Distant Star is the premier song and the title of Melanie’s vibrant album that provides more roots music style than what we’ve heard in her previous albums. “A Distant Star feels as far away and as close as you imagine, and all of the songs have this subjectivity, ambiguity, and sense of light while fumbling in the darkness of life.”
A voice like chocolate. Musical diversity. Power. Sunshine. Love & soulfulness. Combine all this with an entertainer, whose blithe spirit has created fantastic songs and 6 albums. Singer-songwriter Melanie Dekker from Vancouver, Canada will move you with her lyrics and world class percussive guitar style. She’s been the support act for Bryan Adams, Russell Peters, & Faith Hill. Her tunes will surely take you on a ride and fire up your heart.
If you enjoyed Distant Star, then Melanie’s editor recommends checking out her song “Give My Heart a Home.” The song gives a sense of longing and tugs at the heart. If you want something uplifting, upbeat, and fun to follow along then you can check out “Worry Gets You Nowhere.” You can find these songs and more online on her website.
Ulli Koebe filmed this in the beautiful Mallorca, Spain.
