Shortly after the release of The Emerald City in 2011, Doane was asked to audition for the role of “Song Woman” in Mirvish’s Toronto production of the acclaimed play War Horse.

In the summer of 2010, “Sweet on You” reached #1 on the East Coast Countdown, a popular radio show in Atlantic Canada.

Chalmers Doane in the 1960s. Now a registered charity, Doane Uschool ( teaches over 750 students each week in schools throughout Toronto. Melanie lends exposure to her groups through concerts, recording projects and appearances in the PanAm Games, with Chris Hadfield in the International Space Station, the CBC Music Festival and the 2018 Luminato Festival.


In 2007 she Doane began working on an album that was inspired by motherhood. Initially dubbed a lullaby album, the resulting independent release A Thousand Nights had much wider appeal, mixing covers by Fleetwood Mac, The Everly Brothers, and Leonard Cohen with originals by Doane and including guests Jim Cuddy, Ron Sexsmith, Kathryn Rose, Emilie-Claire Barlow, and Ted Dykstra. Released in 2008, A Thousand Nights was preceded by the lead single “Songbird” featuring Cuddy, which became a Top 5 hit on the iTunes country singles chart in Canada.

The title song became the album’s first Top 40 hit, followed by “Waiting for the Tide”, “Goliath”, and “Happy Homemaker”.
