SORT BY Relevancy
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. "It's hard to describe what you sound like when your influences are so varied!" she says, "I try to create a new sound and use true life stories when I write my songs." Starting from childhood, Mella was quick to move into the songwriting scene in her hometown, Detroit. "As soon as I could drive, I went to every studio I could find," she said, "I just wanted a chance. Eventually they gave me a shot and I started writing hooks for rap songs." The rest, as they say, is history. She began playing at local Detroit venues and touring the local area, opening for bigger artists and headlining packed shows. For Mella, music is all about the connection with the listener. "When I was younger, music helped me get through some really tough times," she said, "it saved me. And if I have the chance to help someone through my music, I can think of no greater way to give back. That would mean everything to me."

September 30 show didn't go exactly as planned. There were some announcements of opportunities posted at L&BH Network Arts News http://www.listenandbeheard.net/artsnews, including calls for submissions of writing and photography. The international writers residency didn't get mentioned. The deadline is a ways off though, so I'll mention it next week. The profile of Howard Wiley and his music from the "Angola Project" also did not get aired, but his music is the everlasting kind, so it'll still be good news next week. I did play a segment of "Mission of Love" a serial radio drama, and I also played some poetry, "Unnamed Flower" and "New York City Blues." I spoke with the Metaphysical Muse, Tony Mims. He had a poem about numerology and gave out some good information about the coming week. I played a story about an ancient African queen called "Mella" and at the very end Mariquita called in with a poem for her man, a hot poem delivered in Spanglish to use a word I've been hearing lateley.
I also will be featuring a poem and very short story of the week. I welcome submissions of same for future shows.
It would be great to get some interesting calls tonight!
Wishing you Peace and Poetry
