MELISSA "Jazzmom" FISCHER
Melissa Bledsoe Fischer, is a pianist/vocalist with over 30 years of professional music experience. With 5 Cd’s to her name (and 4 children), she established herself as one of Anchorage’s premier performers. She can take a jazz standard or a common blues tune and make it all her own, with a vocal quality that ranges from soft and sultry to bold and bawdy. The Anchorage Daily News describes Melissa as a "most impressive performer, singing with great passion and emotion." Melissa was voted, "Anchorage's Best Singer" in 2005 and “Best Solo Act” in 2009 by the readers of the Anchorage Press. The “Jazzmom” is sure to delight audiences of all ages with her wide and interesting repertoire delivered with experienced professionalism. She now lives in New Orleans, LA, but with the wonders of SJF's Hunker Down Edition, has agreed to join us again this year.
