What most might call Americana, folk-rock or country music, Canadian songwriter Melanie Brulée colours her own, bringing a vintage respect to a modern sound by intertwining surf-style guitar tones (like Dick Dale
meets Johnny Cash
) and catchy melody hooks (reminiscent of Sheryl Crow
or Stevie Nicks
) - all with the vibe of a speakeasy cabaret (think Eartha Kitt
and Édith Piaf
). Her second album, Fires, Floods & Things We Leave Behind, exploring themes of family, loss and addiction will be released September 2018.
