Pure soul and stellar vocals that consistently lend to an exquisite and elegant level of performance.
With a classic sound reminiscent of a time when Nina Simone and Etta James were queens, a raw, soulful power that belongs to Janis Joplin, Adele, or Brandi Carlile, and delivering vocal intimacy like Norah Jones or Diana Krall.

Melissa Ellis delivers an unmatched level of entertainment as her southern charm and tasteful blend of classic standards (Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Frank Sinatra etc) to Contemporary Pop (Adele, John Legend, Norah Jones) will add a sophisticated touch to your event.

Let Melissa help you create a magical wedding or special event with music as she offers several different packages to fit almost any budget!

Melissa can perform solo (piano/voice) or with up to 5 musicians.

Also visit Melissa Ellis & The Fellas for full band options.

Melissa creates a contagious energy and smooth performance environment, making your event unforgettable! Over the years as a solo artist, an ensemble performer, and front-woman of her band, she has entertained for events and venues such as The Miss Tennessee Pageants, The Cumberland County Playhouse, and Nashville's infamous Ryman Auditorium, along with countless other parties, weddings, live music venues, concerts, and festivals

Melissa is a great entertainer for any party or event you are having! I've hired her a couple times in the past at my coffee shop and I've NEVER been disappointed! This was the first I had hired her for a private party and everyone loved her! I highly recommend!
