Bio

Mel Bailey is an Australian based artist that focuses on expressing herself through a multitude of different genres and styles such as Neo-Soul, R’n’B and Jazz. After releasing her debut EP in early 2018 ‘No Doubt, Just Questions’ Mel Bailey ventured through the Americas for several months on a journey of self discovery and empowerment. Through this journey she experienced many influences ranging from different musical genres, cultures and natural landscapes, all of which she has embraced and channelled through her artistry and embodied in her new EP ‘March’ scheduled for release in 2020. Mel Bailey’s sonics are uniquely hers with lush jazz melodies over juxtaposing instrumentals heavily driven by her 6 piece band. Mel Bailey’s undeniable sonic presence and power is bound for greatness and will soon be realised.

Even with that dramatic production from Kwame and Xiro on this one it's Mel Bailey that damn dominates the track!
