Known on stage as her alter ego Melotika, Mel Yelle is redefining what it is to be an electro-pop artist. Also referred to as non-commercial Retro Pop, her sound is heavily influenced by artists such as Tool’s Maynard James Keenan, Madonna, Evanescence, Metric, Portishead, Silversun Pickups, and music of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Blending eclectic and stimulating sounds with carefully crafted, infectious, dance-able tunes, she stands for self-confidence and embraces individuality. Her lyrics are always laced with a deeper meaning, and her music offers a form of escapism for anyone who feels confused or alone.
In the past four years Melotika performed several live shows in Toronto, and toured Canada’s East Coast, Montreal, Ottawa, and British Columbia. She performed in popular Toronto venues including The Mod Club, The Hideout, The Piston and Hard Luck Bar and performed on radio stations such as 105.9 FM the Region in Ontario and 101.5 FM The Wolf in Peterborough.
Currently, she is focused on promoting her upcoming EP Dancing Without You, which has been released in several singles throughout 2021: 'Beautiful Disguise,’ ‘Crazy,’ ‘Dancing Without You’ and ‘Tangled Hearts.’ The full concept EP is expected for an official release on September 17th. 2021.
