Melissa Lefton (born Melissa Janis Lefton on August 13, 1975 in Chicago, Illinois) is a female pop singer\songwriter from the early 2000s.
In her college years, Melissa attended New York University to study communications and became interested in pursuing a music career. She joined a punk rock band called Product, but it turned out to be short-lived.
After that, Melissa signed a deal with Jive Records. During that time, she appeared on various soundtracks for films such as “The Princess Diaries,” “Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius” and “On the Line”.
Her debut solo album “Melicious” was scheduled to be released in August of 2001, but it ended up being shelved. Despite that, promotional copies of the album appear to exist. In order to help promote the album, Melissa appeared in a short film called “Behind the Muse”.
In an attempt to help her career, Melissa’s record label set her up with a manager who sent her to Los Angeles to become an actress, but when that didn’t quite pan out, Melissa returned to New York City and began working as a commercial jingle writer.
In 2006, Melissa released an album with her band, Hello. Since then, it’s unknown what she’s up to these days and it appears as if Melissa has faded into obscurity.
