I am a pro-Session Singer, Writer, and Voiceover artist
Why Voice Matters
When you hire a session singer or voiceover artist, you aren’t looking for someone to just recite words with a pleasant voice. You want someone who will engage the listener, drawing them into your story. The right artist can make your project come to life, encouraging the listener to emotionally connect with the story. I can do this for your commercial, song, or other narratives to not only give your words a voice, but to give them life.

I have both a voiceover reel and singing reel, but feel free to check out what others have said about my work. I feel that the best references are people who have worked with me before and can speak honestly about their experience. Below are just a few!
“Mella is a singer/songwriter whose pop music reflects a complicated life and a myriad of feelings. That’s one reason I identify so strongly with her songs: We often don’t know what life will throw at us or how we’ll react to it. Mella’s songs are beautifully crafted, from her fluid lyrics to the mix of keyboard, acoustic guitars and solid beats that back them up. Her vocals are lovely, reminiscent of Sara Bareilles at times and of Feist at others. Mella also has the enviable ability to write metaphorical lyrics that roll off the tongue. Her most joyful tune, “Tangerine,” is a love song that showcases this lyricism. Her other tunes show a more ambivalent side: “Outer Space” describes the excitement and uncertainty of taking a leap of faith and leaving one’s past behind, and “It’s Complicated” is, well, complicated. One of my favorite songs, “Brother,” may be autobiographical in its depiction of triumphing against the worst odds. Its catchy, rolling beat remind me of Carole King and more recent Ingrid Michaelson tunes. “Find Me” is another favorite; a beautiful tribute of a love song. If there’s one video to watch today, It’s Mella’s live recording of “It’s Complicated,” which I’ve linked to below. Only accompanied by an acoustic guitar, Mella’s perfect vocal is candid and rare.

OK, i’m excited!! I just bartered for the rights to use a song called “Tangerine” by awesome indie artist Mella, http://www.reverbnation.com/mellamusic, for possibly a session of Mixing Lessons/Audio Sessions. OK, so envision all of those cool quirky pop songs they use for Apple commercials. this is that. Only this has a super cool factor attached because its also all live instruments. all live quirky unique instruments, plus a quirky singer and a really fun song. Its going to be an excellent session of mixing lessons and as importantly, its going to be a great experience for you folks at home to be able to do your own mix of this song. I guarantee you that you haven’t come across some of these instruments in a mix session.

A voice with a mix of Natalie Merchant and Colbie Caillat with a touch of soul. Deep, powerful songwriting reminiscent of Joni Mitchell. These comparisons are just a few of Mella’s influences.
