Who is Melissa Hunt? 

My name is Melissa, I'm 23 years old, and I’m a contemporary country Artist here in New Brunswick, Canada. I'm 5'11 and 3/4, I'm incredibly clumsy, I'm shy and I have an offbeat sense of humor. I always stop to smell the roses and enjoy the little things in life. I can be a backseat driver. I almost always have a piece of chocolate in my purse (It's not a treat.. it's a Food Group). The stars in the night sky amaze me sometimes. My pets, my family and friends are my whole world. And for as long as I can possibly remember, my biggest passion is music. 

 In fact it's not just a passion. Music is part of my genetic make-up; It’s just part of who I am and what makes me.. well, me.
