Melodime, Daniel Feels, Zak Smith

MELODIME is a rock band that grew up performing music in the hayloft of their horse farm in Northern Virginia. Their sound is heavily influenced by an appreciation for the past, while keeping it rootsy, catchy, and original. "One thing you never question about a MELODIME song is whether they put their all into it. Each one is not just musically addictive, but is fit to bursting with the emotion and energy the artists have infused into it; it's not commercial, it's better: it's art" (The Trades).

Over the past 5 years, MELODIME has worked extremely hard to continuously release new music to fans nationwide and build their brand from the ground up without the help of a record label. You can see them live at some of the premier music venues and colleges east of the Mississippi. Their live show is commonly praised as being full and refined -- even better than the album! Energetic pianos play an integral role in their cross-genre, southern rock sound, which is "both modern, and yet nostalgic, just begging to climb the pop charts where they well and truly belong" (JamSphere Magazine).

MELODIME's newest project includes a brand new full length album produced by Rick Beato (NEEDTOBREATHE, Shinedown, Charlie Mars, Decyfer Down, and many others) that will be released early in fall 2013. The band is taking a very unique approach with this next album. The band is donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this record to benefit children in their own community and around the world that have a desire to play an instrument but are not afforded the opportunity to chase that dream. The band was inspired to start this foundation based on the generosity of one individual that provided the very first instruments that eventually led to the musical beginnings of MELODIME.
