Roll up! Introducing the synesthetic, rebel ex-beauty queen, pastel hipster, indie pop singer Mel Jade.
Singing has been Mel Jade's number one love from a very early age.
“I actually can't remember a time when I wasn't singing,” she says, “When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, at first I answered Belle from 'Beauty and the Beast', but when I realised that becoming a fictional cartoon character wasn't really a viable career option, I set my sights on singing instead.”
Mel Jade wrote her first song in the bathtub at the age of three called 'I never thought a seahorse could drown'.
“It was a very tragic song,” she laughs, but Mel Jade's love of singing and song writing didn't stop there.
At the age of 14, Mel Jade recorded her first demos and began performing at local cafes. By the age of 16, Mel Jade was a top 10 finalist with an original song in a national song writing competition. After she graduated high school Mel Jade was also song writing for other artists, film and television.
Whilst remaining completely independent and D.I.Y, Mel Jade has hit a million views on YouTube with a home made music video, toured the UK, hit the charts with a remix in Holland and won a MusicOz Independent Music Award.
Mel Jade's album 'DREAMSICK' was released in 2015 after she began debuting singles from the project with some of her favourite magazines such as Galore Magazine, BlackBook Magazine and Ladygunn Magazine in the USA.
Mel Jade describes her musical style as underground pop or "just a mash of everything I like".
This cocktail of influences which she has fused and injected with her own poetic lyrics that speak of fantastical suburbia, love and dreams means that the singer has emerged with her own brand of pop that is a little left of center.
“I bought some pretty dangerous glitter cannons off eBay, so I'm prepared for anything now.”
