Mel Kay is an Australian artist based in the USA.
Her passion & calling in life is music. She has a decade of experience as a professional singer, writer & vocal coach. She draws inspiration from the likes of Lorde, Dermot Kennedy, and Regina Spektor.
Mel Kay studied vocal performance since age 17 at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts graduating in 2015 and being accepted into Honors. She was unfortunately diagnosed with Lyme disease that year and so took the year off and focused on healing and writing. Consequently her first single Upside Down Town was signed to the A&R Department in Sydney and played internationally while also scoring local commercial airplay. She has since played her original music for the heads of Silicon Valley, on Channel 7, and Foxtel as well as being broadcast in York , Rio, South Carolina and around the globe. She wrote her show "Personality Disorder Catalyst" focused on trauma, mental health, and escaping the cycle of abuse the next year which sold out to a captive audience at The Ellington Jazz Club. Her single Let It Burn also received the attention of producer Backfall in the U.K. who asked her to collaborate. She since was nominated for two of her singles top 6/1400 at the WAM awards 2019 for PHOENIX & top 12/6000 with BAKCFALL for YOU. She has performed at venues all across Western Australia and Darwin & has recently moved to the USA. She is passionate about her music reaching those who have been hurt and in being a voice for the voiceless. Her band Liberté was founded in 2015 and is focused on music aimed to motivate people to know their own inner power. With a mix of funk, pop, electronic and indie music the band likes to describe their sound as a mix of Lorde, The Browhorn Orchestra, Meg Mac, and Jarryd James.
