MELD‘s music is an eclectic soulful journey. Drawing inspiration from her two favorite genres, Electronica and Classic Soul, she has created a unique fusion of musical elements. People have likened her performance to that of a “modern day” Janis Joplin meets Janelle Monae.
In January of 2017, MELD released her debut EP “H.U.R.T.” (Healing Under Rising Truth.) The 5-song work was produced by Matt Harris of Livetronica band, Zoogma, and can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Tidal, YouTube and more. Her single “Easy On The Game” received nods from Nylon Magazine, BTRToday, No Country for New Nashville, YabYum Arts, Syracuse New Times, and several other publications- ultimately landing the single on Hype Machine. The “H.U.R.T.” remix album is set to be released in March 2018, with collaborations and remixes by Felice, Y-Diz, Smurphio, SAER, Daniel Simmons, Spaceship Earth, Waterchild, and Batavia. In previous solo projects, MELD (Melanie Dewey,) has had the opportunity to share the stage with jam bands Zoogma, Papadosio, and Brothers Past.
Chuck Knott and “Jill with a G” front the funky and fun-loving folk duo known as The Knotty G’s. Formed in Asheville, NC, they travel the country serving up soul in a hearty original recipe of pan-seared-boot-stomping-upbeat tunes, slow-cooked-captivating ballads, and even a few beaten-battered-deep-fried covers. Nothing short of a stir fry of fun, these characters can certainly satiate even the biggest of musical appetites.
