Melissa Montgomery is a Pop-Country / Singer / Songwriter / Actor / Author / Dancer / Painter / Inspirational Speaker who grew up in a small town outside of Oklahoma City called Choctaw. She began singing at the age of nine and by the age of fifteen with influences from her dad’s love of country and classic rock, she was already writing, recording, and performing around Oklahoma and many other areas. She has won numerous awards such as the Horizon Award at the Oklahoma Opry where she recorded her first song ‘Someday’, the Colgate Country Show Down state winner, and was voted the OCMA (Oklahoma Country Music Association) female vocalist and entertainer of the year. She has opened up for headlining acts including Steve Holy and Clay Davidson. Shortly after, she began recording radio and television commercial jingles with such companies as Chevrolet, Bank First, and Channel 43 in Oklahoma City all written by Ryan Bellgardt, who in return produced several of her first originals.
She then began experimenting with sounds and anything inspirational that led her to Nashville where she lived for 11 years. She was contacted by her publisher Mark Meckel who introduced her to his son Mr. Nathan Meckel who she worked alongside and formed the band Upside of Envy. They won a contest with Sonic and received a trophy, and had a few write-ups about her performances in the paper that led her to meet and greets with Mr. Morgan Freeman through fellow musicians as he shook her hand and called her “Ms. Nashville.”
