About Melanie Charles
Melanie Charles is a Brooklyn-born singer, songwriter, bandleader, producer, actress, and flautist of Haitian descent, with a creative fluidity spanning jazz, soul, experimental, and roots music. Charles was raised by a Haitian mother in Brooklyn where the sound waves in their home were filled with artists like Johnny Hodges, Frank Sinatra, Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, John Coltrane, and Nat King Cole. As a teen, she attended the famed LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts where she studied flute and vocals. Eventually, she landed at the School of Jazz and Contemporary Music at The New School where she met artists like singer, songwriter, and record producer Jesse Boykins III and alto saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin.

Charles’ genre-bending style has been embraced by a wide range of artists including Wynton Marsalis, SZA, Mach-Hommy, Gorillaz, and The Roots.

Throughout her career, she has remained committed to making music that pushes listeners to consider new possibilities, both socially and politically. “Make Jazz Trill Again,” a project that she launched in 2016, demonstrates her allegiance to everyday people, especially the youth, and is focused on taking jazz from the museum to the streets. Earlier this year, Charles’ Tiny Desk (Home) Concert debuted on NPR Music, which proclaimed, “Melanie Charles takes us on a journey that embodies the soul of jazz: exploration.”

Her improvisational style, inflection, and spontaneity talents displayed in the celebrated Y’all Don’t (Really) Care About Black Women album is nothing short of brilliant and a must-add to your playlist – ‘a sheer ‘masterpiece.’

Through it all, she has remained committed to making music that pushes listeners to consider new possibilities—both sonically and politically. “Make Jazz Trill Again,” a project that she launched in 2016, demonstrates her allegiance to everyday people, especially the youth, and is focused on taking jazz from the museum to the streets.

“I love jazz, I really fell in love with it deeply. But I was interested in young people interacting with it,” Charles says. The album Y’all Don’t (Really) Care About Black Women is reflective of Charles’ tremendous versatility and imagination as an artist but of also her deep care for the community.

She recently released Hotel San Claudio. The project with revered composer, pianist, DJ, and two decade-long bridge between jazz, dance, and hip-hop, Mark de Clive-Lowe (MdCL), and Detroit drummer/producer/DJ, Shigeto is a spiritual jazz, live deconstructed beats, including a three-track set of Pharoah Sanders reinterpretations ‘masterpiece.’

When we asked Melanie about her dream for jazz music, she says it is seeing jazz become the music that people are dancing to in the clubs.

The multi-instrumentalist and vocalist is featured on celebrated drummer Terri Lyne Carrington’s album, New Standards Vol. 1, which won a 2023 Grammy award in the Best Jazz Instrumental Album category.

Melanie says, “When Terri, one of the biggest and most important drummers alive today and such a mentor and lover of the next generation brought me in to sing on an arrangement of Throw It Away, I was so honored to be on the New Standards Vol. 1 album – a great memorable moment for me.”
