With a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination and a title for "Best Americana song" from the Independent Music Awards, Melissa McClelland has officially left the suburbs far behind. Melissa recently joined Luke Doucet on the Cayamo Cruise with Americana heavies John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett and Emmylou Harris, among others. As well, Melissa will soon be releasing a duet with Sarah McLachlan, and will be on the Lilith Fair bill this summer. Victoria Day was Melissa's debut on Six Shooter Records in both Canada and the U.S. The album hit the Top 5 Most Added Albums on Americana Radio just after its US release last June. Melissa's impressive on-stage backing vocal history attests to this pure talent; she has been invited to sing with Jesse Cook, Sarah McLachlan, and Luke Doucet, and was the single guest vocal appearance on Blue Rodeo's lauded Live at Massey Hall (2008).
