Blessed with a voice reminiscent of an early Joni Mitchell, and an ability to imbue her vocals with palpable and authentic emotion, Saskatoon-born, Toronto based singer, songwriter and actress Melanie Peterson has become one of the brightest lights on the Toronto music scene.
Peterson was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Her parents both played guitar and sang together in a jug band while attending medical school at U of S and Melanie sites growing up listening to them sing and play folk songs as a key formative experience.
Melanie has been referred to as “Mary Poppins with a broken heart” by BBC Radio and has been recognized as having “a beautiful voice” and being a “terrific songwriter” by Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun. She earned a spot within the independent music scene in Toronto March 2012, when she showcased her songs during Canadian Music Week, at the Royal York Library Bar. She was invited back to perform two showcases at CMW 2013 where she played songs from her debut album.
