Fresh was the first album by Australian actress, singer and model Melissa Tkautz, released in 1992.

In 1991, playing the role of Nikki Spencer on Channel 10's drama soap, E Street, Tkautz embarked on a recording career. Melissa's debut single, "Read My Lips", reached #1 on the Australian singles chart.[2] "Read My Lips" was certified platinum,[3] and became the sixth highest-selling single of 1991 in Australia.[3] Tkautz's next release, "Sexy (Is The Word)", reached #3,[2] was certified gold,[4] and was the fifty-seventh highest-selling single of 1991 in Australia.[4] Her third single, 1992's "Skin to Skin", had less success, and peaked at #16 in Australia.[2]

Following the release of these three singles, the album Fresh was released in June 1992. The album did not fare as well as the singles, peaking at #15 in Australia,[2] and spending only seven weeks in the top 100.[4] A fourth single from the album, "My House", was released in November 1992, but peaked outside the top 100 at #119.[5]
