Podcast: The Jazz Colloquies Ep3: Melorie Jane

In the latest episode of The Jazz Colloquies podcast series, Mzantsi Jazz Awards Best Jazz Female Artist and Best Jazz Album accolades holder Melorie Jane joins Areh to discuss the music and events scene in the city of Pretoria and the room for growth in such regard. Their chat also touches on the music(al) influences of Melorie in her early days prior to her undergrad days at the University of Pretoria.

Melorie also speaks on life as an artist in the Franschhoek and Cape Town area, in addition to breaking down the “contemporary” jazz artist title and the compositions and thinking behind her award winning album, More or Less.

“My Pretoria home girl! I was really excited going into this chat given that it would be at the time our first ever proper interaction which also meant I was going into it with full curiosity. I think we were able to touch on a lot of really interesting sub-topics within a short period of time. Thoroughly enjoyed this episode and again I reiterate as I did several times on the recording, I am a fan of Melorie and her work.”
