Feeling a bit camera shy


Melody uses technology and her voice to weave intricate sonic tapestries in real time. Her lyrics are bold, honest poetry in motion. Her vocals glide between the sultry and the powerful, and live-stacked harmonies form a backdrop of raw humanity.
Melody's fierce independence has lead her to form a One Woman Show that wields a multitude of influences from classical to grunge, electro to soul. Her live performances have been featured at Electric Forest Music Festival in Rothbury, MI, and Vertex Music Festival in Buena Vista, CO.

Singing from her first encounters with her voice box, Melody began taking piano lessons at the age of 8. In 6th grade she picked up the trumpet, which proved to be an essential tool in understanding breath control, harmony, and ensemble synergy. In high school she began writing and performing her first songs for piano and vocals, and also composed, orchestrated, and conducted pieces for wind ensemble and brass ensemble. Melody studied at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  The marching arts consumed much of her early adulthood, with extensive performances on multiple instruments: the Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps (trumpet); Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble (cymbals), Bluecoats of Canton, OH (Euphonium); and Music City Mystique of Nashville, TN (dancer). Her many years of participating and teaching drumline led her to spend 2016 as a part of ODESZA's famed drumline.

Melody sits on the board of directors for Rise Performing Arts, a Denver-born 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to enrich lives through percussion, community, and performance. Melody's passion for adventure and the outdoors is fierce, and she finds herself camping, hiking, or on a rock wall as often as is possible. Her vision is to empower womxn to find their voice in the ever-changing world of music.
