"Melissa Lauren can sing. And Write...she takes gorgeous risks turning notes inside-out without ever landing flat or straining. As a Songwriter, she's a winner."
Marc Myers, Jazzwax
""I won't rest until I am my best for you."" The Toronto Chanteuse can now put up her feet - she's lovely with her strum my and breezy elegance, which is absolutely good to us. "
