RANEE LEE is now celebrating over 40 years in Montreal, Quebec, where she enjoys a successful, multi-faceted career as one of Canada’s most popular jazz vocalists, an award-winning actress, a songwriter, and a proud author of children’s books. Ranee has recorded thirteen albums for Justin Time, a proud discography of acclaimed recordings that feature some of the finest jazz musicians of our time among its sidemen.

MELANIE POWER is the author of Full Moon of Afraid and Craving (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2022). Her work has appeared broadly in literary journals such as The Malahat Review, Arc Poetry Magazine, Poetry Ireland Review, Prairie Fire, Grain Magazine, Southword Journal, and elsewhere.
