Melinda Davis
Armed with no more than her voice, her words, & her guitar, Melinda Davis started to write songs meant to expose the soul & stir the emotions. After dedicating many years to honing her songwriting craft, she has achieved the status of "professional" songwriter; hired to write songs for a specialty retail company.
Recognized for her strong songwriting, Melinda was a runner-up in the 2008 Singer/Songwriter Awards. Her song "The Best of Me" has been #1 on the charts. Also, "A Brighter Shade of New" was featured on the compilation "On the Move - Sounds Inspired by Mumia Abu Jamal" along with several grammy-award winning artists. An experienced performer as well as a writer, Melinda has had the honor of playing at the Legendary Friar's Club in NYC.
From 2006 to 2008, she fronted the band "Melinda Davis & The Eleventh Hour", until the tragic & unexpected death of the drummer, George Andrew, in April 2008. She continues to play the tri-state area acoustically.
