Melanie Doane was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and is a Juno Award winning Canadian pop singer-songwriter with four Top 40 singles. Raised in a musical home -- her father is Chalmers Doane, an Order of Canada-winning music educator -- Doane mastered many instruments, including the piano, bass, mandolin and violin at a young age. In 1993, she recorded an EP titled Harvest Train and released it independently. The songs made their way to executives at Sony Music in Canada and soon after, she found herself under contract to Sony and working on a debut album, Shakespearean Fish.

Adam's Rib, her second album with Sony, was released in Canada in 1998. The self-titled first single, a rocking anthem about a rib wanting to have its own independence from a man, displayed Doane's vocal and violin talents. The song was a radio success, and Doane earned a spot on the Lilith Fair concert tour. The following year, she walked away with the 1999 Juno Award for Best New Solo Artist, and Adam's Rib was released in the United States under the Columbia Records label. Doane took a break from recording to have a baby and work on other projects, including writing for other artists and acting in the independent film Black Swan. She also released a live album, Melvin Live, featuring Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies in 2001. The song posted features Robertson as well. In 2000 Doane signed with ActorBoy Records, an independent label created by her husband, theatre director and actor, Ted Dykstra, and actor, Gary Sinise. Her subsequent album, You Are What You Love, was released that year by Warner Music Canada. The music video for her single "Still Desire You" featured clips from her role in Black Swan.
