Melanie De Biasio is the exact opposite of the functional "hotel singer": her whole life seems focussed in the lyrics of her songs, delivered with strength and conviction. It is no coincidence, finding Nina Simone and Billie Holiday among her references. But also the suave Julie London. Melanie De Biasio is a creator of space, taking after Miles Davis, faultlessly aiming for sobriety, and a master of the tricky art of ballads. On her first album, "A Stomach is Burning" (Igloo, dist AMG), she has even transposed her ballad mastery to some faster tempos. When she performed live "I'm gonna love you, like nobody's loved you, come rain or come shine", we found her thoroughly convincing, even though we had fallen for the same lines, when sung by Billie Holiday. But here, the belgian singer is covering new grounds, in her own words, digging in her personal emotions, her doubts as a young woman in this time and age, modern and eternal. A new adventure begins...
