Near the beginning of 2017 I discovered a young guitarist on instagram that had some serious chops, Melanie Faye, who only had a few short clips of her playing guitar on her bedroom floor. The short instagram and youtube videos left me and many others wanting more.
Over the past year her online popularity has lead her to many amazing opportunities, from playing on stage to meeting some of her childhood heroes, like Bibi McGill, former lead guitarist for Beyonce.
She just recently released an instrumental jam with Mac Demarco called Eternally 12.
And here she is opening for Masego a few weeks ago.
This young artist is blowing up quick in a big way, keep an eye out for Melanie Faye as she gets off her bedroom floor and makes her way to the top with her soulful style and jazzy licks.
