ABOUT MELISSA:

Toronto based singer and songwriter Melissa Lauren has smoothly made the transition from veteran swing “crooness” to songwriter. The music - her own brand of old school jazz, Do-wap and blues mixed with Indie pop inflections and sounds; very much a product of her early musical training meeting her adult musical encounters.

As a teen, Melissa got a strong start touring and performing across North America with The Toronto All Star Big Band. She spent her early adulthood finding her sound and paving her way in the Canadian music scene as a songwriter, performer, and musical director. Melissa has performed at local and international music festivals and series, including the Halifax Jazz Festival, Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival, Beaches International Jazz Festival, Markham Jazz Festival and Oakville International Jazz Festival as well as Canadian Music Week, North By North East Festival, Kensington Market Jazz Festival, Sudbury Jazz Fastival, Toronto Harbourfront Music Series, the Home Smith jazz series, and has had residencies in Toronto at places such as the Rex and the Cameron House. Summer of 2018 saw her a nomination for best artist at the Halifax International Jazz Festival’s Stingray Music Competition. While touring Canada has become a constant in her touring life, Melissa was thrilled to debut in Europe this Spring with shows in Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands and Poland.

Melissa's sophomore album, "Your Mess" was released to great charting and review across Canada. The first single released in Canada, “Send Them Away,” was song of the week on CBC radio in Toronto, and nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award.

In addition to her own music, Melissa has been lending her voice to studio work in the electronic music scene. She has sung on five of producer/writer Hibernate’s recently released tracks, one of which was the opening track one of seminal pioneer trance DJ Paul Oakenfold’s compilation albums, released under Perfecto Records.
