4 Songs by Melanie Doane

Florivox will be performing some of Melanie Doane's work at This Woman's Work on Sun, May 24, Florivox' final concert of the season.

Here are some of her videos included at Sunday's performance:

Adam's Rib

Happy Homemaker

The Stupider I Am

Every Little Thing

An accomplished singer, songwriter, musician, and performer - Juno Award winning Melanie Doane has been prominent in the Canadian music landscape for over 15 years. She has released seven albums, written many chart topping singles (“Adam’s Rib”, “Goliath”, “Still Desire You”, etc.), had her music featured on hit TV shows such as Brothers and Sisters, Being Erica, Flashpoint, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and traveled numerous times across Canada and the U.S. on various tours, both as a solo artist and opening for Jann Arden, Great Big Sea, and Sarah McLachlan.

In 2012, Melanie was cast as the Songwoman in the Tony-award winning play "WAR HORSE", performing 8 shows a week for a year at the Princess of Wales Theatre. Following "WAR HORSE", Melanie embarked on CPR’s Holiday Train Tour, performing 80 shows in three weeks across Canada in support of local food banks. This was Melanie’s fourth time performing on the tour.

Last year, Melanie officially launched Uschool, her music education program that currently serves over 400 students in Toronto elementary schools. Uschool is based off of Melanie's father's (Chalmers Doane) famous Ukulele in the Classroom program. Chalmers is an Order of Canada recipient for his contributions to music education.

While not teaching or being a busy mom to Theo and Rosie, Melanie continues to write and record new music and loves performing live. Her new single "Up To The Light" is available on iTunes now.
