Melissa Mills is a Boston based vocalist serenading audiences with sweet harmonies and powerhouse vocals. Her original music creates an R&B landscape that envelopes with emotion and energy.
You won’t hear any love songs in Savoir Faire’s corner of the cocktail lounge. Boston artist Sarah Fard prefers to seduce her listeners’ minds, serving them new perspectives atop melodies smooth as a whiskey sour. With her solo project Savoir Faire, Fard constructs plush headspaces for audiences to grapple with the most pressing issues of our time. Interweaving dramatic 60s noir, pointed 90s rock, classic elements of jazz, Fard’s guitar-driven music envelops listeners in nostalgia, taking a sonic step backwards to push society forwards. Her razor-sharp lyricism cuts to the insidious core of issues like misogynistic language, America’s aching and under-appreciated workforce, and reproductive rights. Delivered with her syrupy vocals, Savoir Faire’s messages will entice your attention, time and time again — right before they demand a better future.
