Blessed with a voice influenced by an early Joni Mitchell, and 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 one of the brightest lights on the Toronto music scene.
Peterson was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: her mother of Norwegian heritage, while her father’s family came from Czechoslovakia. Her parents both played guitar and sang together in a band while attending medical school at U of S and Melanie sites growing up listening to her father sing and play Bob Dylan songs as a key formative experience.
“A melodically enchanting songwriter and musically adept guitarist.” ~ New Moon Magazine
