Melon & The Mayhem are an indie pop band based in Nashville, TN. Blending 1940s cabaret singer style with big band jazz, Melon & The Mayhem create a modern electronic-influenced sound with vintage roots. Singer-songwriter Mary Ellen "Melon" Klein fronts the band, singing and playing piano. Originally from Atlanta, GA, her roots are clearly reflected through clever lyrics and a soulful singing style. "The Mayhem" refers to the strong and wild energy brought to the stage by saxophonist Ryan Swinehart, drummer Tim Provence, lead guitarist, and bassist. Their second EP, Bluerise, released March 28, 2014.
