WORDS OF THE WATER (2020)
The soulful, and sonically rich debut album from MELD has received praise from Forbes Mag, Live for Live Music, The Tennessean, Music Crowns, and played on NPR WMOT Roots Radio, Lightning 100, and more. The album features a meditative collaborative spoken word project and fundraiser for ocean cleanup featuring Amber Lily, Marya Stark, Shira Elias, Katie Buxton, Maureen Murphy, Alanna Royale, Jess Nolan, Erin Boyd of Phantom Vanity, and Heather Christie.
Produced by Josh Nelson and Melanie Dewey, mixed by Paul Cossette (Sturgill Simpson,) and mastered by Anthony Thogmartin of Papadosio - the album was blessed by many talented hands. Released in late 2020, amidst a presidential election, global pandemic, and shortly after the death of MELD's father, the album is a testament to the true resiliency of the human spirit.
H.U.R.T. is the debut EP from MELD. It was produced by Matt Harris of Zoogma, and received praise from Nylon Mag, BTRToday, Syracuse New Times, No Country for New Nashville, and more - ultimately landing MELD on Hype Machine in 2017.
The remix album was MELD's first true taste of Spotify growth - as the first single "Leaving You Out (Felice Remix)" garnered over 250,000 streams on Spotify, and counting! It also premiered in Dancing Astronaut.
"H.U.R.T." which stands for "Healing Under Rising Truth," is a nod to the notion that sometimes the truth hurts, but it is within these harsh truths and lessons that we grow, and heal the most.

BIRTH OF SOMETHING GOOD
Birth of Something good is the first ever Holiday single from MELD. The single contemplates the true meaning of Christmas. During the writing process Melanie asked herself "What is this day REALLY about?" She found herself answering, "celebrating gratitude, and the rise of hope and goodness." The song became one about new beginnings, and was aptly released at the end of 2020, to welcome the new year.
