I finally got the opportunity to chat to Meljoann about their album, ‘H.R.’. The album was released about six weeks ago and I love it. Originally from Ireland, Meljoann now lives in Brighton and to be honest, I’m a big fan.
Meljoann has produced an album that deserves wider recognition. The songwriting is top class and the musicianship production values on ‘H.R.’ are honey for the ears.
I first heard of Meljoann’s music in the run-up to the release of their album ‘Squick’. Previous lifetime stuff here, I was still living in Dublin and made promo CDs for bands. This was a fantastic opportunity to reconnect and find out what life is like for an Irish artist living in Brighton, which, I might add, is one of my favourite places.
During our chat, Meljoann spoke about the experimental music scene in Brighton and mentioned Geoff from Spirit of Gravity. Make sure to sign up to their newsletter on their website for events in Brighton.
Meljoann also spoke about her collaboratorRegan O’Brien. Do check out Regan’s work and the video below.
You can listen to and purchase Meljoann’s album “H.R.’ on Bandcamp.

Check out Meljoann’s session for Dan Hegarty on 2FM
As I was going through everything for the show, I found this Live session that Meljoann did for Dan Hegarty’s show on 2FM. This is just brilliant, Meljoann is the pop star for our times. Immense stuff.
