“A highly arranged approach to roots music…Cox sounds like a cross between Loreena McKennitt and Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick.” -Sing Out Magazine

“As a music promoter, I find Melissa Cox to be very talented. Love the music she makes!”
-Jeff Sumner, promoter and fan

“Wow! Powerful!” -88.5 FM WXPN, The Folk Show, Philadelphia

“Everything she does is on key. Very good voice and plays like a boss.” -Steve S., fan

When she was just 3 years old, Melissa started writing her own music by singing songs she made up into her Fisher Price tape recorder. 30 years later, the US-born, New Zealand based singer/songwriter has won critical and fan acclaim for her poetic, candid lyrics and her own brand of Neo-Celtic World Folk Fusion.

With influences like Loreena McKennitt, Sarah McLachlan, Simon and Garfunkel, Tori Amos, and Shawn Colvin, her music is a rich melting pot of musical and lyrical styles. An adept multi-instrumentalist, Melissa was first a classical vocalist, then at 14 taught herself how to play guitar, followed by the mandolin, ukulele, Irish whistle, and the piano. She is the recipient of several regional and national songwriting awards, and has played shows and/or opened for Black 47, the Young Dubliners, the Screaming Orphans, Three Dog Night, the Spin Doctors, Sister Hazel, and Smash Mouth. Her 11th album "This Solstice Day" is a celebration of her English and Scottish roots and her deep love for Celtic and classical music.
