About Melissa McClelland
Melissa McClelland is known for bringing bloody-knuckled tales of blackouts, knockouts, bayonets and bad apples to life. Melissa’s crystal-clear vocals and gritty tales are both pure and coy, recalling songbird Patsy Cline and storyteller Tom Waits all at once. Awards have come in the form of Hamilton Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination (Contemporary Singer of the Year) and a songwriting prize for “Passenger 24” from the Independent Music Awards for Best Americana Song. Now, with new band Whitehorse, Melissa officially ties the musical knot with husband Luke Doucet.
