Mel Fine is a neon-haired, non-binary, storytelling 21-year-old singer-songwriter out of Boston, MA. A multi-instrumentalist, Mel fuses soulful vibes with folky-acoustic pop to create music that sucks you in; their lush vocals hold your attention.
Mel has captivated audiences around New England with their loop-station performances, meaningful lyrics, and spunky personality. They have performed at many notable places including Berkshire Pride, The Red Room, The Middle East Club, and The Topsfield Fair. They also shared the stage with Ru Paul's Drag Race alum Nina West, Dr. Fauci, Big Freeda, and Roxanne Gay at Fenway Health's 50th Anniversary Gala.
Nominated for New Act of the Year at the 2019 New England Music Awards, Mel's up-and-coming presence continues to grow. Recently, Mel was awarded the 2021 Performance Division Voice Award by the Berklee College of Music Voice Department. Mel was also granted second place in Berklee's Songs For Social Change contest with their newest single, "In Between," a raw and heartfelt tale of their experience growing up non-binary.
By the age of 18, Mel released two albums which each feature 9 original songs, many of which Mel also produced. At 14, Mel dropped their debut album, Here To Stay, which landed 43rd on the iTunes New Pop Releases chart within the first week of its publication. Into The Storm, their second album dropped in 2018 along with music videos for their songs "Conscience" and "Rainbow Eyes." All of Mel's older music can still be found under "Melissa Fine" on all platforms, but all of us on team Mel felt it was time for something new.
