Melissa is a 29 year old singer/songwriter from Oregon. She's a small town girl, born and raised in Southern Illinois until the tender age of twelve when her and her family moved out to the west coast and settled in Oregon. It was at this age that Melissa began to play guitar, and only a few years later at age 14 she began writing her first songs.
Today Melissa continues to enjoy writing and playing music as she steadily crafts her style of playing. Always writing from personal experiences she continually opens up her heart and pours it out on pen and paper. Over the years she has picked up an interest in learning new instruments including; drums, piano, bass guitar, and irish whistle, but her first love is and always will be sitting down with an acoustic guitar and writing songs.
