New Acoustic Cover – “I Thought I Knew it All” by Megadeth

An acoustic cover of Megadeth's "I Thought I Knew It All"

I'm excited to share this new song and video with you! If you'll recall, last year I did an acoustic cover of "All At Once" by Whitney Houston (you can check it out here if you want!) I grew up listening to Whitney Houston. I did not, however, grow up listening to Megadeth. My partner/co-writer, Aman, is a huge fan. He was kind enough to do the Whitney cover with me, so I did the Megadeth cover for him. One thing I learned while making this cover is how interesting Dave Mustaine's melodies are. I'd never think to create a melodic structure the way he does, a[...]

New Holiday Song with Her Excellency, The Governor

Happy Holidays! If you've been reading my blog for a while, you might have seen some of the projects I've done with Dan before. He contacted me last week and asked if I could do a rush order for a Christmas song. Most Christmas songs (by major artists, anyway) are written and recorded in June or July. This is so the label has time to work on everything for the release for the holiday season. When you're indie, you have more leeway to do a last-minute holiday song. Luckily I was able to fit some time into my schedule and we recorded Headlights! Here it is:[...]

New Single: June

New single, June, by The Gatsbys and Mella

June is almost over, but I have a new single about this month that was just released! So, I figured I should put it up before it's July and then this won't make any sense. You can still listen to the song anytime, but you wouldn't release a Christmas/holiday song in January, you know? I actually started writing June in October of last year. Most of your favorite holiday songs are recorded in the summer, so it makes sense to start a summer song in the fall! The Gatsbys hired me to topline (read more about that process here!) and sing it. They brought me the[...]

New Music Video for My Song, Café

An acoustic jazz video of coffee shop love

It's been a minute since I've made a music video, and I've had that creative itch for some time now! We at Brain Stamp are working on a new jazz album (or EP, depending on how many tracks we end up writing). I loved working on our track Café from our last album and wanted to make a video for it to tie it into the new songs. There were several setbacks here: 1). I don't have money to blow on an expensive video, and 2). I don't have a lot of time to put into making one. If you've seen my video for Tangerine, you know I'm a big fan of DIY. I wanted to do some[...]

New Single: Cloudy Glass produced by R4NYTE Entertainment

New single by R4NYTE featuring Mella

I've worked with the incredible R4NYTE before and was happy to work with him again. Cloudy Glass was a fun project! I didn't know they'd be adding a male singer to it until it was released, but I like having several singers on a track. I think it provides the listener with a nice variety and mixes things up a little. Here is the video for Cloudy Glass: You may notice I sound a little different in this track (not my usual voice). That was a stylistic decision I made because I felt my natural voice was a little too "light" for the song. I decided to place my v[...]
