The voice of a generation

Melanie first attracted national attention when she stepped onto the stage at Woodstock, the summer of '69. As dawn broke, and rain began to fall, she performed on a stage that transformed a generation and changed music forever.  Check out the "tour" page for a complete list of upcoming shows.

"We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside each others wounds
We all had caught the same disease
and we all sang the songs of peace

Some came to sing, some came to pray
Some came to keep the dark away

So raise your candles high
'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the sky
Oh raise them higher again
And if you do, we could stay dry against the rain"

-- from "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)"

Miley Records Melanie!

Miley records "Look What They've Done to My Song", for Lina Esco's upcoming film "Free The Nipple", a Sundance Select satire to screen in 2015. Cyrus recorded the song last August in two takes. She’s performed “Look What They’ve Done to My Song, Ma” before, but this version—produced by Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes—sounds different. “It’s more rock ‘n’ roll,” Esco says. “It’s very Johnny Cash. Her voice is so raw, and the song is so raw.” Read the Variety article here!

Keeping up with Melanie

 

"Look what they done to my song, ma
Look what they done to my song
It was the only thing that I could do half right
And it's turning out all wrong, ma
Look what they done to my song

Look what they done to my brain, ma
Look what they done to my brain
They picked it like a chicken bone
And I think I'm half insane, ma
Look what they done to my song"

--from "Look What They Done to My Song, Ma"
