Sounds Like: Alabama Shakes, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Led Zepplin, Björk

Bio: An incredible master of improv, Melissa deconstructs the blues, pushes jazz to the outer limits and burns through rock-n-roll like the love child of Jerry Lee Lewis and the MC5. The real deal !

"Our next guest was a newcomer to the Kashmir Klub, and an incendiary one at that: MELISSA REAVES, it would be fair to say, knows her chops! Her guitar playing is furiously rhythmic, her command of echo pedals (enabling her to sample herself, building up layers of funkiness) is awesome, and her voice has power in reserve, possessing an incredible, visceral attack; the combination of these elements reminded this listener of Janis Joplin, backed by Curtis Mayfield. Through the four songs she played for us, Melissa moved across a variety of moods, mostly up tempo - although her album Sentimental Anthem shows she can handle slower material with equal aplomb. A truly original talent, we hope Melissa will come back soon."
