Q&A WITH... MELLISSA
My friends call me Missy, my Dad calls me Charlie Brown/Missy and my brother calls me Missy Joe
POSITION IN THE BAND
Maton Guitars, Shure Mics.
When I was about 10 years old I used to play guitar and sing songs with my dad. From the Beatles, Del Shannon, The Eagles and Creedence Clearwater Revival to name a few. My father was a huge influence for me becoming an artist. I've always wanted to be a performer ever since I was young.
Living in a small country town I made the natural progression to country music. One of my first country influences would have to be Shania Twain. She reinvented country music to be modern and fun! I'm a huge fan of Faith Hill, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Lady A, Keith Urban. Also outside of country I am drawn to Kelly Clarkson, Maroon 5, Foo Fighters and Fleetwood Mac.
HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU STARTED LEARNING MUSIC?
I started playing guitar at 10 years old then singing followed a year or so later.
MOST MEMORABLE LIVE SHOWS
Lady A, Kelly Clarkson, Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Foo Fighters, The Dave Matthews Band, Queens of the Stone Age.
MOST MEMORABLE MUSICAL MOMENT
My most memorable moment would have to be our album launch. It was something I always dreamed of doing, making music. I now get to share my thoughts and feelings whether they be good or bad through music and it can reach the rest of the world!
FAVOURITE MUSICAL QUOTE
"Music does a lot of things for a lot of people. It's transporting, for sure. It can take you right back, years back, to the very moment certain things happened in your life. It's uplifting, it's encouraging, it's strengthening."
