  • Merissa Wilson
    She recalls winter nights spent singing any song she could think of as she walked up and down the aisles of the barn to keep warm while she awaited lambing sheep to give birth She also composed her own song a capella one summer while spending hours changing irrigation dams in the fields where her family pastured their sheep The words and music for that song have long since been forgotten but they were a fore shadow of things to come In addition to music Merissa was cultivating a connection to the land in her younger years Annual packtrips into the mountains with her family summers at Teton Science School counting eagles on the South Fork climbing the Grand Teton at age 17 with her father and her own special spot up Teton Canyon all helped her realize what an exceptional place she grew up in At college Merissa chose to study Conservation Biology recognizing the importance of preserving places like those she came from In her final semester in school she decided to take a guitar class not knowing how passionate this hobby would soon become for her For several years she was content to play cover songs but leave it to a break up to push the emotions right out of her heart and into the lyrics and music of her first hit I Was Happy Her second song Come Home soon followed describing a love affair that she keeps coming back to that her audience learns in the end is her love for the Teton mountains and not the man they assume at the beginning With time many other songs followed and she rarely has an experience anymore that she doesn t think That would make a good song Compared to musical icons such as Joan Baez
