Words & Music

Moses Melkonian

As mentioned on my New Year’s post, I will be featuring the music of other musicians that I like on here from time to time and tonight is one of those times. I recently came across an unsigned artist from the UK named Moses Melkonian. I had never heard his music before, but when I watched his video for the song “We are Mighty, We are Young,” I was immediately drawn in. There is a simplicity in the message, yet the pulse — the vibe — of the music adds such depth and movement. I also like that he uses the spoken word for his lyrics because it, along with the unique, gruff quality of his voice lends a nice contrast to the bright notes in the melody.

From the information I gathered on his website, he is an independent artist working hard to get his music out to the masses, so if you like his music be sure to pass it on. Good luck to you Moses! Check it out for yourself. You can see him on facebook and here at his website: http://mosesjunkyard.wordpress.com/. If you look him up, let me know what you think.

I tried to embed the video of “We are Mighty, We are Young”, but had trouble, but you can view it via this link–


Happy Friday all!
