Born in Montreux, Switzerland on January 23rd, 1993, Melissa started music when she was only 6 years old by singing in a school choir for several years.
When she finished school, she spent most of her free time making music by herself or with some friends and took part in several events in her area, singing on stage, alone or with other musicians, before joining a cover band in 2012. She left the project at the end of the same year to join the Symphonic Folk Metal band Evenmore as lead vocalist, which gave her the opportunity to release her creativity while writing music and the chance to broaden her horizons and perform on great stages before well-known bands such as Lacuna Coil, Eluveitie or Xandria.
In 2015, she joined the trance metal band Rage Of Light and release an EP and an album with them. She decided to leave both Evenmore and Rage Of Light to focus on her main project: Ad Infinitum.
Since 2018, Melissa is the founding member and frontwoman of Ad Infinitum. The beginning of a beautiful journey together with Niklas, Korbinian and Adrian.
Beside Ad Infinitum, together with Hans Platz and Jenny Diehl from Feuerschwanz and Morten Løwe Sørensen from Amaranthe, she is part an ambitious project called The Dark Side Of The Moon. A band revisiting the classic of cinematography and gaming, transforming them into epic metal tracks.
She is also known for her collaborations with other artists and bands such as Feuerschwanz, Rock Meets Classic, Warkings and more…
