MAdM Summer Festivals 2011 from MAdM OOOM on Vimeo.

so happy to be invited to play the following summer festivals. all very different and special in their own right.

Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland – July 4th :
Established in 1967 by legendary founder and director to this day Claude Nobs (not to mention old friends of Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis and Frank Zappa). Held in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, with an impeccable artist friendly reputation, this festival invited me back again this year, after the HEART BREAKING EMERGENCY LIGHT FLIGHT CANCELLATION NIGHTMARE MERCI, see you next week!!

Festival d’Ete de Quebec – July 13 :
Quebec’s BIGGEST 10 day long festival hosting Metallica to Elton John has invited me to participate for the first time. It’s a pleasure to share the stage with fellow fantasy freaks and European label mates, Coheed and Cambria. As a native Montrealer and Quebecoise, it took me until last year to play Quebec City for the FIRST TIME! Hole, The Pumpkins, my first solo tour never made it up there, so was i ever blown away by the support and enthusiasm when i arrived there for the first time last fall. MERCI Quebec, je me souvien et va etre de retour bientot!

HEAVY T.O!!!!!!!! – July 24:
Where to i begin????? i am so honored, excited and exploding with i-can’t-fucking-wait energy, to participate in a mirror of the same incredible bill from last year’s HEAVY MTL: SLAYER – ROB ZOMBIE – MASTODON – ANVIL and more…… and what’s even more…. is that i, again, am the sole female front person of the day. representing the feminine love of all things HEAVY and the universal love of magic, myth, metal and mayhem. it’s beyond gender, it’s music. for those of you who missed it last year, please take a peek at MAdM TV Meets Heavy MTL – a half hour of interviews and backstage footage of Team MAdM exploring and loving the grounds of Heavy MTL. stay tuned for the next episode… post HEAVY TO…. this time, not only will i be the only WOMAN on the bill, but the only person capable and currently building life inside. METAL Meets THE MYSTERY OF MOTHERHOOD at HEAVY T.O………… more life coming soon!


hope to see some of you there – as these will be my last shows before i dive into writing my next album and experience true metamorphosis.
2012… around the corner! x

    Hey Melissa

    I want to tell you my dream I had a few nights ago, but the universe does not let me do that. An evil force is in effect, I don’t know.

    Ok, so in that dream I was listening to your record, but the songs recorded on it were none of your songs. They were different, but melodies and rhythms were very familiar to me, and they had your spark and voice within. I would say they sounded like Mother’s Red Box or Willing Enabler. That was confusing to me, to listening to something that seems to be known, but I have never listened to before. You know?
    I woke up and I thought, wow, is it possible that I connected somehow with songs that has not been recorded yet? Because they are already in the air aren’t they? A songs that comes from an other clear place you were taking about in an interviews? Melissa, I’m not worthy, I’m not worthy (Wayne’s world).

    However I believe in the hidden power of mind that comes out of the cage of consciousness only at the time when you’re sleeping. That’s the good explanation for me.

    ps. I saw you in Warsaw on November 30th 2010. Can’t wait to see you back. Hugh hug from Poland across the Atlanic Ocean, unless you’re in Europe now 😉
