Melissa Bel’s “Ever After” is an absolute fairy tale. “Look at us building a life,” she sings. Guitar ebbs and flows, trickling like a creek in the woods. Despite naysayers, Bel rolled the dice and took a gamble on love. And things appear as grand as they could possibly be. “Five years down the road, and we’re golden,” she adds, after revealing the proposal occurred the night she and her beau first met. It might seem a hasty decision on paper, yet the love they feel, as swelling in the song, is unmistakable. If anything, “Ever After” is a heartwarming experience, featuring Bel’s finest vocal to date.
