MELYSSA LEE, who is both a vocalist and a composer, has just recently come out with her first song, which is named “Mona’s Song.”
Mona is the sort of person who has the ability to bring out the best in the people with whom she encounters because of the way she carries herself. When Mona’s health took an unexpected turn for the worse, Lee wrote this song for her as a gesture of sympathy for her predicament and as a means of reassuring her and others that, despite the apparent gravity of one’s predicament, there is always a window of opportunity to change one’s viewpoint and make the best of a challenging situation.
The lyrics that Melyssa Lee writes come straight from the heart, and as a consequence, her music has a richer tone that is influenced by the folk, Americana, and acoustic musical traditions. This time around, a guitar, drums, and a Dobro are providing the accompaniment for her song. Her one-of-a-kind vocal style borrows elements here and there from the work of other skilled musicians like KT Tunstall, Sarah McLachlan, and Ingrid Michaelson. Her vocal style is really unique.
Melyssa Lee, a singer-songwriter from Canada, often pulls inspiration for her songs from her own life and the things that she has been through. These songs and stories are emotionally powerful and were inspired by Lilith. By fusing delicate notes with force and emotion, her voice creates a unique take on the Canadiana folk style that is often associated with women. Her tone is entirely distinct from any other.
