Biography:

Singer and guitarist Meliesa McDonell cut her teeth fronting an original rock band on the famed Hollywood Sunset Strip as a teenager in the late 80s. After a hiatus lasting much of the 90s, Liesa moved to San Diego and attended college as a Vocal Music major where she honed her 4-octave pipes into a formidable instrument, and ventured out as a solo singer/guitarist. She recorded a solo CD, became in demand as a session singer and voice teacher, fronted several local cover bands and two international acts. Upon joining the 5-piece start-up rock band Hitman Honey in July 2012, she met guitarist John Naylor, and the musical chemistry was immediately evident.

John picked up the guitar at the age of 8 and hasn't looked back! He started his professional music career just a few short years ago, as a songwriter/recordist, guitarist, and band leader/manager. Meeting Meliesa when Hitman Honey was formed was a godsend; the merger of driven musicians seeking to continuously 'expand' an already diverse repertoire, instruments played, and vocal heights reached!

The two formed Xspanse in order to explore what two strong and accomplished acoustic players with a world of influences between them could achieve. The rest, as they say, is history... or soon will be.

Meliesa has an amazing voice, and they were both super talented guitarists! They sang great music that everyone could enjoy and sing along to. We will definitely hire them again for another event!

Xspanse completely exceeded all expectations. I had seen videos and met them before, but the show they put on was beyond amazing. Meliesa has an unbelievable voice and John is one of the best guitar players I have ever seen. Their mix of music, along with their vocal harmonies were spot on and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Several of our friends and family will be hiring them in the future for their events. Thanks guys for making my birthday party spectacular!
