Melissa's history in the Southern California music scene spans more than 15 years, rocking venues from Hollywood's Whisky A Go Go and the Key Club, to countless corporate and private events, as well as club gigs throughout California and Arizona. She has shared stages with artists such as Joey Belladonna of Anthrax and the international Doors tribute, Wild Child, along with many unsigned artists of all genres.
During her musical career, Melissa wrote or co-wrote three full-length alternative rock albums with her 10-year project, Sachi, which led to accolades from the Inland Empire Music Awards. She's also the author of two published science fiction novels.
Though David Anderson is the king of the keys in Without Warning, Melissa actually plays keyboards herself. She is an avid fan of iconic 70s keyboardists such as Jon Lord and Ray Manzarek due to her piano training. Deep down, she's a huge metalhead - faithfully upping the irons whenever Iron Maiden comes to town - and closely follows other acts such as Blind Guardian, Sonata Arctica, Leaves' Eyes and Nevermore.GEAR:
