Songwriter of "Love Wins”, “Whiskey River”, "Folly Beach Blues” (featuring Amber Carrington) and “Fireproof”.

Mel Washington, 38, was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. He’s been a singer songwriter since he was 18 years old and has played venues across the US, Australia and Europe. Mel has pursued his career relentlessly and without exception to his principles; he believes music to be profoundly healing and that it should be shared with an open heart and mind.


Aside from his talents on the stage, Mel is a gifted conversationalist able to get to the heart of any story through his emotional range and intelligence. His life experience has been marked by the usual trappings of a traveling musician, the charm of southern religion, and even a stint of homelessness. He brings a genuine warmth to conversation that evokes great story telling from even a casual acquaintance.
