Melanie Durrant (born in Toronto) producer/singer was nominated in several categories at the 2004 Canadian Urban Music Awards. Melanie Durrant has collaborated with artists such as Kardinal Offishall, Choclair, and Common.
Melanie Durrant has also been involved with numerous educational initiatives, such as headlining the ‘HipHop4Africa’ Mandela Children’s Fund Canada and CapAids February 2006 Toronto benefit which was hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos. Deejay Ra, who interviewed Melanie for the event’s DVD, also did a live reading at the sold-out event as part of his ‘Hip-Hop Literacy’ program, promoting Mandela and Tupac books to the students in attendance.
“Music takes me anywhere and everywhere mentally,” says Durrant. “It sounds like I’m nuts!” she laughs, but fellow musicians certainly understand where she’s coming from.
