Melaena Cadiz is a Brooklyn-based songwriter originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan, who plays a dreamy sort of Americana/folk. Collaboration and exposure for friends is a common theme for Cadiz, as her live band often includes other talented solo musicians and members of bands. Taking the cross-pollination even further, her current monthly Singles Project pairs songs with the work of her visual artist friends. For this episode of BTR Hear & There, we visited Melaena Cadiz at her home in Brooklyn for an intimate solo performance of the Singles song from March.
Featured song: “Silver Hours”
The Singles Project, by Melaena Cadiz is currently underway, which includes the release of a new song and accompanying artwork each month. Her next album, Deep Below Heaven, will be released in the Spring of 2014.
