The Melismatics: Steady Ride to Rock Stardom
“Forming at the turn of the century, The Melismatics quickly found their place within the Minneapolis indie rock scene. With their debut album, “Postmodern Rock”, they caught the attention of college radio stations and gained many favorable reviews from local critics and fans.
With five records and numerous tours now under their belt, a new full length in the making, and plenty of loyal fans to follow their every move, The Melismatics are on a steady path to rock stardom. We had the chance to catch up with Ryan (lead vocals, guitar), Mark (bass, vocals) and Ron (drums) on how their musical journey began, their best gigs ever, and why the social media market is so important.”
