Melanie Durrant is an award-winning Canadian soul-singer who embodies real artistry through her very unique, edgy and soulful music style. Born and raised in Toronto, Durrant attended the Earl Haig School of the Arts and trained at the Royal Conservatory of Music. Citing influences that range from the soulful swoon of Minnie Ripperton, to the powerful voice of Aretha Franklin, to the “mercy me” melodies of Marvin Gaye, the radiant singer/songwriter has no problems crashing through the wall of sound. In 2021, Durrant wrote and released her third album entitled “Where I’m At.” Infused with vintage 90s R&B, boom-bap, soul and faint sounds of Latin and reggae, the album expresses raw heartfelt emotion drawing from personal experiences of Durrant and her closest friends. Throughout her career, this 3-time JUNO nominee has garnered a list of music accolades. Early in her career, Durrant’s single “Bang Bang” won Canadian Single of the Year at the legendary DJ Stylus Awards. In 2013, the singer began an impressive run at the JUNO Awards with her first nomination for the single “Made For Love.” The following year, she earned her second nod for the infectious single “Gone.” Then in 2015, Durrant continued her trailblazing career with a 3rd consecutive JUNO nomination for the song “Four Seasons” off her critically acclaimed album, Anticipation. The album peaked at #5 on the Canadian iTunes R&B chart, landed a #1 spot on campus radio, saw a Top 20 spot on the national Earshot! Chart, and was streamed 4 million times world-wide.
