Bio

Melanie Dekker is a Canadian roots-pop sensation with a 'voice like chocolate’. Her songs weave between emotion and sensibilities as they tug on your heart and leave you smiling. Her songs hit with immediate impact and she tours a shed-load! :) On March 2nd, 2018 ‘Secret Spot’ was fresh out of the gates, this is her 6th studio album. Her past CDs have some fabulous accolades: 'Distant Star' sold 12,000 copies and "Revealed' was produced by David Kershenbaum (Tracy Chapman, Joe Jackson). Dekker has radio hits and music syndicated on both film & TV, she tours 80 concerts per year, she’s been the support act for Bryan Adams, Diana Krall, Russell Peters, Edwin McCain, & Faith Hill and her string of popular youtube videos include the Polar Bear Swim, 2010 Olympics, her own tooth removal, concerts in Afghanistan, and a romantic run-in with a mannequin.

Dekker's influences include Joni Mitchell, Tom Petty, Tracy Chapman, Fleetwood Mac, John Mayer & CCR.

Festival Highlights - Headlined the Viru Folk Music Fest in Estonia || Skagen Music Festival, the Ebeltoft Music Festival & Nibe Music Festival in Denmark || Hildesheim Jazz Festival, the Dresden Stadt Fest & the Rudolstadt World Music festival in Germany || and at home in Canada she’s a regular at the W.Vancouver Harmony Arts Festival, the Shambhala Music Festival & the Filberg Folk Music Festival, in BC, Canada.

This past year and upcoming Highlights -Performed with Bryan Adams 2017 in Ulm, DE, new CD produced by award winning  CAD producer: Sheldon Zaharko, and supported by Creative BC & BC Government. Christmas single on radio across Europe & N. America is a duet w/James Byrnes (Jimmy the west coast blues music legend)

Perhaps of significance -   1. We do great promotions and I could surely help draw some new fans. 2. My Hippie tour T-shirts are perfect for the concert vibe. 3. I have a few songs on radio at the moment 4. I am often tempted to write a song or story about a new event, perhaps this one!

"A fiery performer that tells stories from the heart that are carried along with hooky melodies...the show is breathtaking!" SME studios.

According to: David Kershenbaum (producer for Tracy Chapman, Tori Amos, Joan Baez, Joe Jackson,) : "Discovering and working with Melanie Dekker matches the excitement and enthusiasm I experienced with other new female artists including Tracy Chapman and Tori Amos. And I strongly feel that Melanie's originality and uniqueness at writing and performing will quickly launch her further into celebrity status. She is definitely an artist to pay attention to."

"Pure Energy & Emotion with a strong voice" Elephant Ears Entertainment.
