Singer Songwriter Melanie EdwardsOn the foothills of releasing her award-winning single WHAT HAPPENED and seven years, to the day, after debuting her EP BETWEEN THE BINARY, musical scientist MELANIE EDWARDS releases her 10th album BETWEEN THE BINARY (COLLECTOR’S EDITION); a remastered version of her initial record with unreleased, never-before-heard demos, B-sides, live recordings and studio instrumentals. Channeling the shadow side, Edwards commands the attention of her listeners, captivating them with her haunting vocals, intricate compositions and songbird melodies. In person, spectators are glued to Edwards’s intriguing hands as they dance down the ivory keys. Edwards’s comedic interludes make every performance a theatrical experience for her audiences and not just another songstress playing the piano.

Classically trained in piano, violin and voice since the early age of nine, Edwards’s collection of songs showcases an authentic, dynamic musical concoction that reminds listeners what real talent sounds like. Edwards’s BETWEEN THE BINARY (COLLECTOR’S EDITION) is void of over-produced, “microwaved” compilations delivering a buzz-worthy revisit.
