MELANIE BRANTON
GOOD CANARY
MARIKA JOSEF

***

Melanie Brandton

Slaloming between belly laughs and gut-punching candour, Melanie Branton’s poems cover love, class, failure, stubbornness and her thirty-year failed quest for a boyfriend. She has appeared at festivals including WOMAD, the Bristol Poetry Festival and the Wolverhampton Literary festival and has represented Bristol in three national slam finals. She has two collections: Can You See Where I'm Coming From? (Burning Eye, 2018) and My Cloth-Eared Heart (Oversteps, 2017)

“A fantastic poet with a great mix of dry humour and real-life heart and emotion.”

- Harry Baker

“Melanie Branton is an unexpected poetry slap. The kind that makes your face tingle and your eyebrows sky rocket. She is funny, clever, ironic, dry, gripping, needed and you won’t see her coming until she is standing in your face.” - Liv Torc

Good Canary

Good Canary sings gallows-humour lyrics over electro-pop riffs: she believes that, like a canary in a coalmine, a song can be an excellent warning. She's been featured by BBC Radio 6 and regularly plays and hosts DIY shows in London and Oxford. Her first EP, 'Afraid to Dance', is out in July on Gare du Nord (Deerful, Ralegh Long) and is produced by Grace Banks (Austra, Let's Eat Grandma, Max Richter). She's been compared to St Vincent, Victoria Wood, and "a woman about to go postal with the contents of the cutlery drawer" (Nightshift Magazine), and will happily be described as anything other than 'quirky.' She's a pianist at heart but she uses Ableton and various tiny synths to create a weird sonic world. You'll laugh, but you'll also be unsettled.
