From a young age Melissa Ramski knew she wanted nothing more than to become a country artist and has done just that with the help of her supportive family and friends. In fourth grade when asked to dress as her future self, Melissa knew who she was destined to be and strutted into school the next day with her cowboy boots and microphone in hand ready to invest herself in a music career. That same year Melissa started to get involved in fine arts, playing the lead in the fourth grade play and competing in her local country fair’s talent show. By middle school Melissa was enrolled in vocal lessons and developed confidence in herself as an artist and model. In high school, Melissa tried out for her school’s cheer team as well as being involved in her school’s choir and drama club. A very busy teen, Melissa spent her weekends traveling to various music venues and competitions.
Always wanting to be one step ahead, Melissa enrolled in a music program that brought her to Nashville - the heart of country music. There she had the opportunity to write and record her first ever song. That Christmas, Melissa and her sister released a christmas single that made it onto the Grammy nomination list. Upon their success, they released their debut album Lost in Your Eyes in 2010, which was written and composed by Melissa herself. A diverse artist, Melissa and her sister Mindy also starred in an independent film entitled Careful What You Wish For.
More recently Melissa released her new single Keep Dreamin and plans on releasing yet another single called Masquerade on May 1st. So look forward to hearing more from this up and coming artist and check out her music available via iTunes, Soundcloud, and on her website at www.melissaramski.com.
I am currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles as a marketing major. Upon realizing that I wanted to change the way people perceive country music and to help women have a voice, I began Next Women of Country in 2015 promoting new female artists and sharing their stories with the world.
