Interview with Mr. Melody

My single “Still in Love” was nominated for a Grammy. I also performed at Sting 30 in Jamaica alongside Wyclef Jean, Sizzla, 2Chainz and many other artist.

JTA: What distinguishes you from the average artist and why?
MELODY: I would have to say my sound because it is a combination of Reggae, R & B, Soul and Hip Hop.

JTA: What is your current single and what is it about?
MELODY- “You don’t know” is a song that talks about everyone with money that lives a lavish lifestyle. It’s telling them to stop and look at what is going on around you. I’m talking from the perspective of a young female teenage prostitute and a young teenage drug dealer. For these two this is all they know. But for someone living a lavish lifestyle they don’t know. I’m just bringing these things to light.

JTA: What has been your biggest break or greatest opportunity so far?
MELODY: I have several, in 2013 when my single “Fly to the Moon” was #26 on The Billboard Charts and my single “Still in Love” was nominated for a Grammy. I also performed at Sting 30 in Jamaica alongside Wyclef Jean, Sizzla, 2Chainz and many other artist.

JTA: Think back to your childhood, what was your first experience with music?
MELODY-Being with my grandmother and great-grandmother on Sunday morning singing Stevie Wonder.

JTA: What made you realize you wanted to pursue a music career?
MELODY- I always wanted to own a club. At the age of 19 years old I was the owner of Club Melodies in Jacksonville, Fl. I was at the club chilling with some friends and they dared me to get on stage and sing. So I did, and it seemed like the building just started to fill up, more people started coming in. A week later I received a call to open up for Junior Reed.
