Blessed with an ability to imbue her vocals with palpable emotion without going over the top, Melanie Peterson, a Saskatoon born, Toronto based, singer-songwriter and actress has quietly become a bright light on the Toronto folk music scene.

She launched her first full-length album ‘Unbreakable’ in 2013. Then, with a grant from FACTOR Canada, Melanie Peterson, once again teamed up with producer and band member Mitch Girio to produce her sophomore album ‘Anywhere from Here’, which she released in 2016. The album feedback was positive and Melanie toured through Ontario and Quebec in the summer of 2016. She also played shows in Edmonton, Vancouver, St. John and Halifax in 2017 thanks to the Via Rail ‘Artists On Board Program’. Many of the songs from ‘Unbreakable’ and 'Anywhere From Here' received spins on BBC and CBC.
Melanie is writing her third album which she plans to release in 2019.

Quotes:

“I’m someone who listens for the lyrics of a song and their ability to tell a story – Melanie can not only put words together well, she is also a talented “tunesmith” and the combination of a compelling story and a catchy tune is a talent I particularly admire.” Monica Winfield BBC Radio Leicester Host

I can hear the Joni Mitchell influence in her voice, but there is a significant difference between the two—Joni’s voice is cool, introverted and detached, whereas Melanie’s is warmth personified. ALTROCKCHICK.COM

“If you are looking for super live music, check out Melanie Peterson, a terrific singer and songwriter. She sounds just as good live as she does on her album. She has a beautiful voice and her songwriting is tops too”....Joe Warmington The Saturday Sun
