Welcome to the 200th Episode of The Artist Connection Podcast! I want to thank my family, friends, and listeners for your continued support and allowing me to reach this milestone. My guest today is the lovely and talented Melissa VanFleet. I contacted her in New York City only to discover that she grew up just a few miles from me! Melissa has been an entertainer her whole life. She started singing and dancing at a very young age and has been at it ever since. She was raised with an appreciation for all types of music, and it really shows. We talked about her work in New York and New Jersey, as well as her time in Nashville. Three of her songs are featured with this episode. Please check out the rest on Amazon and iTunes. You can learn more about Melissa at She was recently moved to the next round in VH1's "Make a Band Famous" competition. Please go to Twitter and tweet "@VH1 #MABF #melissavanfleet" to show your support. This is a big opportunity for her, so vote often! Please reach out to her and let her know that you heard her here first. Enjoy!
