VSCO Journal : MeLo-X
Living and creating out of New York City, MeLo-X is an artist who doesn’t limit himself to a specific craft. Above all, Melo-X sees himself as a creator whose liveliness is communicated through music, paint, photography, writing, producing, performing, traveling, and so on. Originally from Jamaica, and currently residing in an eclectic apartment located in the heart of Brooklyn, MeLo-X carries an aesthetic that reflects a myriad of moods, cultures, and artistic sentiments.
Influenced by everything from Nirvana to Eminem, MeLo-X’s music combines the colorful nuances of his Jamaican heritage with the gritty realities of New York, to bring the listener into a one-of-a-kind experience. Fusing soul, electronic, hip hop and old school reggae, MeLo-X has his hand in every aspect of his music. Creating a highly complex and gorgeous array of ambience that floats behind his raw and powerful voice, MeLo-X’s new album ‘GOD: Pièce de Résistance’, which releases today, is his most ambitious to date.
