"Melanie Ida Chopko has that precious and rare quality that we long for in our artists… a unique way of seeing. Happily she also has the grace of melody and words to communicate it to us." Rachel Efron, songwriter & producer
Melanie Ida Chopko writes and performs "with wit, acuity and grace.” Her songs on guitar and piano feature astute lyrics and melody, a sort of modern folk with a big crush on everything else. If Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone and Rebecca Solnit were neighbors and made music on Sunday afternoons, it might sound like this. In the tradition of the citizen artist, Melanie is as interested in the complexity of the world around her as the one within herself, exploring both with artistry, intimacy and humor.
