“Five Minutes With” Alternative/Rock/Blues Artist MELANIE?

MELANIE? Is one and everyone. She is an artist and a community. A continuum of compassion, empathy and rock and roll. Born of a quest for authenticity, MELANIE? discovered that the search for the self is ongoing and can only ever be complete when we’re in a constant state of questioning everything. It’s why there’s a question mark at the end of her moniker, because certainty is a damn lie. A fool’s errand. Life is a question we’re always struggling to answer. It’s the rip tide of music that MELANIE? performs and the safe space she’s created for her community because her struggle is in everyone she loves and everyone she love’s struggle is in her.

If you shut the world out, it only gets darker. Let MELANIE? in.
