With a bold, genre-bending style that’s been embraced by Wynton Marsalis, SZA, Mach-Hommy, Gorillaz, and the Roots, Melanie Charles has made a name for herself through her dynamic engagements with jazz, soul, and R&B. NPR has declared “Melanie Charles takes us on a journey that embodies the soul of jazz: exploration.”

There are very few artists whose sound can capture the sentiments of a generation. Brooklyn born and raised Melanie Charles is one such artist. In 2021, Charles appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk and stunned with her eclectic style. Through it all, she has remained committed to making music that pushes listeners to consider new possibilities, both sonically and politically.

“Make Jazz Trill Again,” a project that she launched in 2016, demonstrates her allegiance to everyday people — especially the youth — and is focused on taking jazz from the museum to the streets. The album Y’all Don’t (Really) Care About Black Women is reflective of Charles’ tremendous versatility and imagination as an artist but also her deep care for community.
