Frostbyte Media’s Artist Melissa Bel’s Distance Tops French-Canadian Jazz Radio CIBL

Quebec, Canada, May 26, 2012 --( FrostByte Media Inc. has received reports from CIBL 101.5 Radio-Montreal that Melissa Bel’s Distance is number one on the CIBL jazz and blues chart. The Montreal Jazz FM radio station provides French language radio and artists unheard anywhere else on the dial. Bel tops the chart with Distance as Joel Miller’s Swim and Trio Sylvain Picard’s Airs a Faire Frire rounds the top three this week.

Melissa was also the artist of the day on the Sympatico French blog, EnMusique:

"To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much when I received Melissa Bel’s EP. Another cute girl singing love songs like hundreds of others, I thought, judging by the cover. I sure wasn’t expecting to be blown away by such a rich voice, powerful (Joyride) and emotional (Distance). Nothing revolutionary here but that’s just it, blues is rarely an audacious genre: the closer to its roots, the better. And that’s exactly what Bel does."
- Nicolas Pelletier, Editor and Social Media Strategist at EnMusique and Sympatico

You can read the original quote in French here:

For her sophomore album, Distance, Bel pours her heart out into six songs that are expected to bring her name and music into homes across North America and Europe. The record includes “Over And Done With,” a resolute, wash-your-hands-of-him break-up song and also a stirring rendition of Bill Withers’ 1971 classic “Ain’t No Sunshine.” The avenues in sound and emotion explored on this record will resonate with audiences everywhere.
