Tender Forever charms us with her smile, her songs and her badass dance moves
Tender Forever – a.k.a. French-born Melanie Valera – brings her electronic bedroom pop to Chicago today for a pair of shows.
Tender Forever began in 2003, and though the tone of the music has changed incrementally over the years, her natural charisma and intimately personal lyrics have remained constant and integral to her work. Her vocals are at the same time lilting and soaring, her performance impassioned and playful.
