Pop music has always been Melissa Lamm’s passion. As a child growing up in Ottawa, Ontario, Melissa would spend hours learning to play her favorite songs on the piano by ear.
“I literally learned new songs note by note,” says Melissa. “I’d have two pairs of headphones on, one connected to my keyboard and one to my walkman. I would pause and play the walkman every second or so until I could find the note on the keyboard.”
At 22 years old, Melissa graduated from Carleton University and moved to the big city of Toronto to explore the city’s music scene. She began producing her own tracks, and released her self-produced singles “Blessings” and “Over It” in 2017. Her songs take influence from some of her favourite artists, including Zedd, Lights, and John Mayer. Seeking to expand her pop sound, Melissa brought Toronto producer AlterEgo onboard to produce “Arizona,” which was released in 2018.
These days, Melissa has been working hard in the studio and performing around Toronto. She recently graced Toronto’s legendary Rivoli stage, was featured on Ditto Music’s Spotify playlists, and was included in Shifter Magazine’s Creator series. Melissa is a member of Twitch.tv’s Affiliate program, where she frequently performs online for a growing international audience. Listeners can expect new music from Melissa in early 2019.
