Imagine Miranda Lambert and Lynyrd Skynyrd living in a modern pop world: Sassy country, southern rock, & choruses so catchy they’re stuck in your head for days.
During that same year, Melissa recorded a Nashville produced, full-length album at Mainframe Recording Studio, featuring top of the line musicians such as Bobby Randall (founding member of CMA award winning group Sawyer Brown), Dink Cook (current bass player for Toby Keith), Mark Beckett (current drummer for Olivia Newton-John), Joe Spivey (current fiddle player of The Time Jumpers) & Mark Oliverius (former keyboardist for Lorrie Morgan).
Melissa returned to her home state at the beginning of 2018 for an album release concert where she sold out Kewadin Casino. Melissa also toured with the ACM award winning band Confederate Railroad 2017, performing for national fairs & festivals throughout the country. Her most memorable performance during that time was singing alongside country music legend Charlie Daniels at the Dallas Bull.

Melissa is currently working on a new album in Orlando, FL (to help fund Melissa’s new album click here). She performs 4+ nights a week and spends her “free time” reading books on the music business, writing songs, learning new cover songs & interacting with her fans on all social media platforms. She also enjoys running & spending time with her pet squirrel/baby son, Rocky. Melissa is self-managed and spends every minute of every day chasing her dreams of touring the world, performing in sold out stadiums & having her songs played in rotation on mainstream radio. Along with sharing her music world-wide, Melissa also wants to spread love & kindness across the planet and defines herself as a “hippie flower child”.
