About Alexia Melnychuk
“Alexia Melnychuk’s Flying Machine deserves to be pushed and promoted and distributed..." "...a delightfully refreshing debut..."
“Alexia Melnychuk has something very much in common with some of Canada’s most influential and inspiring singer songwriters but what tends to set her apart... (are) her beautifully mastered vocals and expertly crafted lyrics." "... the girl touches and provokes things in our hearts and souls that we thought were locked away for good!”
Colin Lynch of RCatCommunications - 5 star review of Flying Machine With her second release slated for the summer of 2007, a personal invite to play at Fred Eaglesmith’s Southern Ontario Picnic, and record labels starting to call, Lara Yule Singh’s star is beginning to sparkle.
Lara’s sincere, profound music is subtly unconventional. Her meaningful lyrics and quirky style are delicate, refreshing, avante-folk poetry.
Her debut CD, Something In the Still was released in May 2006. It spent ten weeks in the top 30 on the CKUA Radio charts (www.ckua.com), peaking at 3, just under Paul Simon and T-Bone Burnett.
In between shooting the video for “Amazing Grace Revisited” and pre-production for a second album, Lara was a featured artist on Shaw TV (local), City TV (Alberta-wide), and Help TV (national). She’s opened for Gaye Delorme and shared stages with many other talented musicians across Western Canada. She’s played numerous festivals, including Homefest, North Country Solstice Festival, Sasquatch Festival, and Fred Eaglesmith’s Alberta Festival.
“Lara Yule Singh could be the answer to all our problems. Her folk-pop debut, Something In the Still will instantly put a smile on your face and lower your blood pressure…a delightfully quirky recording on par with efforts by Calgary’s Chad VanGaalen and freak-folk star Devendra Banhart.”–Sandra Sperounes, The Edmonton Journal
