What was the pivotal moment that made you decide to pursue a career in EDM? 

Before I took the name Melleefresh, I was in a trio called Melleny Melody & The Pop Machine. My two bandmates, Dave Howard and Pete Jarvis, really understood my love of Electronic Dance music and they knew immediately when I presented them with some loungy low-fi jazzy songs how to turn them into banging House music that people would wanna dance to. It was through working with them on new remixes that everything fell into focus. 


How do you maintain your creativity and stay inspired after so many years in the industry? 

Being in the studio is MY HAPPY PLACE, every time you enter a studio it’s a brand-new track, new music, new engineer or someone you’ve worked with a lot, and new collaborator /producer, the listening and writing process is magical and then to sing what you have written is epic! I get a natural high always, I Love it! 


Your work is known for its playful and experimental approach. Can you describe your creative process when producing a new track?  

Listening to the track and writing a lyric on the spot, having a few choices of ways to go, singing out loud, recording, listening back, making some changes, triple tracking, adding choruses, harmonizing…
Fooling around with different voices (I have a few) I just never know, for me, it’s a super exciting process.
