Melanie Hammet: Home⎟


"Melanie Hammet is the updated, female version of Billy Bragg, she's Tom Waits minus the cool beard, plus the angelic whop; her tone, at once melodic and emphatic. She is post modern folk, which is to say simultaneously, post punk. Her prescription for humanity picks up where Joe Strummer left off. Wake up, America! Melanie Hammet is going to sing some songs for you."

--Frank Giampietro, poet ( 2010-2012 resident scholar at The Southern Review
