So, I had the pleasure of seeing Melanie Faye in early April as she supported Maggie Rogers on her US tour, and I was nothing less than blown away. The second Melanie steps on stage, guitar in hand, you can feel the energy in the room spike, everyone left in awe of her raw talent. Being titled ‘the new face of guitar’ by Fender, this 21 year old has had all eyes on her. With mentions in Forbes and major support from fellow musicians, the spotlight hasn’t dimmed after she went viral seemingly overnight. Since this sudden surge in followers and fans, Faye has been gracefully moving through the ‘what next?’ steps of internet fame, documenting her ever-expanding skill set and releasing her debut single, “Eternally 12”. This first formal step onto the music scene incorporates a masterful blend of R&B and pop nuances, and is bringing out every bit of soul she has through her funky guitar and groovy production. As a new artist For Melanie this is only the beginning, and we can’t wait to see what else she has up her sleeve.
