Bridget Melody is a Toronto based Indie/folk singer/songwriter and visual artist.
Armed with powerful vocals and a distinctive style, Bridget captivates audiences with engaging songs that stir the soul, challenge the conscience and elevate the spirit.
Drawing from her Indigenous roots - Mi'kmaq from her mother's lineage, an integral part of Bridget Melody’s artistry comes from her deep connection to land and spirit along with a driving passion to exalt truth and beauty.
In collaboration with award winning producer/arranger Chris Birkett, and with support from the Ontario Arts Council, Bridget released her debut album ‘Spirit Dance’ on March 11, 2021 and without skipping a beat is now preparing to start work on a follow up album called ‘Spirit Song’. The inspiration for this collective body of work comes from the realization of a cry rising forth from the depths of our collective spirit to see love, truth, justice and redemption established in our society and land. These themes prevail throughout each song carrying a message of hope and inciting a call to action for the healing and restoration of humanity and nature.
Pre-Covid, Bridget was actively performing around town at various coffee houses and open stage venues, with regular performances at the Toronto Public Library for their ongoing series Urban Folk Art Salon which showcases local poets, songwriters and story-tellers.
Bridget has also made appearances on Radio shows such as 106.5FM The ELMNT ~ The Spirit of Toronto , 100.9 FM Tales from the Big Canoe, The Undiscovered Show on CIUT 89.5FM and on CJRU The Scope for a segment of Songtalk Radio as well as received airplay on numerous Community/Campus Stations across Canada and Internationally.
Most recently, Bridget has released a dance remix of her song Rise Up produced by up and coming EDM artist/producer Eeladias.
