ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Toronto-based singer and songwriter Melissa Lauren has smoothly made the transition from veteran swing “crooness” to songwriter. The music – her own brand of old school jazz, Do-wap and blues mixed with Indie pop inflections and sounds; very much a product of her early musical training meeting her adult musical encounters.
Her latest project, “The Little Ones” is an audience crafted collection of songs. Curated after a series of house concerts and a Canadian Tour, the repertoire or “playlist” consists of the songs that resonated most with listeners.
Songs include the gentle pop groove of “The Little Ones” a dedication to her three-year-old daughter in which she addresses her future loves, as well as danceable blues paired best with electric effects, and a torch song and Willie Nelson cover. The (unreleased) folk/pop “Eyes Open” was awarded runner up in the North American Song and Lyric Competition. Pairing with her husband, guitarist Nathan Hiltz, the live show is charming, and calls people from all walks of life to trust their hearts to Lauren’s frank yet soothing word puzzles, and Hiltz’ deep grounding in rich harmony and supportive groove. The touring format includes bass and drums for larger stages and festivals.
