There are few artists whose sound can capture the sentiments of a generation quite like Melanie Charles. With her dynamic engagements with jazz, soul, and R&B, her bold, eclectic, and genre-bending style has been embraced by artists like Wynton Marsalis, SZA, Mach-Hommy, Gorillaz, and The Roots. Through it all, she has remained committed to making music that pushes listeners to consider new possibilities—both sonically and politically.
