Haitian-Canadian Mélissa Laveaux is a self-assured artist that combines folk, indie pop and her signature percussive finger-style blues guitar for a style that is both sophisticated and sweet on her new EP Memory Is A Strange Bell, which is out now.

"I always thought of Emily Dickinson as a wise poet for being able to concisely convey overwhelming sentiments," Laveaux said of the influences on her new EP."The exercise of carefully culling a handful of songs together into an EP was no easy feat. I aimed for both ends of the spectrum, my happiest and my darkest neatly tucked in between verses."

Sung in Creole, the EP's final track "Pie Bwa" is a variation on Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit", written from the point of view of the blood-stained tree. Containing powerful imagery, modern orchestrations, catchy melodies and intimate prose, Memory Is A Strange Bell simultaneously touches the heart, the mind and the core. Listen and share the track HERE.

New York fans also have the opportunity to see Melissa perform "Pie Bwa" and the rest of the tracks from Memory Is A Strange Bell tomorrow night at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn and December 9th at Rockwood.
