There’s a lot of great music coming out of the wavy ‘burbs of Southern California, and Aquadolls front-woman, Melissa Brooks, can certainly attest to that. Since her youth, this psychedelic singer has been writing songs about heart-break and female empowerment, while encouraging other girls to ignore self-doubt,and the judgement of others in order to pursue their dreams. We first met the talented artist at this year’s Burgerama, where the young woman humbly and graciously took photos with every fan, exchanged inspirational advice, and bonded over their shared musical taste. Melissa’s moving song lyrics, laid-back approach to life, and audacious sense in style make her one of our most favorite artists to watch this year. Check out our interview with Melissa, and follow the band to discover where they’ll be touring next.
