Independent Christian recording artist, Melinda Chaney has been touring throughout the southeast since 2012. Churches, community and music festivals, coffee houses, non-traditional services, children’s homes, homeless shelters and benefits are some of the venues where Melinda has performed.
Ministering and performing are important aspects of Melinda’s life. She has been a performer most of her life, singing her first solo at age 3. She sang in her first country band at age 13. She has performed with numerous school, community and church choirs from middle school through college. Melinda has performed in background choirs for Amy Grant’s Tennessee Christmas accompanying Vince Gil, Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. In early 2012, Melinda and her husband formed a band and started worshiping through song. Whether opening for American Idol finalist, Phil Stacey, or headlining her own concert, Melinda's performance is full of fun and energy.
Melinda's songs are about life, worship and praise. Some of her songs are deep and spiritual while others are light and fun. Melinda’s songs show her wide range of influences, from Martina McBride to 80s rock to classic hymns. Her music can be classified as Contemporary Christian, Christian Country and Christian Rock. She released her debut EP, Glory to God, in December of 2012 and her latest EP, You Gave Me Life, in spring 2014.
