Biography

With over 45,000 downloads sold to date in 2013, Melissa Otero is an internationally acclaimed musical artist in both the Latin and Pop/Rock world. Born in New Jersey and raised in Puerto Rico, Melissa felt compelled to honor both her American and Latin roots in her music by writing and performing in both English and Spanish. She released her first single “My First Everything” in 2006 which became the #1 single for two consecutive weeks on Hot 96 in Portland, Oregon. Fueled by the success of the single, she immediately released the Spanish version “Mi Primer Amor” together in her first EP and it instantly became a favorite in Colombia with over 500 downloads in it’s first few weeks.

On Christmas day in 2008, her first LP was released titled “My Spirit” and it received massive radio airplay in parts of Western Europe, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the US. This lead to her first US tour visiting the states of Wisconsin, New Jersey, New York and Florida. The single “10:40pm” was an instant success on tour, becoming the most demanded song for her to perform live with its dramatic chord progressions and solid classic rock ballad feel.

By 2010, Melissa had toured the US, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. She was ready to start work on her next album and the tour brought fresh insight and inspiration. Melissa began working on a new song entitled “Angels and Demons.” She teamed with producer Stefan Moessle of Secret Sounds to create the musical arrangement that accompanies the song. They worked hard to develop the dark and sexy instrumentation that would later define Melissa’s innate sound.
