Born in Austin, Texas, Mélat is the eclectic soul of modern RnB. Mélat tells a story that is both challenging and inspiring crafted from her very own life experiences. It is a pure and honest reflection of her soul. From love, lust, success, to failure Mélat sings of what it means to be a human being simply longing to “be”.
Mélat has been turning heads nationally throughout the music world for her unique and eclectic sound. Recognized by Billboard, The Fader, The Guardian and Tribeza, Mélat is heavily inspired by her hometown. The Red Bull Sound Select artist simply approaches things differently when it comes to musical soundscapes. According to TheFader.com, "Austin-based Mélat boasts the kind of smoky, mid-range voice that once helped a young Alicia Keys pierce through the barrage of bubble-gum songbirds of the early 2000s." Standing out against the background of music's current landscape, the future is bright for this star. Mélat brings an elegant soul and deeply rooted passion to every song she records and every stage she performs on allowing listeners to reinvision what Texas has to offer musically.
