Melissa Morgan

By April 5, 2015 Jazz No Comments

With vocals labeled by producer John Clayton as sassy, sexy, and interesting, Melissa Morgan has come a long way since being named a semifinalist at the 2004 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition. Backed by Telarc Records, she released her debut album, Until I Met You, in 2009. Renowned Jazz expert and educator Dr. Herb Wong said Melissa is a “contagious true Jazz singer…the one we’ve been waiting for,” and JazzTimes Magazine categorized her music as “audacious and decidedly salty.” With elements of Nancy Wilson and Dinah Washington in her sound, Melissa Morgan truly shines on stage.
