About

With her gorgeous tone, three-octave range, and impeccable phrasing, Melissa Walker has won kudos in concerts across several continents. Critics agree this brainy beauty has the goods to be included among today's most compelling vocalists. Billboard says, "Melissa Walker stakes her claim as one of the most sensitive singers of her generation." Performing music from her much-anticipated upcoming release entitled In the Middle of It All (Sunnyside), Walker gathers a potent mix that combines her powerful yet intimate style, with the arranging pallet of bassist Christian McBride's funkiness and the world-influenced beats of longtime bandmate and musical director, drummer Clarence Penn.
