Philadelphia born and raised, Melissa T knows the meaning of soul, rhythm, and blues. Philly soul is so intricately woven into every melody and crystal clear note she sings that upon hearing the first few words vibrate from her vocal chords, you have no other choice but to pause and pay attention. As you listen closely, you will find that within those passionate lyrics, Melissa T is singing about the gospel of Jesus. Inspired by Jazz, Hip Hop, Gospel, and Folk music, Melissa aims to combine these influences into a modern fusion that journeys the listener through some of life’s joys, pains, mysteries and musings.
Melissa’s debut EP, Where Is The Love? will be released on August 11, 2016 via most digital outlets (iTunes, Soundcloud, Tidal, Spotify, Google Play) .

Thus far in her career, Melissa has collaborated with a diverse group of artists including Shai Linne, Stephen the Levite, Dave Hackley, B3ar Fruit, Leah Smith and numerous Live events such as the Willingboro Jazz Festival and World Cafe Live to name a few.
