Lucerne's Melissa Lischer, daughter to a Cameroonian mother and a Swiss father, lives in Zurich at the moment. In the autumn of 2012 Melissa Lischer signed a label deal with profimedia. On February 22, 2013 Melissa Lischer with “Come Closer” released her first single. The wonderful folk-pop song which was produced by Toby Meyer is accompanied by a music video. “Come Closer” was not only played on many radio stations in Switzerland but amongst others especially in Brazil where the song counted amongst the 10 most popular listener songs on one of the biggest stations.
Already at the early age of six Melissa began to sing and make music with great enthusiasm. At 16 she was lead singer for the locally known big band “Föhn” from Kriens (Lucerne), together with Lea Bissig. This was followed by first recordings and appearances in the Stadtkeller Lucerne, at the Lucerne Music Festival and the Willisauer Jazz Festival. Several years of vocal training and an education as a singer/songwriter with Andy Dossenbach, the renowned Swiss song-coach as well as lessons in piano and guitar molded Melissa Lischer into a musician with a fantastic perspective for her recently launched musical journey as a solo artist.
Together with Andreas Scheiben (Klangmalerei Studio) Melissa Lischer has started the recordings for her debut album “The Creation” in early 2014. On May 2, 2014 the single “Roots” is going to be released before her debut album will be published by profimedia on May 23, 2014.
