Hybridized traditional folk music with contemporary instrumentation. A lo-fi sound infused with a strong rock aesthetic.

Mellish has been making music for quite some time – originally forming in 1995. We evolved much the same way most bands do. We started out playing for friends and local parties and shortly graduated to paying gigs. Huntington Village, New York City. We’ve been fortunate to play The Mercury Lounge, Arlene Grocery, Meow Mix, Opium Den, The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall. We’ve always meshed well. One of us always seems to have a response to where the other is attempting to go creatively. We’re blessed in that music happens to us very naturally – Its unforced. There are definite influences to our sound. We like to think we are influenced by a lifetime of listening intently. We strive to keep the material fresh. Although we don’t get the opportunity to work as much as we’d like – there is a definite evolution that takes place. We’re proud of what we’ve been able to create over the years. Thanks for listening!
