When your list of fans includes music industry heavyweights such as Questlove, India.Arie, Jay Sean, Karmin, Ernie Halter, and Tony Lucca, you’re doing something right.
Singer/songwriter, Melissa Polinar has been steadily acquiring new fans since she started posting YouTube videos in 2008. These videos which feature Polinar’s gorgeous voice, stellar musicianship, and intriguing songwriting have racked up millions of hits. Although her early postings were cover songs, Polinar has garnered the most acclaim from her original work.
Polinar’s independently released album, Calls & Echoes, (produced by David Ryan Harris) is a mix of musical genres layered with vulnerably honest vocals. While you may hear traces of Polinar’s influences – Tracy Chapman, Adele, Stevie Nicks – this album is totally original, versatile, and filled with fresh, authentic acoustic soul.
