Melanie Peterson in Niagara Falls

Happy Canada Day!

I have the honor of having been invited to play in Niagara Falls this month. Peter Collins (bass), Mitch Girio (guitar) and I plan to put together a hugely entertaining show. I love the adventure of playing outside of Toronto with these talented musicians at my side. If you are near Niagara Falls and have a chance to come hear us at the Dunn Street Grill (6095 Dunn Street) on Saturday July 26th, 9pm you wont be disappointed. It’ll be a fascinating trip through past, present and future material at this comfortable family restaurant with a bit of a pub feel.

Happy June to you and I hope your month will be filled with music. Here’s what’s going on with me:

As many of you know I have been dubbed by press & radio as “Mary Poppins with a broken heart.” In honor of that title, the final track of my six song digital cover EP READ IT ON THE RADIO is: STAY AWAKE from Disney’s classic movie Mary Poppins. You can listen/download here: www.melaniepeterson.bandcamp.com

Listen to Stay Awake on SoundCloud.

Now that all the tracks are up, you can consider downloading the entire album!

New Track: Lost Cause

7-04+Mel@PL+340

I’m so excited about this week’s song release: LOST CAUSE. I was never a huge BECK fan, but when producer Mitch Girio introduced me to this song, I just had to sing it. I felt it was incredibly relatable. Hunky Peter Collins is busy on this song with piano, organ, bass and backing vocals. Pete Lambert is playing the suitcase (yup). And Mitch added some guitar to the song, not to mention produced, mixed and mastered. Listen and/or download here: www.melaniepeterson.bandcamp.com

Listen on SoundCloud.

My website is up and running at www.melaniepeterson.ca. Thanks to the talented Paul Virostek, you can watch my videos, find gig listings, listen to tracks from my albums, buy my albums and look at pictures all in one place!

Lastly, I have a show coming up at the Cameron House on June 4th at 8pm in Toronto to help support and fund our friends at Ovarian Cancer Canada… An amazing cause and an amazing line-up of female indie talent!!! Read more on the Facebook Page. $10 or PWYC Come say hi! You can pick up a CD at the merch table and some of Peter’s famous hummus!

A lot of HEART

feathers

It’s all about HEART these days, and I’m loving it!

I’ve released song number four of my 6 song cover EP this week. It’s called HEART and it is unique in the sense that the song writer (Nick Lowe) is having a heart to heart with his heart. Have a listen to my rendition here and hear what I mean. As usual this tune was produced by the talented Mitch Girio.

Download it here at bandcamp.

I’m also excited to have been invited to perform a few songs with the hunky Peter Collins at my dear friend Ritchie Sinclair’s art opening. I met him around the same time I met Peter and he has been a great friend and supporter of our music ever since. It is a real honor to be invited to support him in return.
