See Through



JaFoCo! Thats the term Melinda DiMaio has coined to describe her eclectic musical style, which fuses elements of jazz, folk and county. With a vocal quality that draws from a rich palette of shades and hues, DiMaios sound has been described as Patsy Cline meets Joni Mitchell. Though many of her songs emerge from personal experiences, she enjoys stepping into the skin of others to write from a variety of perspectives, thus giving her material a diverse array of viewpoints. Soft, crunchy, salty and sweet, Melindas songbook is a trail mix textures and flavors that comment on the joys, challenges, humor and ironies of the human condition.

Her driving rhythmic guitar playing, skillful vocal stylings and sheer energy draw fans to her performances again and again. Be it in a large hall or small caf, Melinda DiMaios sound pulls her listeners in and makes each feel as if she were singing to him or her alone.
