Australian-Portuguese, Melissa Oliveira uses her musical background and contemporary influences in recordings and performances of fado, jazz, and originals. Last chance to catch her in Melbourne before she returns to Europe.

Oliveira began her musical studies when she was a teenager at a conservatory of classical music but later on she decided to submerge herself in the world of jazz. In 2007 she was accepted at ESMAE, College of Music in Porto, Portugal – in jazz (voice). In 2009 she was awarded a scholarship to study at the Berklee College of Music. After studying the art of jazz and scat singing she ventured on, composing her own songs and arranging her favorite tunes by Wayne Shorter, Horace Silver and Keith Jarrett and soon discovered her passion for writing lyrics and vocalese.

Oliveira had the privilege of recording her debut CD In My Garden in Boston with special guests Greg Osby and Jason Palmer and is currently presenting it using an idiosyncratic line-up which also includes the Portuguese guitar, turntables and visuals. Since recording her debut album she has been touring regularly in countries such as Australia, France, Luxemburg, Portugal and the Netherlands.

In the final Australian concert for her 2014 tour, Australian-born singer Melissa Oliveira's concert at the Boite World Music Cafe, calls up the most traditional elements of her repertoire, Portuguese fado. This concert takes her back to her own musical roots, the beloved fado songs, laments and songs of place for the Portuguese.
