Paul Melancon plays music. Literate, moody, indie-pop music. He has been graced with an unusually gifted voice and a knack for writing well-crafted pop songs hiding disturbed and defective characters inside. He's released three critically-acclaimed CDs (not the press kit kind of acclaim, he's a genuine critical darling): Two solo (Slumberland on M Records and Camera Obscura on Daemon Records) and one with his band The Arts and Sciences (Hopeful Monsters, also on Daemon Records).
He's toured with the Indigo Girls, played International Pop Overthrow four times (Los Angeles, Boston and Atlanta), Music Midtown (Atlanta) and SXSW. Paste Magazine says he's "in a category with the most talented of indie-pop singer-songwriters."
