track (lyrics and melody). It’s called "My Dear" and the lyrics you’re hearing…

cliche but I love you
so glad that I found you

when the days get long
I long to be right next to you
when nights are cold the thought of you
pulls me through
but right now, I’m just glad you’re here
I’m just glad you’re here, my dear
don’t ever leave my side… 

So there you go! Hope you get a little taste of it. :)

Melissa Polinar - Try

"There’s nothing, nothing I can do
To keep my heart away from you
I can’t help it, I can’t tell you how much I try
To get you off my mind
To help me move on and just live my life
I can’t help it, I can’t tell you how much I try
Cause whenever you’re near it’s love that I fear”

I think it’s been in my system to finish a song like this for a while now. I finished it in a smaller period of time compared to the usual. I wanted it to be simple but tells a story. And sure it’s only about 2+ minutes long but I’m already hearing it with an instrumental in the middle. Endless possibilities.

See The Stars
(polinar)

Love, don’t fight it
Give in to love
And love, don’t deny it
together the walls will come crashing down
to the ground
and finally see the stars

there’ll be moments
the blanket of night
will hide us in silence
but together we’ll spark
the light in our eyes
and take flight
and finally see the stars

and the longings of our hearts
will subside and rescue us from harm
when we’re almost drowning in the deep
and say that we’re done 

Love, don’t fight it
Give in to love
And love, don’t deny it
together the walls will come crashing down
to the ground
and finally see the stars

there’ll be moments
the blanket of night
will hide us in silence
but together we’ll spark 
the light in our eyes
and take flight
and finally see the stars

together the walls will come crashing down
to the ground
and finally see the stars
