Event Details

Join us for a special live event with Melody Monroe — a trained multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer, and published poet. Described as “ethereal house Tori Amos,” Melody has harnessed the power of technology to create a One Woman Show that hypnotizes the observer, stopping them in their tracks. Floating soundscapes melt into rugged bass lines; intricate lyricism soars overhead. Dance music meets introspective poetry to create a full-spectrum fantasy on the human experience.

More about Melody…After many years in large ensembles, Melody took what she had learned from her mentors and fueled it with her fierce independence to create a One Woman Show. Her performance is organic and intimate; an electronic enchantress. As a soloist, Melody shines—from raw performances of textured piano and kinetic singing, to intricate sonic tapestries weaved from orchestral timbres, layered harmonies, and synthesized sounds. Her secondary medium is poetry: honest verbal meditations lifted with word play and whimsy. The result is a full-spectrum fantasy on the human experience.

Melody was singing throughout her earliest memories, and began taking piano lessons at the age of seven. In 6th grade, she picked up the trumpet, which proved to be an essential tool in understanding breath control, harmony, and group synergy. In high school, she began writing and performing her first songs for piano and vocals, and she also composed, orchestrated, and conducted pieces for wind ensemble and brass ensemble. Melody studied creative writing and International Affairs at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The marching arts consumed much of her early adulthood, with extensive performances on multiple instruments with world-renowned groups such as The Blue Knights, Bluecoats, and Music City Mystique. More recently, her involvement in World Class drumline took her around the US performing with the electronic duo ODESZA.

Though Melody has a passion for large ensembles, condensing her expansive knowledge of music into a soloistic venture allows for the journey to take her anywhere. The artist thrives through connection, and with performances at Electric Forest and Vertex Music Festival, to small-town pubs and house shows across the country, Melody adapts and jams in any environment. By exploring the landscape, trails, towns, cities, and stories that make up our blue marble, the quest for empowerment continues.
