Since 2014, Melis has performed in various venues ranging from Rockwood Music Hall, Pianos, Pete’s Candy Store, Cafe Vinilo, The Bitter End, to Shapeshifter Lab. She occasionally plays under the pseudonym AKER — a Brooklyn-based music collective headed by Alessio Romano and herself, which alternates its member depending on the project. She frequently records at Studio 42 BK, and is working towards her full album there (to be announced in 2020.) She has previously released an EP “Dirt“ via Young Pals Music (broadcast on MaxFm), a single “The Little Prince,“ and a collaborative EP “The Other Side“ with TLK. Her song “The Unknowing“ made it to the 2017 NPR Tiny Desk contest’s final highlights reel.
