    Mel doesn't just make art. She is mindful of the people she works with, and makes use of their strengths. Her versatility as a vocalist and musician really sets her apart from a ton of producers, especially since vocals are sucha main component of contemporary music. She's also got a wonderful heart and sense of humor that make her really easy to work with and stay within the vibe of the song

She's fun to work with and her stuff sounds incredible! She's so passionate about what she does, she always gives 100% of herself to what she records. I will gladly pick her for all of my future recording, editing, production, etc needs.
