“Five Minutes With” Local Pop Artist Melissa Lamm

Melissa Lamm loves pop music. Although she is both a classically trained pianist and graduate of Carleton University’s Music program, Melissa’s passion lies in creating pop songs that resonate with listeners and keep them bopping all day long. Melissa fell in love with music as a child, first learning how to play the piano at the age of six and then writing songs shortly after. After years of practice and studying, in 2016 Melissa packed up and moved to Toronto to dive into the city’s vibrant music scene.

With five singles under her belt and an EP in the works, Melissa performs regularly around Toronto and online to her growing international audience via Twitch.tv — a live-streaming platform that plays host to a variety of live interactive video content, including live musical performances. Her dreamy vocal and piano performances have made her channel a destination on Twitch.tv’s music category, and won the hearts of many listeners from around the world.

Melissa’s debut EP, which was funded by her amazing Twitch community, is set to release in the summer of 2020.
