Artist Biography

Melissa James 


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!

A six page feature in 1998 Black & White Magazine - "The Rock Album" led us into 1998 where a new look Melissa has re-surfaced; fresh attitude, a batch of self penned tunes and a leaning towards a spicy combination of pop, rock and soul. "BEAUTIFUL DAY" was written and produced by Melissa and Ashley Cadell (producer & writer for Kate Ceberano, Peter Andre and Swoop), a team which will continue to work on future releases.

As Melissa herself points out, "Nature gave me a voice with a five octave range, so it’s up to me to explore everything that I can do with it."
"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.
Melissa James is hungry for success. 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.

July 15, 2015: Pop artist Melissa James is making every possible move to establish her presence in global musical arena. With the release of her latest single ‘Like This Like That’ Melissa has taken yet another step to demonstrate her musical talent to the world. Moreover, with the launch of the song Melissa takes yet another step to prove that she is multi-talented and she has written as well as composed and produced the song on her own as well.

The tone and mood of the song is much similar to her previous song ‘Beautiful Day’ and is definitely an ideal song to be played for people who love to enjoy their life and live each day to their fullest. However, the theme behind her latest single is a little different from others.
 In ‘Like This Like That’ the theme of the song is centrally focused upon the pain when the person you love and have intense feelings of affection  and love that you have for someone, but unfortunately they take your feelings for granted and behave indifferently towards it. The song talks about the pain and feeling of rejection and insignificance that one has to go through because of this in a very groovy and up to beat manner which actually defines the core essence and pleasure that one experiences when listening to the song.
Since the past couple of songs Melissa has collaborated with Ashley Cadell when it comes to writing the lyrics of a song, however, in ‘Like This Like That’ Melissa has also taken her song writing skills to a whole new level by making sure that she writes the lyrics of the song herself. And as per the feedback that has been received so far, people already love her effort as well as the song. In their comments on YouTube people are appreciating the beat of the song, the lyrics as well as the overall music video presentation of the song. Eleven people have given the song thumbs up which means that it is going strong and will continue to do so.
