Waiting is her debut

Melissa Brethauer has a warm, inviting voice that's very strong and pens some impressive songs on this debut. Opener "Texas on my mind" has a nice, relaxed feel and she really sings well without overdoing it. "Waiting" is a sensitive song about a troubled soul that works well. Her vocals are strong thoughout. "What you do to me" is a sweet love song that shows off the singer's voice well. She's made a strong debut and is set for a bright future in music.
