There she found her love for pop singing and began her journey as a vocalist, eventually singing back up for PHISH at Madison Square Garden. Melissa’s “Bad Feels Good” is just the first single among many. Her music has been described as the lyrical styling of Maggie Rogers mixed with the vocal edge of Demi Lovato.
