Rue Melo - Beautiful Melo-dy
Sunday, July 27, 2008

Spend the better part of a year touring and you learn a lot about yourself. Rue Melo jokes, “I’ve learned that I can get ready a lot faster than I thought.” After separate tours with Lyrics Born, G-Love and Los Lonely Boys, and an extended tour of music festivals, that’s not all she’s learned. Rue has found that the music of her eponymous debut album, a sound she dubs “Urban Pop,” connects with a wide variety of people. “Fans coming to see an underground hip-hop artist end up liking our music and fans coming to see G-Love or Los Lonely Boys end up liking our music too.”

According to Rue, the “Urban Pop” sound that’s attracting them all is a blend of pop, R&B, Latin, reggae and hip-hop. Before linking up with her bandmates, Bryan Bush, Claudio Tomasello, and Idris Tate, the half-French half-Uruguayan trilingual beauty spent most of her life bouncing from place to place and the melting pot that is her sound represents the amalgamation of cultures and life experiences that define her as a person.

As a multifaceted individual who creates such a unique sound, it’s no surprise that, when it comes to her album, she says, “Every song is really different from the others. The voice is the same tone, but I flip it and really go with the flow of the mood of the song.” Rue notes, “Some of the content is stuff that really hasn’t been touched on. There’s really a different flavor going on. That’s what I’m bringing to the table, being able to listen to one artist that brings you all different kinds of styles.”
