MEL'S JUST RELEASED GOSPEL ALBUM: “THE MASTER'S HAND ”… Mel is extremely excited for people to hear his new CD on which he has worked so hard and has put so much time and effort into. Every aspect of this carefully chosen and crafted collection of inspirational songs is superb. The music will delight your ears and the words will lift your spirit.
In a recent interview with him he stated: "Whenever I hear the phrase "gospel music" I tend to think of the songs I heard in my youth - such great songs as "Amazing Grace", "The Old Rugged Cross", "We shall Gather At The River", etc. When I started to get serious about my desire to one day do a gospel album, I found myself drawn to songs that give a great spiritual message, but in a slightly different way. Not only can we have upbeat melodies, but also put a lighter spin on the choice of songs. A perfect example of this is on a brand new song, never before recorded, written by Tom Rich titled "I Think About It Anyway" - a great song you'll find alluring and wanting to sing along with. For those who like a more reverent tone, there are such beautiful songs as "One pair Of Hands", "Someone Above", "In The Garden" and "The Master's hand". And for those who enjoy my kind of good old "Southern Gospel", there are those songs that will make you want to clap your hands and stomp your feet...such as "So High", my version of "I'm Working On The Building", and more!
Mel uses his unique means to drive home the gospel message in each and every one of these songs. So sit back, listen to these wonderful spiritual tunes that will uplift and put a smile on your face!

POLISH CONNECTION… Mel is fast becoming a singer of great interest in Poland, as well as in the U.S. It all started back in January, 2007 with a gentleman by the name of Przemek Draheim. He is the host of two blues radio shows there, along with one gospel show. He had listened to Mel's music, liked it a lot, and asked for permission to present Mel's music on his shows.
It went over very well with his listeners, the word spread, and Przemek asked Mel to give an interview for publication in a Polish Cultural Forum there. They were very interested to hear about him, and his music… very positive feedback followed.

A Note From Don Reed:
Affinity Music / Don Reed Productions, Inc.
"I've been in this business for over 40 years and occasionally someone crosses my path with a talent that surpasses the norm. Mel fits that category excessively so. The passion, the feeling, and the conviction that he puts into his interpretation of a song is a true expression of a real talent. He injects what I call 'attitude' into every song he sings. So, get ready...sit back and let Mel entertain you."
