Melanie Page is a singer and songwriter from the Midlands (England). Inspired by the quiet grandeur of life and the solemnity of death, Melanie's music connects the everyday to the infinte. The songs on her album Mother's Children capture thoughts on family, friendship, domestic and open spaces in ways that reveal unexpected light and shadow.
Raised in the folk-guitar tradition and blessed with a voice that is at once rich and breathy, Melanie has crafted a sound that combines the rustic stylings of Anne Briggs with a dedication to refined melody and harmony that is reminiscent of Fleet Foxes.
Melanie is joined live and on record by Chris Thornhill (Old Joy), whose electric guitar adds forlorn drones and melodic shimmers that drift through the songs and reveal their harmonic depths.
