Melanie Fiona...Bridging the gap

You may have heard her name on music blogs or scene her feature article in Nylon magazine or even watched her special on Carson Daily Live. If your still asking yourself who is Melanie Fiona the answer is simple. She is the latest artist to be signed to SRC/Universal Motown and her debut single "Give it to me right" is blowing up the music charts everywhere. Why should you love her? Well not only is Melanie Fiona a Toronto native from Guyanese roots her sound is something we havent heard in awhile. Her debut album "The Bridge" explains it perfectly, she bridges the gap in music bringing soul, funk, reggae, hip hop, rnb and much more to one collective sound. Her unique sound was enough to catch the attention of Kanye West who brought her out on his European tour also she has been the featured MySpace artist to watch. I really recommend giving her a listen, you can catch her song "Give it to me right" on Flow93.5 and check out her Myspace or Facebook pages where she regularly updates with intimate videos so you can get to know her more. If you like what you hear, her debut album "The Bridge" is set for release sometime in the spring. Hope you enjoy her music, I know i am a huge fan already.
