The General Electryk are a folk-alt-indie-rock band featuring singer/songwriter/guitarist Melanie McDonald and drummer/backing vocalist Angus Donnelly. Melanie's vocal style is an eclectic mix of blues-pop. Hooks are catchy, the backline is funk rock driven and the melody is contagiously sweet. With busking roots, this duo incorporates elements of creativity and fun using vintage luggage as drums. Like Dallas Green meets Natalie Merchant. Music for travelling folk. This debut album "Petty Little Things" was recorded by Glenn Forrester of Barstool Prophets fame, and includes tracks like "Grampa (He Was a Mighty Man)" - a bluegrass homage to Melanie's late grandfather, and "Brûlée"- written about Melanie's long lost uncle and sung in both French and English.
