'Melina Malone is one of Irish music’s best kept secrets' - GoldenPlec, Ti Ein Afto Premiere, June 2020
Tipped as 'one of the best voices in Ireland' by GoldenPlec in 2021, Dublin born R&B artist Melina Malone is a force to be reckoned with in the Irish music scene. Her powerful vocal performances often leave audiences captivated, and Melina can be seen regularly drawing large crowds whenever she performs, regularly collaborating with some of Ireland’s finest performers from Mango X Mathman and Rebel Phoenix to Zaska, Booka Brass & Glasshouse Music.
Melina took a step away from the limelight in 2021 to complete her debut album, working diligently over the past 18 months with acclaimed Irish producers Alex O’Keefe (LYRA, Jafaris, Fia Moon) and Adam Shanahan (Shiv, Bobbi Arlo, Nealo) to bring her vision to life. Her long awaited LP is a powerful debut with flavors of Bossa Nova, 90’s R&B, and groove driven Neo Soul, a unique and fresh offering to the budding Irish music scene, and to the genre. Melina’s aim is to redefine the standard of Irish R&B with this record. 'Aphrodite' is set for release in September 2023.
