Purple Melon has taken many different forms over the last ten years. Originally, the name was used by a Los Angeles based band who were tearing up the scene. However, the group drifted apart and the website was going unloved. As it happened, the lead singer’s stepbrother (that’s me) wanted to start up a new music blog. With all the requisite permissions I threw a website together, set up some social networks and started sharing my favourite emerging artists with anybody who cared to listen.

I got a little help along the way from friends, freelance writers and other artists but it’s mainly just been me for the last three years. So, what you’re reading is what I’m listening to. If you like the blog, and want to help me out a bit, all I ask is that you support it via:
