Discovery: Melanie MacLaren

Deep Dark Sleep is a haunting, meditative folk song from American singer-songwriter and musician, Melanie MacLaren.

By Jane Howkins

Melanie’s music combines together elements of folk, Americana and country music, making something that sounds utterly beautiful in the process. It’s quite a simplistic song, but this only serves to make it sound more haunting. Melanie’s vocals soar over the acoustic guitar melodies, really helping to elevate the music into anthemic territory – see for yourselves below!
