Melissa Lamm loves pop music. Although she is both a classically trained pianist and graduate of Carleton University’s Music program, Melissa’s passion lies in creating pop songs that resonate with listeners and keep them bopping all day long.
As a child growing up in Ottawa, ON, Melissa would spend hours learning to play her favorite songs on the piano by ear. “I literally learned new songs note by note,” says Melissa. “I’d have two pairs of headphones on, one connected to my keyboard and one to my walkman. I would pause and play the walkman every second or so until I could find the note on the keyboard.”
These days Melissa is writing, recording, and performing in Toronto, ON. With five singles under her belt (Got My Heart, Blessings, Over It, Arizona, and Leaving Soon), Melissa performs regularly around Toronto and live on her Twitch.tv channel for her growing international audience. She has graced Toronto’s legendary Rivoli stage, and her original music has been featured on popular music blogs like comeherefloyd, Wonky Sensitive, and on Ditto Music Spotify Playlists. Melissa has just wrapped her debut EP, which will be released in 2020.
