ACCIDENTAL MELODY is the fourth album Singer and Songwriter JOANIE PALLATTO has recorded with all original music on Southport Records. The album presents 13 original tunes composed by Pallatto with five tracks co-written by her husband BRADLEY PARKER-SPARROW and “You Think You Know” with modern jazz guitar virtuoso FAREED HAQUE. “Accidental Melody” features some of Chicago’s finest musicians, including JOHN CHRISTENSEN (acoustic bass), ERIC HINES (percussion), JUAN PASTOR (cajon and percussion), BRADLEY PARKER-SPARROW (piano), and FAREED HAQUE.

Pallatto and Haque co-produced “Accidental Melody.” Pallatto says “I wrote the song ‘A Shooting Star’ for Fareed, to show my deepest love and respect for his musicality. His perspective and opinions about the arrangements and the flow of the music is always spot on. We have recorded together for the past 30 years. Together, we agreed that the material on this album called for a more intimate feel, so we tracked the songs with mostly acoustic instrumentation. Fareed put together a perfect band, with John, Eric, and Juan, all super musicians that I performed with for the first time.”
