Press release: September 7th, 2016
Silverado Records, an independent Country music record label, today announced the signing of recording artist Melissa Mickelson of Oregon. Mickelson, originally from Oklahoma and Texas, has deep musical influences and fondly recalls some of her best family memories being nights hunkered around the LP player, spinning Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson vinyl. Mickelson currently resides in the small farming community of Boring, Oregon and has performed her high-energy sets for thousand across the Pacific NW and is known for her smooth, Rock and Blues influenced vocals.
“Melissa is an incredibly fun and energetic personality, and we’ve really enjoyed getting to know her,” said Silverado Records A&R Director Aaron Chesling. “We can’t wait to share with you some new music she’s been working on, and letting her amazing personality bubble through the music,” he added.
The label will be re-releasing Mickelson’s 2015 self-titled EP, featuring a smooth and fun take on the Barbara Mandrell Classic “I Was Country (When Country Wasn’t Cool),” and She is currently writing tracks and planning for a new EP to be released in 2017.
“Melissa’s next project is setting up to be a very fun and realistic look at who she is as a person, and we couldn’t be more excited about that,” said Silverado Records CEO Scott Thomas. “The more you get to know her, the more you want to hang out with her and hear what she’s working on musically. Our team is very excited to be a part of growing her fan base and sharing some great Country music from her,” he said.
On signing with Silverado Records, Melissa said “I am so excited to join the Silverado Records family! It is a dream come true to have found a place where I can be myself and allow my music to reflect who I really am.” “They’re an amazing team of people who believe in me. Working together, I can’t wait to see what the future holds,” she added.
