I recently ran across a band I feel worthy of review and introduction. Melting Pot is a Toronto based band currently performing as a trio with a refreshing style and sound. Their recent release “All That You Dream” is a five song EP with All That You Dream as the dominate single but each song speaks to you in it’s own persuasive way. In an attempt to put a label on the style I find myself hearing influences but unable to define any one band. The guys in Melting Pot define themselves as rock & roll soul and that sums it up for me. After listening to the disc many times I noticed my favorite seemed to change as each song became more familiar, eventually making them all favorites! All songs are class, as well as the band, Nelson, Darin, and Carmelo. I won’t define who’s who as I want you to take a listen to the videos and their music on their website to get to know them yourself.
I did ask Nelson by phone why they’re releasing EP’s instead of full length albums and he stated, it just seems to be the way of marketing, so you can expect more singles from the guys of Melting Pot including a free download for signing up for their mailing list on their website. My phone conversation with Nelson was one of interest as they’re working towards a Midwest tour in the U.S. this fall so I’ll have more on the men who make up Melting Pot and the origin of their sound. Check them out, download their music, and follow them on Facebook! If you wanna see them live, let them know it!
