About
Melissa Ellis possesses a voice and style that is unmatched by any other. A vocal power that packs a serious punch, add in her opulent tone and texture reminiscent of jazz's golden age, her distinctive raw bluesy growl, and emotion-driven delivery, she has concocted an unforgettable signature blend of blues, jazz, and blue-eyed soul. Many have referred to her sound as the marriage of 2 classic queens, Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald, with a hint of modern talent's, Brandi Carlile, Norah Jones, and Sarah Bareilles. Delivering high-energy vocal performances, concertgoers are left breathless and wanting more

Melissa's latest musical journey brings out the deep emotional sounds of blues and her training in jazz. Her repertoire includes her original songs mixed with re-imaginings of familiar classics that are presented in fresh new ways. Notably, in 2018 Melissa landed fantastic opportunities that included performing during Nashville's acclaimed CMAfest, her southern, soulful style among the sea of rising country twang, and a short tour in France and Belgium. In 2019 Melissa became a quarter finalist qualifier as a solo artist for the 36th International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN of 2020 representing East Tennessee, set to compete against over 200 of the world's top emerging blues artists.

Melissa is a great entertainer for any party or event you are having! I've hired her a couple times in the past at my coffee shop and I've NEVER been disappointed! This was the first I had hired her for a private party and everyone loved her! I highly recommend!
