"Melissa's playing is outstanding; it gave the tracks a rich, orchestral feel. Melissa intuitively knew exactly what was needed for each track, without any guidance. I am fortunate to have worked with some of the best musicians in the world over the last few years, and Melissa is well and truly now on that list."  

— Mark Barnwell [Täyu, "Incantation" : GaiaBreathe]  


"I have worked with Melissa continuously over the last 10 years on many different compositional styles including folk, country, jazz, electronica, rock and music for relaxation. She seamlessly adapts to all of these styles. Her sense of harmony, wonderful arrangements, her meticulous and beautiful musicianship, and her warm personality are everything one looks for when working with other professional musicians. Melissa has her own recording studio, so she is able to make high quality string recordings and arrangements that have always been superb. I highly recommend Melissa as the string player you need!"  

— Inga Liljeström  


"Cox’s violin-playing shifts effortlessly from soft-toned melody and fluid lead lines to dynamic bursts of high-energy riffing."  

— Bruce Lindsay, [reviewing "Pinball"]
