New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Melbreeze was born in the historic port city of Smyrna, Turkey - home to illustrious Greek and Roman settlements. As a only child, she grew up in a house where music flowed freely and she found company in art.

Her first foray into performance was through ballet, which she started learning when she was five years old and pursued for many years to come. After completing her academic education, having majored in Business Administration as an undergrad and going to the United States for further education, Melbreeze focused on raising her own family.

Melbreeze's love for music though never wavered and she dreamed that one day she could do the kind of music she wanted. And now, after many years of training, expectations, love and dedication, she is sharing all her thoughts and feelings that she kept hidden inside for years for the release of her ninth album titled, Animazonia (produced by Jimmy Haslip and Scott Kinsey).

Vocalist and Visual Artist Melbreeze to release eight Single Albums starting on May 11th through June 29th exclusively in the Blue Canoe Records Store. Each Single Album release will include audio (wave and 320 MP3) and a unique Melbreeze portrait, chosen personally from the Official Melbreeze collection. This is a Blue Canoe Records exclusive and this album/portrait offering is only available in our store. The entire thirteen song album titled, Animazonia, will be released on July 6th, 2018 in both digital and physical forms at all leading digital and physical retail outlets.

Early Reviews:
As unique as her name, Melbreeze is impassioned and ignited in her pursuit to be a creative and groundbreaking artist. It is a clear path for her, as this trailblazing vocalist has clearly teamed with the right production lineup of Jimmy Haslip and Scott Kinsey for an end result that is a magnificent listen. -All About Vocals

The album is a different approach to 'Latin Jazz', one that you could identify with the pop and funk singer Grace Mendoza aka Grace Jones. -Rootsville

Fabulous vocalist who delivers more than expected and in a manner so unique in arrangements and orchestrations that she just rises to top. -Amazon Top 100 Reviewer - Hall of fame - 5/5 Stars
