The WDVX Blue Plate Special live from Visit Knoxville – 6/15 – Melissa Ellis / Brian Bielanski
June 15, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Melissa Ellis possesses a vocal style that is unmatched by any other and a power that packs one serious punch. With versatile maneuverings between her warm opulent tone and texture, reminiscent of classic jazz sirens, to her soulful delivery and distinctive growl of the blues, this “Southern Spitfire” has concocted an unforgettable signature blend of blues, jazz, and blue-eyed soul coupled with her charming, southern accent.
Imagine Nirvana and the Beatles had a kid together who became an acoustic rock singer/songwriter: that’s Bryan Bielanski! Although he is inspired by some of the rock greats like Tom Petty and REM, he has a distinct musical style and songs with lyrics that make you think deep thoughts and feel like you’re really alive!
