"Sit back and relax. UK talent at its best."

— global grooving.com reviewing 'Did He Say' Ep

"With an effortless, smooth vocal, this jazz meets showtime record contains an abundance of classy piano too.
'Who Knows' harks back to the heroines of 70s folk-pop whereas 'Say Hello' sounds more like a song from a jazzy-musical. 'Nothing Changes' has the flavour of an eighties throbber, albeit with an easy listening syncopated drum beat flowering things up.

The strangest element to Melissa's sound is that, while there's a lot going on, it's quite a quiet record. The vocal doesn't need to demonstrate a mass of projection and that wouldn't work for these songs anyway. It's all very neat and tidy and the songs are all the more classy for this unusual treatment.

This is one of those records that calls out for the word 'accomplished' and I'm not about to deny the request."

— The Mag (reviewing the Say Hello Ep)

"Cooly confident rhythms, crisp piano, cut glass- harmonies and a distinctive , free range vocal. Melissa's voice dances with the sweetness and maturity of Carole King or Joni Mitchell as she proves that power doesn't automatically equal volume. There's no denying this is effortlessly classy stuff.''.... For the full review visit http;//www.overplay.com"

— Overplay ( reviewing the 'Say Hello' EP)

"Nothing Changes by Melissa is one of those songs that you can play over and over again and never get tired of. It's almost like floating on clouds, or drifting along with the gentle currents of the sea. Set to a light Bossa Nova beat, it just sails along with the wind.very soothingly arranged, perfectly accented with Muse-like keyboard and beautifully sung by this multifaceted and wonderfully talented lass from Southampton, Hampshire, UK, and like her rather extensive song list reveals, her music covers a wide range, offering a potpourri of sounds and tracks ranging from Pop and Rock to laid back or serious Jazz and Country... Thanks for a very beautiful song, Melissa... It made for a very nice afternoon..."

"Every Sunday after 9pm, the Original Showcase has Fanpower, in which listeners, or fans of an artist, can request more plays of their favourite acts.
If success was based on the amount of requests we receive, then Southampton based Melissa would be top of the charts.
She consistently gets requests from all ages, genders and nationalities. And it is no surprise.
Her voice is excellent; her songs are about life and love, and the music is a mixture of laid-back jazz and country. She plays keyboard and flute, Dave accompanies her on guitar.
The requests arrive by text, email and telephone and its during the calls you can hear that Melissa's songs have tickled an emotional response with her fans.
" I write about what ever springs into my mind, or is triggered by events around me, even conversations on the bus"
There is nothing new in Melissa's approach to writing, but she definitely has something which links her music to the minds and hearts of the listener.
Thanks to the Internet this effect is being felt abroad with an appreciative following on the American country circuit and she is hoping to head out to the States; but the album comes first and that should be with us by the end of the year.
You can hear a track in this Sundays showcase on Original 106fm radio between 6 and 10pm. Or visit www.original106.com/showcase to download a sample."
