Mel Kubik: Inspirationista, Muse-Wrangler, Singer of Stories, Writer of Songs, Ivory-Tickler, Sax Empress
This ubiquitous Pacific NW singer-songwriter, pianist, saxophonist, producer and composer is a rare combination of sass and sensitivity. Stylistically, she easily walks through walls and establishes herself solidly in ANY genre she chooses.
Her melodies are set in any style that the lyric is calling for, be it sultry southern rock, early jazz, goth, country, ambient, or something you’d expect to hear in a French cafe. Her voice captures your imagination and permeates your inner world long into the night after you’ve stopped listening. This is a journey worth taking.
Though she has lent her innumerable talents and skills to countless others, and she remains a member of 80's pop band, Quarterflash, she is offering her newest SOLO venture under her OWN name, showcasing her artistry as songwriter, singer, pianist/multi-instrumentalist, storyteller, and consumate entertainer...occasionally collaborating with masterful guitarist and pedal steel player, Christopher Woitach.
She currently has 3 CDs in her personal discography, “Pigeon,” her first and critically acclaimed solo CD (on Swallowhard Records), “Jungle Nights” with the Shanghai Woolies (on American Gavabun Records), and her current new release “Naked Songs” (for Screamin Tornado Music).
