Mélat: “Coffee So Black” (Live in Studio 1A)

By: Jack Anderson

If you don’t know the name Mélat, you’re seriously missing out. Between her voice, lyrics, world view and work ethic, this native Austinite and Studio 1A veteran is an insanely talented beacon of energy and with the release of her latest album Move Me II: The Present, it was kind of  a no-brainer to name Mélat our February Artist of the Month.
