Melissa Mecadon grew up in southern(ish) Illinois. When she was 13 she stole her dad's guitar from under the bed, and she never gave it back! After earning a degree in music education from Millikin University in Decatur, Melissa moved to Rockford to teach. Songwriting has always been a side project for Melissa, but she always tries to devote a little quality time to her writing and singing. Melissa has recently moved to Atlanta, GA where she hopes to continue writing and singing as much as possible!
