Just like powerful music itself, the two-time Grammy Award winner Melanie Fiona exudes soulful charm, wit, and a genuine story-telling ability that expresses both vulnerability and strength. Her distinctive voice has captivated the hearts and minds of countless souls. The Toronto native, who is signed and managed by Title 9 Productions and co-managed by Roc Nation, is creating new awe-inspiring music that promises to infiltrate the psyche of her fans.

Melanie’s 2009 debut, The Bridge, was the formal introduction of what would become her bluesy, soulful signature: melodic tales of empowering emotional rollercoasters. The New York Times named The Bridge one of 2009’s best R&B albums. Her songwriting is braided with sad truths and balanced by glimmers of fulfilling romance; something the young woman firmly believes exists in this crazy world. The album’s breakthrough ballad, “It Kills Me,” topped Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for nine weeks and earned Fiona her first Grammy nomination in 2010 for Best R&B Female Vocal Performance.
