Melissa-Marie attributes her first musical inspiration to Judy Garland, who became a catalyst for her life-long singing journey.
For Melissa-Marie, Garland represents an expression of raw emotional sincerity and impeccable vocal delivery – as though with every performance, she was intimately conversing with the audience with great vulnerability. Melissa-Marie aspires to honour this standard in her performances.
With the world-class accompaniment of Stu Harrison (piano) and Ross MacIntyre (bass), the trio is prepared to showcase the music of Garland to its fullest. Having great success with the Garland showcase this spring, Melissa-Marie seeks to introduce it to new audiences everywhere.
