"Alternative Pop artist/songwriter Melissa VanFleet may have stars in her eyes, but unlike many other young artists starting out, Melissa already sounds like a seasoned pro, both musically and lyrically. Not many women singers hold our attention these days–many have the pipes to do the job but lack the depth and resonance–that warm buttery tone of voice that endears us to listen again and again. Honesty is the one word that we keep coming back to with VanFleet’s tunes–honesty of writing, of emotion, of effort. This may be Melissa’s debut album, but this is no ‘beginner’ offering. The fabulous writing is matched by equally fabulous melodies and solid production to make this album a joy to listen to. Over and over."
“There are many striking singer songwriters that excite or touch more than just the ear with deep satisfaction. On rare occasions one comes along to not only bring such joy but also leave people standing wide eyed, open eared and mesmerised by their most important instrument, the voice. One such person is award-winning pop artist/songwriter/pianist Melissa VanFleet, her ability to combine influences from soul, rock, jazz standards and blues in her music and then to pass that on with vocals that suspend the world and fill hearts stunning. A regular on The Reputation Radio Shows and in the Reputation Media site we took the opportunity to take some of her precious busy time to find out more about ‘The Voice’ that is Melissa VanFleet...”

We also discussed her nominations for the 2014 Artists in Music Awards..."

We were treated to a pianist/singer from Nashville by the name of Melissa VanFleet, who boasted a Norah Jones-like appeal.”
“From the time she was in elementary school, music and dancing have been part of Melissa VanFleet's life. The Bethlehem native sang her first solo, "Blowing in the Wind," when she was in third grade... Now the 24-year-old could win a walk-on part of one of the longest running musicals in New York City: 'Chicago.'”
