“Powerful voice and stage presence”
Gifted with an exceptionally powerful voice and boundless energy, singer-songwriter Melissa Sanley thrills audiences with emotional intensity and uplifting messages, in a style she calls Positive Pop.
Melissa’s talents have attracted strong notice from the public, critics and the international press in New York, London and Japan. She currently travels between Europe and New York — the city that inspires much of her material. Among other successes, the video of Melissa’s first single, “My Time”, was shot in Times Square, and “We Are the Future” was filmed in Central Park. Melissa followed up these early releases with her unstoppable album, “The Best In Us”.
Finally now Melissa celebrates the launch of her impressive studio album, “Ladylight” — 11 powerful songs based on true stories, lived by the artist and captured with energy and sensitivity.
Melissa’s creative and versatile nature has led the New York press to describe her as the “Queen of Arts.” Others publications have praised her this way: “Melissa Sanley conquers the audience,” “Powerful voice with heart” and “Fascinating voice, and powerful stage presence.”
Melissa Sanley is currently hard at work on many other projects, including her new stage show, “Song of My Soul.” The first preview of the concert series in London quickly sold out. In addition to composing her own songs with her NYC and European crew, Melissa Sanley has performed and collaborated with internationally renowned artists, including two co-writes with 3-time Grammy winner Nile Rodgers (CHIC).
Melissa also dedicates her talents to raising awareness for charitable foundations and associations. “Staying true to my principles, working towards a well-defined goal and giving to others are the foundation of life.”
