It’s been an intense few years for singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Alexa Melo. In June of 2015, at 20 years old, the Massachusetts-born, L.A.-raised artist independently released her self-titled debut album. A series of West Coast concert performances got industry tastemakers talking, acclaim from the blogosphere began to build, and support from major market radio programmers across the country soon followed.

 

But just as things were ramping up, emergency surgery on her vocal
chords grinded the momentum to an untimely halt. After a full year of vocal rest – pure agony to a performer as prolific as Melo – she
slowly got herself back into the swing of things in 2016, recording a series of cover songs to post on YouTube, garnering over a million YouTube plays in less than a year.

 

Alexa moved to San Francisco in the summer of 2017 to begin a vigorous search for inspiration, to continue rebuilding her spirit and to create a new sound of her own. In a short few months she wrote and produced her upcoming second release, the four-song “MUTE” EP. It embodies and sonically manifests the mental and physical struggles she’d dealt with while recuperating from vocal surgery. In the process of producing “MUTE” she met a key collaborator, videographer Daniel Garcia. He helped to create a visual aesthetic for the EP, directing compelling and emotionally-charged music videos for each song.

Alexa plans to release the first single and music video in the summer of 2018. The entire EP will be available September 2018.
