Soft, crunchy, salty and sweet, Melinda’s songbook is a trail mix of textures and flavors that comment on the joys, challenges, humor and ironies of the human condition. Though many of her songs emerge from personal experiences, she enjoys stepping into the skin of others to write from a variety of perspectives, thus giving her material a diverse array of viewpoints. Her driving rhythmic guitar playing, skillful vocal stylings and sheer energy draws fans to her performances again and again. Be it in a large hall or small café, Melinda DiMaio’s sound invites her listeners in and makes each feel as if she were singing to him or her alone.
