SINGER/SONGWRITER | Melanie 

Though she's flown a bit under the big time's radar for the past few decades, singer-songwriter Melanie has racked up the accolades and an impressive resume. She has taken the stage at Woodstock, Carnegie Hall, and Royal Albert Hall. She's had her material covered by artists like Cher, Dolly Parton, and Macy Gray. She's sold more than 80 million records to date and has been awarded a Grammy and an Emmy. And in fall of 2012, Rochester's own Blackfriars Theatre premiered a musical devoted to her life and music. And if that doesn't get you, how about her whimsical tune "Brand New Key" — you know, "I've got a brand new pair of roller skates, you've got a brand new key..."

Melanie performs Tuesday, May 7, 8 p.m. at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Place. $22-$25. lovincup.com.
