About

Cannelle

Singer/Songwriter

Cannelle is French for Cinnamon - it's also the stage name chosen by Melissa Oliveri, who came to Minneapolis from Montreal, Canada in 2006, bringing with her an eclectic mix of both French- and English- Canadian cultures.

Her diverse influences range from Alternative music like Pixies and PJ Harvey, to French artists like France Gall, Serge Gainsbourg, and Jean Leloup, and women songwriters like Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap, Tori Amos, and Amanda Palmer.

Having experienced an important loss as a child and lived through the grief that ensued, her songs often tug on the heartstrings, but she can also write about everyday life situations from a humorous angle. Whether playing a silly song about her favourite snacks, dreaming about living among palm trees, or softly singing an ode to a departed loved one, her songs will make you feel exactly what she wants you to feel.

Embers and Ash

I’ll be gone from the wreckage Leaving it all behind Holding fast to the water Slipping through my fingers

It’s the wrong time, the wrong time, the wrong time for us

Twisted hearts in the rubble Split

Embers and Ash

I’ll be gone from the wreckage Leaving it all behind Holding fast to the water Slipping through my fingers

It’s the wrong time, the wrong time, the wrong time for us

Twisted hearts in the rubble Split souls in their wake We were tired and troubled Star crossed and ill fated

It’s the wrong time, the wrong time, the wrong time for us

It can’t be time to say goodbye (don’t go)

I’ll hold on to the embers Burning in my palm ‘Til they’re nothing but ashes Floating under the same sun

It was the wrong time, the wrong time The wrong time for us
