Music is everything to me.
Every day, I wake up with a song in my head, a beat in my heart, and a melody on my tongue. Through music, I rejoice, grieve, heal, and find humor. 

I don't have a record label, management company, or agent.

I don't need them - because I have you. My fans.

Your support sustains my mission to make the best music possible for you to enjoy.

If you would like to continue on this journey with me and help me to keep making meaningful music, check out my CDs, or download my digital music on Bandcamp.

Thank you!   xoxo Melissa
