Melissa Levis (Songwriter): Melissa is an award-winning children's songwriter who created the character of Moey in 2005. Sporting her signature pink, sparkly dress, Moey is one of the most well-recognized and beloved performers among boys and girls in the eight-and-under-set in New York City. The New York Post dubbed her "The Pied Piper in Pink" because her young fans faithfully follow her band, Moey's Music Party, from gig to gig.
Melissa discovered the joys of singing to children after the birth of her son. As Music Director of a New York City pre-school, she honed her skills by teaching over 300 children per week for nearly three years. Melissa has been profiled by the New York Times, New York Post, The Huffington Post, Time Out NY Kids and numerous other publications. New York Family magazine called her "Part Auntie Mame, part Mary Poppins, part Maria Von Trapp." Her Off-Broadway family musical, Moey Live - P is for Party, won critical raves. She was a recent panelist at Kindiefest, the national family music conference. Melissa graduated from Brown University and received an MFA from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. She lives in New York City with her son.
