WINNIPEG'S independent folk scene is rich with all kinds of talented artists working hard trying to get a leg up and move their careers even just a little bit forward. One such diamond amongst the proverbial coal is Rheanna Melnick, who now goes by the name Feed the Birds.
With able tuneful support from family members and friends, she has moved past her former incarnation as Ryelee to an area of musical confidence and lightness. Catcher is the kind of easy on the ears treat that, when drifting through your sound system, will immediately push out any negativity that may be gnawing at your psyche. Her bright, yet warm falsetto singing style and charismatic folk-pop musings reveal a deeper meaning every listen, and while she doesn't break any new ground in the genre, she should catch some accolades when the festival season begins this summer. 3 stars
