Melissa Phillips
Melissa Phillips Yearning vocals soaring high above heartfelt lyrics and a straightforward Americana/folk guitar accompaniment, Melissa Phillips’ tracks run the gamut of emotions. She is a classic storyteller, taking us from bittersweet desire to the sun-dappled summer days of her childhood. This wonderful up and coming singer-songwriter from the San Francisco Bay Area ably turns life’s experiences into personal vignettes. The lyrics betray that she’s lived some life and got roughed up a bit, but her voice always remains hopeful. It’s that sonic glimmer of hope in songs like “So Young” that keep me rooting for Melissa to succeed, and looking forward to more of her music.
