Toronto singer and songwriter Melanie Peterson just released her latest EP "Two" on July 26th and held a show at The Artists' Garden to celebrate. She was kind enough to answer a few of my questions. Check out our Q&A below:
What is the inspiration behind your new EP?
The inspiration for this new EP is the life I've been living while going for my dreams in Toronto. I've poured my heart and soul into these songs and they both reflect an aspect of love that I have had personal experience with in recent years.
Are you hoping listeners will feel a certain way?
I'm hoping the listeners will relate to the songs in a personal way and think, yes, I get that, I've felt that way before, or even, I'm feeling that way right now.
What do you have planned next?
In August I am playing summer dates in Ontario, and then the plan is to release my third full-length album in waves. ‘Two’, released July 14, 2017, was the first installment. I want to make as ambitious an album as possible, doing things I have never done before musically and lyrically. And I'm hoping people will like these two songs enough to get the next four, and are engaged enough to come along with me and ride every single wave.
