Today we’d like to introduce you to Melody (Superstar) Edward.
Melody, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I am a Singer/songwriter and vocal producer. I started singing at the age of two and have been songwriting and recording professionally for over 15 years. I was born in the city of dreams New York City Brooklyn and was raised in Boston Massachusetts Home of the Champs. I attended a performing Arts High school Boston Arts Academy. In 2013 I released my first ever studio gospel pop album called “God is in Control” independently. In order to accomplish more of my dreams and goals, I knew I had to take my career a step further. So I took a Leap of Faith and moved to the city of Angels Los Angeles! As soon as I landed here in LA, I hit the ground running! I met and work with a lot of other songwriters producers and creatives. I’m best known for my catchy Topline Melodies, creative concepts and vocal arrangements. I’ve written for Mya, Alex Marley, Famous Dex, Inas X, I have also submitted music for Beyonce, Fantasia, Kelly Clarkson, Teyana Taylor, Danileigh and other various artists in the music industry.
In addition to being a singer/songwriter, I am also a wife and a mother. My husband Eliezer Edward is my ride or die and is my partner in everything! He has been by my side and has believed and invested in me and my dreams from the very beginning. My beautiful one-year-old son Jeremiah is my biggest accomplishment to date! He inspires me and pushes me in ways I’ve never been pushed before. Even in today’s current climate the music never stops. I record and produce from home in my home studio located in my son’s nursery! It takes a lot of time management and dedication and in between cry breaks and tantrums, I get it done by any means necessary. I have a lot more to do! I’m so blessed to be living my dreams.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It definitely hasn’t been a smooth road. I believe everyone’s journey has its ups and downs. It’s inevitable. With every experience whether good or bad I’ve learned from it and have applied it to my life To better myself as an artist and businesswoman going forward. Everyone dreams of open doors and great opportunities but a lot of the time, it’s the opposite. It’s a lot more No’s than yes’s but it’s all part of the journey. Nothing worth having comes easy. You are going to fall and make mistakes but you have to get up, forgive yourself and keep pushing! Remember gods timing is the best timing!
Please tell us about The Melody by Melody.
The melody by Melody is a one woman operation. I write, sing, vocal produce and record songs for artists and producers from home. I’m best known for my catchy Topline Melodies, creative concepts and vocal arrangements. I’m proud of the fact that I no longer have to depend on others to create music. I can engineer and record my self but I’m mostly proud of what I represent as a woman. I’m not just an artist I’m a mom, wife and a Boss all at the same time! I’m going after my dreams by any means necessary. With God family and faith anything is possible! I believe that’s what sets me apart.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite childhood memory Is when my whole family would get together and sing! My sisters, niece, mom, dad, cousins, aunts and uncles all know how to sing! Everyone sang their note and we all harmonized together! My mom’s dream back then and still now is for us to have a family group like the Von Trapp family singers in the movie The sound of music! It’s a family tradition I will cherish forever!
