Meliya Releases First Single From Debut Album
February 19, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsFebruary 19, 2016 - BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND – Australian singer-songwriter, Meliya, officially released her first single, Slipping Slowly, to all major digital music distributors today.
Slipping Slowly is the first track to be released from Meliya's upcoming album, Catatonia, which is scheduled for independent release in late 2016. Meliya said the majority of Slipping Slowly was recorded throughout 2013 inside her walk-in wardrobe whilst living in Hollywood, Los Angeles.
"It's funny because at the time I was just trying to record some demos of my new songs so I had stuff to work on when I returned to Australia. In an attempt to block out the noise coming in from Hollywood Blvd, I decided to record in my closet with a laptop, microphone and acoustic guitar.
"Afterwards, when I started mucking around with the recordings, I realised I had captured a really unusual sound and decided to use them as the basis for the album.
"I eventually returned to Brisbane and was extremely lucky to meet Michael Whitney, a very talented sound engineer, and intuitive guitarist, Luke Zahnleiter. Musically, we clicked, so we recorded vocals, bass and some additional guitars before mixing at Alchemix Studios in Brisbane's West End."
Slipping Slowly is available on most digital platforms including Spotify, SoundCloud, Pandora and iTunes

Although Brisbane-based artist, Meliya, has just surfaced on the music industry's radar as a solo act, she has performed in various alternative bands for the past 10 years and supported well-known Australian acts such as The Radiators, Killing Heidi, Grinspoon and The Butterfly Effect.
Meliya's strong, striking cut-through rock voice and classic singer/songwriter style produce a sound that is sombre yet contagiously catchy.
Meliya moved to Los Angeles in 2012 where she released her debut single, Get Out,
in 2013. Get Out was Meliya's experiment with the rock/pop genre produced in collaboration with rising R&B producer, Rocky Byrd, and shredder guitarist, James Grossenheider.
Meliya has since returned to Brisbane, Australia and is recording her upcoming debut album "Catatonia".
