This is me . . . Elisabeth Melander!
My joy and desire to create, as well as artistically express myself, have always been a part of me. And my interest for the arts - music, dance, theatre and fine art - has continuously shaped and enriched my life. Consequently I have worked in many different music genres, for example classical and modern art music. My profile as a professional singer is predominately jazz, but also soul and gospel.
My deep roots in jazz an improvisational music together with my youth experiences of soul, Beatles, pop, rock, soul and gospel have shaped my way to approach and create music. If the doorpost at my home way up north in Sweden was my first stage, others have been concert halls, jazz clubs, festivals, churches and more.
My great interest for cross-artistic encounters, has made me flourished both artistically and pedagogically. In addition to my vocal career I am a lecturer at Malmö Academy of Music in Sweden, teaching singing, ensemble, improvisation and methodology at the Jazz and Rock department.
