A Nashville-based musical act just under one year old, MELD and her 6-piece band have already played events such as Nashville's Music City Big Break on Cannery Row (October of 2016,) The Happening at Bearded Iris Brewery in West Nashville (September 2016,) and Summer Jam Finale/Whatchakalooza at Harp & Fiddle Nashville in late summer 2016. They've also played well-known Nashville venues such as The Basement, The Country, The High Watt, Mercy Lounge, Mad Donna's, and more.
In previous solo projects, MELD (Melanie Dewey,) has had the opportunity to share the stage with songwriters Maggie Rose, Teddy Geiger, and jam bands Zoogma, and Brothers Past. Other accolades and accomplishments that came from MELD's previous years of songwriting include: A top 12 finalist spot in the 2013 annual Bruce Hornsby Songwriter's showcase for her original song "Why We Cry," and a 7th place slot out of thousands in the 2013-2014 Grammy U amplifier competition.
Regardless of her eclectic background in music, MELD has always been dedicated to the art of performance. She has toured all around the USA, including playing in cities such as Nashville, TN, Philadelphia, PA, Syracuse, Ithaca, and New York, NY, Jacksonville, Miami, and Orlando, FL, Flagstaff, AZ, Portland, ME, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, CA. Visited in a dream once by Susan Tedeschi, Melanie (of MELD,) had a conversation with her, in which Susan quoted another of Melanie's influences stating "Remember what Janis Said! 'In the moment, it's not just your skill or how you play that makes or breaks a show. It's the audience that guides the music in the direction it's supposed to go.' " This dream experience is the perfect way to describe MELD's outlook on performance. Each show is a unique experience, and most importantly, a collective and shared one.
MELD is currently working on a two-part EP release, that will collaboratively explore all facets of the r&b/soul/jam world. The first EP (set to be released in January of 2017, with a single this November,) will explore more minimalistic electronic instrumentation. The second EP (to be released in Late 2017,) will work with more complex rhythms, chord changes, and lyrical concepts. Melanie will be working with instrumentalists, visual artists, and influences from every chapter of her life. In other words, people from all across the US will be lending their artistic voice to this album. It is within this truly collaborative effort, that MELD works to build a collective of creatives from around the world.
Overall, MELD aims to open minds and hearts from all walks of life with this eclectic approach. Her mission as an artist, is to honor and acknowledge the validity of all musical processes, genres, and storytelling methods - while fearlessly melding them together. Honoring the oneness of all things, MELD stands for fusion, acceptance, and above all, collaboration.
Jessica has shared the stage with Bernie Worrell (Funkadelic, Talking Heads,) Leon Hendrix (Jimi Hendrix's brother,) The Stepkids, Cecil P-Nut Daniels, members of the Motet, Ivan Neville, Eric Krasno, John Anderson (Yes, Asia,) Andy Irvine (Warwick,) Kinetix, Abstract Rude, Opio (Heiroglyphics, Souls of Mischief,) DJ True Justice, DJ RIPM, and is currently part of 10+ musical projects.
