Overflowing with soul & emotion, “Played” is the rousing introduction to the velvety, caramel tones of Melisa Whiskey. A poignant reflection of a relationship, “Played” is both atmospheric & poetic, displaying Whiskey’s finesse as both a writer & singer.
The record is the first to be taken from her upcoming debut EP, due early 2017, which is the first release on her own label Whiskey Music. However, Melisa is no stranger to music and you may recognize her unmistakable vocals from the anthemic “Threshold” by UK dance producer Redlight and “Searching” from the house legend Roger Sanchez, both of which have been released over the last year.
Taking to her roots & influence, from the likes of Lauryn Hill, Sade, & Amy Winehouse, Melisa’s own releases lay her expressive, soulful style bare and in full glory. Elements of vulnerability glint through and are met by the juxtaposition of the power & strength within her voice as the lyrics resonate.
