Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2007
Cross-cultural Rue Melo is the latest gem to emerge from Katrina Sirdofsky's famed Rebel Management. Rue Melo's highly anticipated debut, self-titled album, will be released September 25, 2007 as the first artist signed to Fighter Records, which is distributed by Universal Music Group's premier independent company, Fontana Distribution.
Rue Melo, a multilingual ingénue, oozes raw talent in English, French and Spanish. Born and raised in Paris, France to an artistic, multicultural family - her mother a dancer of French descent, her father an accomplished singer and guitarist from Uruguay - Rue Melo is a natural artist who is fearless, bold and full of life. Joined by guitarist Martin Estrada, bassist Bryan Bush, and drummer Idris al-Mutazz Tate, her soulful voice and witty lyrics lend themselves well to this cross-genre 12 track debut that is a true reflection of their many musical influences. Together they produce a unique sound that touches popular, world and urban music.
The dynamic first single "Check It," is a hip club track that highlights the group's eclectic alternative/R&B sound. "Check It" will hit radio and video shows this Fall. Illustrating the other end of the spectrum "Fallen," another notable track, is a soulful ballad that was featured in the Showtime series "The L-word" and appears on the album in English, French ("Tomber") and Spanish ("Cayendo").
