Melissa Bel has been captivating audiences and listeners her whole life. As she explains, "My mom would say I started singing before I started talking. I remember being in daycare as a two year-old and singing for everybody. I have a vivid memory from age six of looking in the mirror and saying 'I'm going to be a singer.' I was just so sure that nothing else was going to happen."
Through her three albums thus far, Melissa has demonstrated her wide range – both in her ability to boldly master different genres, and with her larger-than-life voice. Each of these records received glowing reviews, and music critics and her fans now eagerly anticipate her next album, released in November 2016.
Melissa’s compelling musical evolution is paralleled by her own personal journey, both as a musician and a young woman carving a place for herself in the world. At only 26 years old, the Toronto-based musician now finds herself living and working in the United Kingdom, having made the bold decision to pull up her roots and relocate in order to live with her partner in Devon, England.
Melissa’s personal and musical journeys have been intensely informed by her maturity, sensitivity, and thoughtfulness – traits which have contributed both to her personal struggles and her creative inspiration. Having begun her journey in Toronto, established a reputation and a passionate fan base in Quebec, and found love in Las Vegas, Melissa is looking toward her future in the United Kingdom. She’s come a very long way, and she’s eager to keep going.
