Bio

Out of the tradition of artists like Linda Ronstadt and Sheryl Crow, comes singer/songwriter, and Los Angeles native Melissa Carter. Melissa’s Country kissed Americana Rock represents the next generation of California Country Rockers, adding some Pop and Soul elements to create a fresh, current sound. Her lush flavorful vocals lay nestled in smart arrangements and catchy hooks, giving her songs a definite “stick in your head” quality. Vocally, she has drawn comparisons to other powerhouse singers like Pink, Grace Potter, and Carrie Underwood. Growing up in a musical family, Melissa was exposed from a very early age to everything from Otis Redding to The Beatles to Shania Twain. This eclectic blend has become a part of Melissa’s unique sound.

After attracting the attention of veteran producer Steve Churchyard through her youtube series, The Bathroom Sessions in 2017, Melissa worked with Steve on her debut EP, Edge of the Sun. Since that release, and through 2019, Melissa continued to release new singles. Her song I’ve Got a Secret garnered over 100K Spotify streams.

Melissa continues to perform in Venues from LA to Nashville, and has plans to release her first full length LP in 2020.

What People Are Saying:

York Calling UK:

“A Night Like This is the debut single from singer-songwriter Melissa Gottlieb, and it’s very impressive for a first release, putting her way ahead of many a more experienced musician from that genre. . . It makes for a great mix, and it also helps that the chorus is so incredibly catchy, to the point that we just can’t stop listening to it! Check out what should be the future of pop music below:”

Wiley Koepp/Coyote Music, Austin, TX:

“A Night Like This” embodies stellar production value. — it’s got a full-bodied Nashville- country sound. For that reason, it’s got the potential to break into country radio and spread into fans’ playlists. Melissa’s got a crystalline voice and support that could take her to the top, possessing as much talent as anyone already there.”

Jerry Doby/The Hype Magazine:

“Great pure voice and arrangement. Natural use of timbre and intonation melded well with the sonics.”

Roger Jansen:

“Influenced by Carrie Underwood, Janis Joplin and Sheryl Crow, she forged a fresh sound blending country music with pop and rock. With an Americana core, enriched with pop elements and a country-dipped chorus, her new single is a multi-layered rollercoaster.”
