As a veteran in the music business, Melissa Hembree has been recording and touring the United States since she was 9 years old. A gifted wordsmith, she excels in crafting songs that speak to the heart of the everyman in country & folk.
“Born for the stage, Melissa embodies feminine strength with a low-tone gutsy presentation of smoke and whiskey drenched, heartfelt Okie songs. Seasoned and still true, she’s a real band leader and champion of those around her.” – Nellie Clay
“Her self penned tunes are well crafted, well played, and sung from the depths of heart. A strong, powerful voice that speaks with full authority of a life lived with danger in the no passing zone.” – Rick Reiley, Corridor Magazine.
