EP is released and ready for purchase and download!

Friends and fans-
Mela has finally released their first ever EP entitled Red Dust! You can get your download here:

Or if you come to a show or see me in person, you can buy a physical CD, each one labeled by hand, and stamped by a stone hand-carved stamp from China, with my name in Chinese.
The release party was so much fun, and I think everyone's favorite part was singing along with the new song my students wrote about a gust of wind that steals your money.

Upcoming shows:

Saturday, May 5th
2-4pm @ the Waterfront Museum
Hudson River Park, Pier 25 in Tribeca at the foot of N. Moore St

Thursday June 21st
Make Music New York
Sidewalk of Grand Canyon Restaurant
Montague St. Brooklyn Heights
time TBA

Looking forward to some awesome Mela music making this summer!

Mela EP release party March 26th!

If you ordered an EP from the Red Dust Kickstarter, now is your chance to come on out, hear some music, eat some FREE FOOD, and pick up your album or Polaroid! We worked hard making some musical magic with the amazing talents of:
Robert Cowie (in addition to the other members of his Jazz Flophouse- Otto and Ella, and Mama Medina :)
Not to mention the amazing:
Cody "The Anvil" Rahn,
Charlie "The Blanket" Rauh,
Concetta Abbate (we're still working on her nickname- any ideas?)
Nidia "Mama" Medina
Cydney McQuillan-Grace.

ALSO obviously if you haven't pre-ordered an album, this is your big chance to come by and buy one! The album includes such mystical seaside hits as:
By The Sea
Chiarascura (that's the weird one with the singing bowl)
Goodnight Baby
These Are the Days (mixed and mastered by Aaron Cohen)
Red Dust

So come on out, eat some of the FREE BUFFET (Did I mention the free food yet?), hear some great music, and get your album or artwork from Scott Walsh!

45-58 Vernon Blvd, Long Island City, NY 11101
(That's Queens everyone. It feels farther away than it really is- take the 7 or G train it's easy I swear.)

WHEN: March 26th, 9-10pm.
(Also, another talented singer songwriter Kelly Ash will be performing at 8 if anyone wants to hang out with me and listen to her beforehand :)

WHAT? THERE'S MORE?: Yes! Not only will you hear lots of great music and pick up the album and eat, but you will hear some NEW songs, including music for Green Theatre Collective's summer production of The Tempest, a song set to Lyrics by Kickstarter Backer (and talented singer and novelist) Lee Harrington, and other treats!

Please let me know if you will be coming to pick up your EP or artwork so I can put your name on a list!
