Melissa Lefton

Melissa Lefton, b. Melissa Janis Lefton on August 13, 1975 in Chicago, Illinois, USA, is a singer, songwriter and comedienne.

Melissa Lefton is a singer for whom massive success has passed by mostly due to bad timing. Her debut major label album (featuring a punk-rock sound) was slated to be released in 1999 but was shelved two weeks beforehand. Her second album, for Jive Records, was slated for release on September 11, 2001 and because of the events of that day, was not released at all.

Lefton has been compared to singers like Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Gibson and Julie Brown and was even critically referred to as the "anti-Britney." Combining an upbeat pop sound with breathy, little-girl vocals (that bely a much stronger training background than Britney,) Lefton writes satirical songs that often address very serious issues.

Her album "Melicious" took on topics like pollution, date-rape, occultism and murder with tongue in cheek. Lefton is currently working on her third album which hopefully will procure an actual release.
