“16 Candles” by Melanie

From Melanie:

The search for identity is a huge part of my project.

Have you ever felt so alone in a crowd of people that even if you screamed at that top of your lungs no one would hear you? A constant worry that you’re going to disappoint everyone and that you’re not going to amount to what you dreamed of being. Laying yourself out there constantly for people to pick you apart. I believe in a new world. A world where everyone can be free of judgments, free from waking up and feeling the pressure that someone can’t accept them and their true art and selves for what it is. I truly believe we were all brought to this world to create, to be great and to show our true selves.

Who is Melanie?
Melanie? Is in everyone. Boy, girl, woman, grandmother, friend, poet, singer, journalist, transgender, chef, architect, lawyer.

Melanie? Speaks for the collective, the whole.
The single I’m releasing today ‘16 Candles’ is about every person realizing that the answer lies in themselves. It’s the theme of the single, the EP, and the theme of my life.

Please listen, share, pass on. And build eachother up. We’re all we have.

Thanks for listening,

MELANIE?
