A singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. She became the highest Australian Dance Artist on the National Dance Aria Chart with her release of “Baby Come Back” awarding her a top #20 dance hit. This launched her career and was asked to open the show of 'Hey Hey I'ts Saturday' and tour the east coast of Australia doing meets and greets which landed her TV and radio interviews.
Since then, Melissa James has been busy writing, recording, and playing live. She co-wrote 'Beautiful Day' she was the home grown feature on the Pop fm radio station FOX fm.
Melissa made her mark on a burgeoning dance scene in 1995 with the infectious groove of her second single, "Baby Come Back".
This song earned Melissa a Top 20 Aria dance chart and subsequent national media exposure through high rotation air-play and an appearance on Channel 9’s Hey Hey It’s Saturday. A period of personal re-assessment saw Melissa close herself away whilst she continued to explore new musical terrain through song-writing, various session work and surrounding herself with some of the finest musicians in Australia. We just knew we hadn’t seen the last of Melissa James!
"BEAUTIFUL DAY" has all the hallmarks of a perfect pop song - catchy hooks that don’t leave your head, a sing-along chorus and a bright breezy attitude that feels just like summer.
The normally shy girl becomes a strutting, pouting entertainer in the true sense of the word! Melissa has the voice of a pop diva. Melissa James has written a joyous pop tune - ever so radio friendly - with lavish vocals and stripped back guitar. Melissa James is ready to take a chance on something fresh.
