If you're looking for a moody, soulful, slightly smokey-voiced contralto (with optional hints of playful quirkiness), then I'm your best choice.
I'm an experienced recording artist / live musician, and songwriter specializing in dynamic vocals.
I've been a featured vocalist in a Twilight Short Stories short film and in a CW show called "I Ship It".

It was great working with Melissa. Her vocals met my expectation—very high-quality vocal recording, fast response, and easy to communicate. I highly recommended her to new customers.
Melissa is an extremely talented and passionate singer. I've had a number of TV shows and short films that needed female vocals and Melissa always knocked them out of the park with little time to prepare and little material to practice with. I think on a number of projects, I just kind of wrote it on the spot and she made short work of it. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for soulful/folky vocals for their project. Thanks Melissa!
