Artist Interview: MELo V
Tell us about yourself and your music
Hey my name is Vincent Thomas a.k.a MELo V. I am a Singer, Songwriter & Engineer from Elizabeth New Jersey. One thing about me is that I’m eager to journey wherever my imagination leads me. What separates me from similar artists is my past experiences and my struggle. Being the eldest of 4 & the only boy, i took the place of that male figure that was absent in my sisters’ lives. Due to this, I use empathy to create lyrics that are relatable to everyone.
Any plans to release a video?
Videos are coming the top of 1ST quarter
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
There are lots of affective ways to brand yourself. I chose to stay up close and personal with the supporters I connect with, sending merchandise and exclusives to all my music. This helps build a closer relationship with my supporters.
Who have you been listening to lately?
To be honest, I try to stay in my own lane. I listen to the radio from time to time but I’m usually so consumed with perfecting my own craft and helping to develop others artists, with what I’ve learned,
Tell us about your passions
My Family, if I didn’t have the love and support of my family who knows where I’d be. I used to hustle back in my town. Luckily, God spared my life and stirred my path. Most importantly, that changed when my daughter was born.
What else is happening next in your world?
Continuous hustle. I feel like I’m so close to achieving my goals in music so I can’t let up. This is what I was born to do.
Thanks for an awesome interview, Vincent!
