Melissa Mathes who hails from nashville has been dubbed by some as a female version of Tom Petty”. From an early age of 11, Melissa was busy preparing to make her mark as she appeared on Ed McMahonâ€™s â€œStar Search.â€ She has since sang the National Anthem for former President Bill Clinton, compared high notes with Mariah Carey, and performed along side such artists as John Denver, Ray Charles, Sheryl Crow, Cheap Trick and The Dixie Chicks.
Melissa Mathes has already collaborated with some of the best in the business, including Danny Wilde (The Rembrandts), Sammy Llanas (The BoDeans), Joe Puerta (Bruce Hornsby, Ambrosia), The Warren Brothers (RCA), Victor Delorenzo (Violent Femmes), Joe Pisapia (Guster), John Deaderick (Patty Griffin) and Daniel Tashian (The Bees) to name a few.
When asked about the future, Melissa stated, “Music has become something spiritual to me. It’s my way to give myself. I want to practice on it, expand on it, explore through it, and share it, to move people. That is my art.”
