FrostByte Media Inc. to Release Singer/Songwriter Melissa Bel’s Latest EP “Distance”

Toronto, Canada, March 02, 2012 --( FrostByte Media Inc. is excited to announce the latest release of Canadian Singer/Songwriter, Melissa Bel’s new EP, "Distance," April 10, 2012.

Her voice has power and soul. It’s a voice all the more remarkable because it belongs to a petite, fresh-faced 22-year old.

Laying the groundwork in Germany with her 2009 debut, Brave, Melissa Bel received widespread radio play, 5/5 stars in the major magazine Melodie & Rhythmus, as well as performing a whirlwind 14 shows in 16 days. Melissa, who performs with a 3 piece band as well as solo with intimate acoustic sets has received critical acclaim from her 2010 tour in Germany and at home here in Canada.

The album, Distance, was produced by Tom Treumuth and also features the guitar work of Sean Ashby who was an integral part of Sarah McLaughlin's band for the past 10 years.

The 6 songs on “Distance” include the slow, bluesy “Over And Done With,” a resolute wash-your-hands of-him break-up song; and her cover of Bill Withers’ 1971 classic “Ain’t No Sunshine.” On the title track, “Distance” Melissa's voice displays a soulful anguish and vividly paints a narrative of a boyfriend pulling away. The Distance EP is rich, smoky, impassioned and powerful, a rarity in the present day pop world.

The singer songwriter currently is performing throughout Ontario with intimate acoustic sets that will include a March 12, 2012 slot opening for Grammy Nominee, Katie Herzig at Toronto’s historic Drake Hotel.

The Distance EP is scheduled to be released and available April 10, 2012.
