Melody Michalski

The Voice: Melody Michalski….

Melody grew up surrounded by music, since her mother and father are both musicians. She fell asleep every night to the sound of her dad’s saxophone and growing up she would jam on the piano with her sister and cousin as they sang three-part harmony together. Her mom tried to teach her piano lessons, but she could never sit still long enough to practice, until she realized she could create her own music. Starting at age seven she would sit at the piano and make up her own songs, even though she had no idea what she was doing theoretically. During Melody’s teenage years she started writing complete songs with lyrics and melodies to sing along with piano chords. At age 20, she decided to leave her home town in South Carolina to pursue her music career in Los Angeles where she is now a singer/songwriter, performer, studio vocalist, and teacher.
