melanie dekker, singer/guitarist

Melanie Dekker’s music is vibrant & brilliant. Her thick chocolate-like voice and her animated character set her apart from other female recording artists.

She’s performed for President William J. Clinton, shared the stage with Diana Krall, Faith Hill and Bryan Adams in addition to performances for numerous corporate clients including Mercedes, Lions Gate Hospital Foundation and the Air Canada PGA tour.

Mel (as most of her friends call her) delivers playful and often potent messages in her songs, which explore the ups and downs of love and energize her audiences world-wide. Her guitar accompanies her most of the time though some of her most precious ballads are also performed both a capella and on piano.

Over Christmas 2009 Melanie went to Afghanistan to sing for the Canadian & US troops; she played 11 concerts in 2 days. She has traveled the world performing in Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and  Germany. In between touring she writes and records music that reflects what moves and inspires her throughout her travels. Mel is a fresh emerging talent perfect for your event.

“…Melanie Dekker is a genuinely talented artist.”
