Melissa Marchese

Melissa Marchese is a fierce singer with an undeniable stage presence who stands out in a world full of twee singers and songwriters. Marchese boldly commands the stage with her soulful voice and passionate energy. She found her voice as a child, singing folk songs with her family, exploring her love of languages in both English and in French. Her dedication for music grew and evolved and she performed with many establish groups through her formative years finally deciding to focus on her own songs and direction. World-class producer/engineer Nick Blagona (Deep Purple, Alexisonfire, The Sheepdogs) saw real promise for Marchese when he took on the role of producing her previous ventures.  Blagona would capitalize on Marchese's vocals finding endless dynamics and ranges to guide the myriad of songs and styles he was looking for. When she sings, Marchese can slap you to attention with a roar like a lioness and then lull you back down with an angelic touch. Every new song she writes offers another facet to her complex love for songwriting and with every note she sings, Marchese leaves audiences enthralled.

On Sept. 4, 2017, Melissa Marchese performs alongside James Barker Band, The Reklaws, The Redhill Valleys and The Pistolettes as part of a free Supercrawl-presented showcase concert that kicks off at 2:30pm in the South Plaza of Tim Hortons Field (64 Melrose Ave., Hamilton).
