Melody was amazing to work with and provided a very high quality product in a short period of time. Would love to work together again in the future.
Perfect song transformation and amazing vocals!
Melody is a great, professional and quality singer. I'm looking forward to more songs:)
Melody is hands down one of the BADDEST, creative, inspirational, most hardworking singer/ songwriters I know! I’ve had the pleasure to work with her on a numerous of occasions and each time she brings nothing but professionalism and that energy. There’s some people that develop it because they’ve been in the studio many times BUT there are some that are BORN with that IT factor and she is one of them. I’ve worked with a few names such as BIA, Arianna Grande, Joyner Lucas, JadaKiss to to name a few. Melody sits right there in that category. She’s always had a unique style to approaching songs
Thank God for Melody, a one stop nostalgic harmonious joy to work with who delivers impeccable vocals that compliment any project just like your favorite all purpose or garlic and herb seasoning. Prompt and professional superstar standard, highly recommended.
Melody is one the most creative and innovative songwriters I have ever worked with. She also has one the most unique voices on the planet. Working with Melody, will guarantee you a hit record, whether she is writing or singing. ATEAM
Melody is an exceptional songwriter with great wit. Delivers high quality and most importantly catchy current lyrics and melodies.
