Baker Rheanna Melnick, AKA musician Feed the Birds (CBC)
There is something sweet about Rheanna Melnick.
Whether she is feeding your soul as the folksy, whimsical, Feed the Birds -- or actually feeding you at her hipster haunt, "Jonnies Sticky Buns", your day will certainly be appetizing.
Rheanna is a professional musician who pays the bills by slinging some of the best organic baked goods Winnipeg has to offer.
It is a juggling act that frequently involves strumming and signing until midnight, followed by kneading and baking at 4 a.m. (We hope that the "day" portion of Rheanna's job somehow involves getting some sleep.)
While baker's and musician's hours appear to conflict, Rheanna somehow gets it done, getting rave reviews for both her performances on stage and in the kitchen.
As a performing artist Rheanna first cut her chops in a family band then later moved into a solo career. She now shares the stage (or should that be nest?) with Neil Goebel on bass and Steve Pennicook on drums, making for Feed the Birds.
And these aren't the only birds being fed, as Rheanna continues to measure out flour and beats for both customers and listeners alike.
