Carmelo Cianflone, known as Melo Makes Music, is an independent artist from the Southside of Chicago. As a rising talent, Melo’s sound can be described as alternative music rooted in Hip-Hop. By incorporating strong instrumentals like strings and live sounds, he produces a technical dynamic to his otherwise grunge Hip-Hop and R&B style. As an artist of many crafts, Melo produces much of his own artistic visuals including short films, teasers and photo campaigns that illustrate the depth and impact of his work. Through his music and related content, Melo aims to bridge cultural and artistic gaps.
As of 2017, Melo has collaborated with Chicago artists such as Ravyn Lenae, Taylor Bennett and producer, Martin $ky, amongst others. 2018 Is proving to be a very bright year for Melo – newly an ambassador for Soundcloud's first Creators Campaign, as well as his first official showcase SXSW appearance, and crushing 24 live performances with Taylor Bennett in the last year. As a brand, Melo Makes Music embodies the notion that as an artist, one should not constrict themselves to concrete definitions or limitations.
