Born in St John's, Newfoundland and raised in Longview, Texas and Quispamsis, New Brunswick, Melissa Hunt is establishing herself in Canada as an emerging country artist. She has opened for Juno Award winner Melanie Doane as well as CCMA duo award nominee’s and winners Twin Kennedy and number 1 hit artist Chris Cummings. This past September, Melissa was invited to perform at the Diamonds in the Rough Showcase during CCMA week in London, Ontario.
In June 2016 Melissa released her debut singles "Highway 83" and "Smoke & Cinders". Both releases were met with a warm reception from country radio and its listeners, reaching the top 100 on our Canadian Country music charts.
Building upon the momentum of her powerful singles in 2016, she is eager to share her 3rd single "Lay It All Down" set to release this March. Preparing for her 2017 EP, Melissa is living by her own words as she continues to gain ground in the Canadian Country Music Industry.
“I want nothing more then to share my music with the world, to be inspired and to inspire others” - Melissa Hunt.
