Melissa Weikart Announces Signing With Northern Spy Records

French/American vocalist, pianist, and composer Melissa Weikart today announced officially signing to Northern Spy Records and shared a new song. With “Diamond,” Weikart offers a peek into her upcoming debut album (her first release with Northern Spy). Accompanied solely by her piano, Weikart weaves a Brothers Grimm-like tale of a human who finds a precious stone — a diamond that represents true romance and mystical beauty. So powerful is this diamond that the human is put under its spell, pulled in by the weight of this immaculate discovery. Following in the footsteps of legends like Tori Amos and Regina Spektor, Weikart’s musical approach is shaped by her passion for experimental vocal harmony and formative training as a classical pianist. Melissa’s solo songwriting project has been described as a playfully intimate dialogue between voice and piano, inviting listeners into a rich, raw world of twisted melodies and exposed dissonance.
