After releasing her first solo CD, Melissa had the opportunity to sing at Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival in the Summer of 2006 as well as the Beaches Parti Gras Festival, and since then has been immersing herself in the Toronto music scene. She has been playing regularly at venues such as “Trane Studios” “Ten Feet Tall”, “Jacobs & Co., “Annabella Lounge”, and most recently, “Statlers on Church”.
