Mellani Day

Mellani grew up in California and has been singing all her life. From at home jams to school choirs and church worship teams to eventually performing with various bands in Colorado, she has been involved in and surrounded by song. In additions to singing and songwriting she plays keyboard and ukulele. Growing up near Los Angeles, she developed her love for the ocean, sun and sand, which is reflected in many of her songs. Mellani moved to Germany as a young adult for adventure and to see the world, then studied business and entrepreneurship. While in Germany she sought out musicians to back her up in a variety of settings, including playing for fun at student and community events with “The Administration Blues Band” at the international college where she worked at in Heidelberg for a few years. Living in Europe exposed Mellani to a variety of world-musical styles which she incorporates into her songs. She relocated to the United States, settling in Colorado and continued to write and perform at various songwriter sessions and with local bands, including “Live Wire” a working blues band in Denver that included some of her original songs in their sets, then her own band Dazed and various other forums. Mellani now has a doctorate in business administration and works at a university in Colorado, but continues to sing and write songs for a variety of settings and incorporating a variety of the musical influences she loves, classic vocal jazz, rock, blues, and Latin, reggae/island beats, worship, and even pop as the mood strikes. Mellani has released one EP entitled Shy to Sure and one full CD entitled Mostly True. She is re-releasing her original “So Much of Nothing Going On” just in time for Summer fun.
