Melismatic is a pop music and pop culture blog based in New York City, established on November 16, 2008.

I, Mel, simply put adore picking apart the minds of musicians, and have had the honor of interviewing such incredible people as Universal Motown's Jada, former members of Dream in the freshly re-incarnated Lady Phoenix, international star Agnes Carlsson, indie favorites Red Blooded Women and Mandy Ventrice, amongst so many others. I also partook as the resident season nine 'American Idol' blog columnist for Hit Predictor.

My writing has been mentioned on the BBC Chart Blog based in London, as well as on a few other blogs crafted by some of my most respected comrades, including Pop Reviews Now, FizzyPop!, Adventures of the Audio Diva and The Chemistry Is Dead. My articles have also been shared with fans by the artists themselves, including Jada, Bellevoxx, Manika, Belle Amie, Sophia Fresh, Nikki & Rich, Pasquelina, Ro Danishei, Simon Curtis, and Purple Reign.

YES, I do accept physical press kits and physical asset submissions. Please send your information to stating you would like to send physical product.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the sheer number of submissions, if I do not respond to you right away, it does not mean I am not interested. I do read and personally review every single submission, and I appreciate your interest. When I am able to, I will be in touch.

SONG/ALBUM SUBMISSIONS FOR REVIEW: Are you a musician? I do not discriminate if you are represented by the biggest label in the world or by solely yourself.
