We’ll be looking to hear more from this precocious new artist!.

“I Don’t Wanna See You Cryin’ Anymore” is a simple folk sound with a brilliantly played acoustic guitar lines that pulls from elements of jazz, blues, and folk music. The slow picking, sets a perfect tone for Adam Melchor’s gorgeous voice to float on top.  In reality the song is an apology type song. Adam is singing to a close friend that he has let down, and he is owning up to the mess that he had made with this beautiful song. He comes across as being a caring and genuine person through the emotional and heartfelt delivery of the vocals. The acoustic nature of the song gives more room for the lyrics to really be heard and digested, and hopefully that means Adam Melchor’s apology has been accepted.

Adam Melchor graduated college with a degree in opera, but as a singer-songwriter, he specializes in dreamy, harmony-dense, Technicolor folk-pop songs like “Three Hours Ahead,” which celebrates a friendship that transcends time zones. Melchor, who recently moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles, sings about what he knows: the search for personal growth and connection, overcoming doubt and holding onto the slivers of the past worth keeping. The relocation proved to be fruitful and has since propelled the singer-songwriter’s career as an artist.

Acoustic singer/songwriter Adam Melchor is also streaming a new song titled “Plan On You.” The track is taken from Melchor’s new Plan On You EP set to arrive on March 20th. Check out the new song below.

With a soft instrumental introduction and Melchor’s delicate indie vocals, “Plan On You” brings us to a nostalgic place. Surrounded by unknown plans, the opera-singer-turned-bedroom-folk-artist sings of the one certainty in his life, crooning, “I don’t have a plan/ I just planned on you.” An ode to the modern love song, Melchor illustrates his brilliant ability to write simple and raw lyrics that resonate with you long after the song has reached its end.

Filmed in the quiet comfort of a living room, Nashville indie pop band Frances Cone delighted us with a Buzzsession that carries an openness and honesty not often found in the genre.  The band has been praised for their compelling, emotional live show and captivating recording Lead vocalist Christina Cone comes from a line of musicians, and it is clear that music runs through her veins in these energized, emotional performances. Director Sonya Goddy chose black and white visuals to mesh with the purity of Cone’s voice and the band’s sound, and we think you will love their sincere, simple style.

A song about the desperation of impending loss, “85” features the spacey whine of a pedal steel and the buzz of a beautifully arranged guitar, creating an undeniable electricity in the room. What starts as a lullaby-like whisper from Cone crescendos into something full of power. Her angelic vocals morph into an edgy grunginess that creates an enticing blend of folk and rock. In “Unraveling,” a militant snare drum contrasts with the gentility of the male vocals, and Cone erupts with a warm, soulful narrative about breaking down. By the last verse, Cone has learned to embrace the calm of letting something go, and you can feel the catharsis with her. We cannot wait for more from this captivating, inspired group.
