CALLS & ECHOES
a full-length record by Melissa Polinar
"Performing is something Polinar does with ease. The songbird has a beautiful soothing voice that mixes well with her skilled acoustic guitar playing... Polinar is like a rare jewel, like an antique Victrola - full of beauty, full of passion, and full of songs yet to be written."
- W. Mark Dendy - Jan 10, 2013 Examiner.com
"Polinar channels the soulfulness of Tracy Chapman and the folkie punch of Stevie Nicks while intermittently tapping on her guitar to keep rhythm...Polinar’s vast musical collage makes it nearly impossible to ascribe her sound to any particular genre."
- Adam Joseph - Monterey County Weekly
“...with fine-tuned perfect pitch, sprinkles her songs with soulful guitar progressions and powerful vocals. Her melodies are refreshingly innovative, while her playing and voice, some would say, equate that of a female John Mayer.”
-Tiffany Kang - WQHS Radio Blog [University of Pennsylvania]
"Melissa Polinar has the hottest voice and the coolest musicality, like that of a John Mayer or James Taylor. Top that off with a killer smile and charisma...you've got one captivating artist!"

"Polinar's strength is finding perfect melodies and hooks to tell her stories with conviction and emotion.

One of my favorite artists to have in my studio and more of a treat to have her as a friend and an "on call" session vocalist!"
