Album Notes
"If you’ve been wondering where that delicious swingy jazz-pop sound has gone from music, Melon & The Mayhem have kidnapped it, raised it along with some classic rock sounds, and made it entirely their own. The 5 piece Nashville band is made up of the classy and sassy Mary Ellen Klein on vocals and piano with Ryan Swinehart (saxophone), Tim Provence (drums) ... [bass, and lead guitar] backing her up and providing a sound that is reminiscent to both early jazz and modern pop.
On certain tracks, you can hear Klein occasionally challenging vocals like Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes on rock ‘n roll tracks and like Zooey Deschanel of She & Him on the softer tracks. These influences take nothing away from the band though: they are a refreshing, original addition to music—they just have the talents of the greats." -Savannah Davanzo, BuzzArtist

Melon & The Mayhem are an indie pop band based in Nashville, TN. Blending 1940s cabaret singer style with big band jazz, Melon & The Mayhem create a modern electronic-influenced sound with vintage roots. Singer-songwriter Mary Ellen "Melon" Klein fronts the band, singing and playing piano. Originally from Atlanta, GA, her roots are clearly reflected through clever lyrics and a soulful singing style. "The Mayhem" refers to the strong and wild energy brought to the stage by saxophonist Ryan Swinehart, drummer Tim Provence, and bassist Eric Santagada. Their second EP, Bluerise, is set for release March 28, 2014, with an East cost tour to follow.
