It’s been a long and winding road that brings Melissa Greener to Eastern North Carolina. Her love of music became evident when she got her first guitar at age 9, and by high school she was performing at talent shows. However, wanderlust and lost loves sidetracked her music career as Greener spent time in Canada and explored teaching in China.Upon her return, she found nothing but closed doors in Nashville so she headed for Austin, Texas where her talent was applauded and nourished.
Blessed with a glorious, outsized, and utterly distinctive voice, Greener is also an accomplished guitarist whose powerful acoustic flat-picking is rooted in blues and folk. Combine that with a songwriting skill that is poetry for the heart and an outstanding stage presence – Melissa Greener is the total package!
