From the growing pains of dealing with parents – to having issues with boys – to the scary reality of becoming a young adult, Melina Mellé writes songs about their lives.
“So I must confess – I’ve shed a tear or two – You won’t address – this kind of attitude. It could be raining and I’d still be burning for you” – (Burning for You – Melina Mellé)

“I have produced songs for stars like Rihanna, Mariah Carey and Usher. Melina Mellé has the rare combination of having that ‘it factor’ (Star Quality) and being a young person who works hard at being a thoughtful songwriter and multi-instrumentalist”.
