"I had never heard Melissa’s music live, and to say I was impressed would be an understatement! This girl has definitely got it going on."

Still working on that hot first release.



Native of Baldwin County, Alabama, Melissa Joiner has been submersed in music since birth. Her diverse style and creative use of formal opera training and Delta blues influence has created a unique sound that makes her a standout among other gulf coast female vocalists. In her first summer of being a professional musician, she hosted the Gulf Coast Songwriter Shootout in the world famous Florabama, and participated in many festivals which include the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival, Mississippi Songwriters Festival, Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival, and the 43rd International Shrimp Festival just to name a few. She is the co-founder and co-producer of the Gulf Coast Songwriter Shootout, and founder and executive producer of the Songs that Save concert series. In 2016, she took on the role of music coordinator for P&O cruise lines. Melissa has been featured on 92ZEW FM live concert series, and has opened up for several national touring acts. Melissa has recently performed on PBS's Studio Amped with her band, and just finished her first EP. Recently Melissa spent three months playing in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and other countries in the Pacific Islands and looks forward to playing in an area near you! Melissa has joined forces with local singer-songwriter Kristen Long to form a band called The Hypsy Sisters. In September of this year, Melissa became the lead singer for New Earth Army, and is playing festivals and recording new music with the band.
