Canada’s 'voice like chocolate’, Melanie Dekker, hails from Deep Cove, N. Vancouver. Her dutch background handed her an easy-going and sassy style, and her country roots melded with her jazz music education to create somewhat of a roots-pop sensation. Dekker tours a shedload, especially in Northern Europe, and her songs weave between emotion and sensibilities as they tug on your heart and leave you smiling. 20.03.2018 ‘Secret Spot’ was fresh out of the gates, this is her 6th studio album and it was supported by Creative BC and the Province of British Columbia. Along with Dekker’s new duet Christmas single ("For Christmas” with Jim Byrnes), the album is playing on radio stations in both Canada & Europe. Her past CDs also have fabulous accolades: 'Distant Star' sold 12 000 copies and "Revealed' was produced by David Kershenbaum (Tracy Chapman, Joe Jackson).
Her high energy band “DEKKER” needs almost no introduction. They are all B.C boys who eat & breath music. Co-writer & producer Allan Rodger is on bass, he has played over 200 shows with Melanie and loves to ride his bike or steer a ship. Pat Steward who is like a brother to Allan, is on drums, and he has performed world-wide and in class with Bryan Adams, Colin James and then some. Eric Reed, on guitar, has known Melanie since kindergarten and lives his life on stage, in his studio, or on his telemark skis.
Musical diversity. Sunshine. Love & soulfulness. Combine all this with an entertainer whose blithe spirit has created fantastic award-winning songs. Dekker has opened for Bryan Adams, Faith Hill & Chaka Khan and now she will crush you gently and vivaciously with her songs and world class percussive guitar style. This show will surely fire up your heart.
