Hello! I'm Melissa

Hello! I'm Melissa, a Nashville-based

singer-songwriter. I got my musical start studying voice, percussion, and guitar in my hometown, Fenwick Island, DE. 

I played cover gigs on the East Coast in college and full-time  after earning an Applied Nutrition from University of Delaware.  An active, healthy lifestyle is something I am passionate about maintaining and sharing with others to this day! 


These days, in addition to freelancing as a songwriter, guitarist and vocalist for studio and demo work, I am enjoying the evolution of a couple music and healing-centered projects currently taking off in the

Nashville area;

Rhythm Bird Music &
