My name is Melaku.
I am a 100% independent artist.
Making music with a message 😇
My latest single “Bad Thoughts” is for people suffering, feeling sad, or not good enough. It’s about getting rid of those thoughts and not letting them stop you ❌
Since I was in middle school, I've been writing, recording, playing 🎸🥁🎹🎤🎵, mixing and masterering pretty much everything.
My self produced, self released songs have been featured in blogs and publications like With Guitars Magazine, Tattoo Magazine, The Indie Source, The Big Takeover, For Folk's Sake, BuzzMusic, AnR Factory, and Consequence Of Sound.
Everything I make is from the heart, and for the upliftment of humanity 💛✊
Thanks for being on this journey ✈️🙏
