The Band

Nordic Daughter is more than just a musical project it is an experience in variety, acceptance, love and logic. The musical concepts behind the music build a sense of intimacy with the audience that can only be described as genuine and authentic. The vocal stylings of Melissa Lycan are unique yet classic and the songs she delivers are heart felt and blended.  The project began in 2014 after years of working in the music business the members chose to write the first versions of the songs ready to be produced in the studio. The Band released the first EP “Forgotten” in 2017 and the second Album "The Path" in Nov 2018.  In 2020  Nordic Daughter is releasing four singles all around the challenges we face as we go on our heroes journey!  The band has performed with artists like Lita Ford, Trapt, Cold, Stitched up Heart, Jack Russell and Great White, Lost Point and Michael Morrow, selling out venues up to 500. 

Nordic Daughter’s main focus is to tour the world teaching children how to write music as an outlet for their own voices.  Interested in playing large benefit concerts, performing our fully Choreographed show for fans all over the world and giving as much of our hearts and minds to the planet as it can handle.  Get ready for the fiercest of all warriors, NORDIC DAUGHTER!
