BIOGRAPHY

From the football field as an NFL Houston Oilers Cheerleader, to the stage and studio as Vaquero Records' Recording Artist, Melva. Even early in her career as a country artist, Melva was performing in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Las Vegas, and many Texas venues landing her in Nashville, performing many Nashville venues, and in many great recording studios, such as Hilltop, Germantown, Oceanway, County Q, Ultra Sound Productions and The Red Room Nashville.

Her delivery of both contemporary and classic country songs along with her ability to mix a taste of soul and her love for the motown sound, has given Melva many opportunities to share the studio with a long list of talent, top industry producers, award winning songwriters, and musicians in the industry, among which are Nashville Hall of Fame Songwriter Red Lane.

Often Melva has appeared and performed on special projects, including the single "Don't Feel Sorry For Me," written by Artist Tommy Allen to honor the U.S. Military, and the I-Tunes single, "What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted" and it's Music Video shot by HTV Studios, raising the awareness of homeless in Houston, Texas.

More excitement coming soon, as Melva has been recently signed by Dreamstreet Media Group, to play a role in a television pilot in a new series "Chameleon" set to begin shooting in Fall 2012, and Melva is set to appear on the soundtrack for "Chameleon" in 2013.

Her exciting new single "Out Of The Blue" produced by Tyler Summers is set for release on iTunes July 31st, on Vaquero Records.

Nashville Songbird Inked for New TV Series

Melva Lee Signed by Dreamstreet Studios for Role in TV Pilot of “Chameleon”

Houston, TX – While most of us know Melva Lee through her albums and performances, Executive Producer Donn Kizzee recognized Melva’s multi-talent ability when he cast her in the music video of  “What’s Become Of The Brokenhearted”.   “Not only is she a fine singer,” said Kizzee, “she surprised us with her acting ability and being able to handle the emotional nuisances.”

When Kizzee  and director Gary Griffin of the new hour-long urban-drama “Chameleon” were discussing who they would cast in the role of a nightclub singer who becomes embroiled in an undercover FBI operation, “Melva just seemed like the natural choice,” said Donn.  Production is scheduled to begin later this year, in Houston.

Melva’s fans and audiences will be able to see Melva in action on Colours TV in the U.S., and in Europe on M3 Satellite Network.

“Every once in a while when you do this work long enough, the good Lord smiles and you get blessed.  You meet that special talent that you know ‘has it.’ I’m not quite sure what it is, but you know when you see it.

Melva was that kind of find.”
