Live: The Meltones
The Meltones are Carol Foster, vocals; Clive Melton, guitar and harmonica, Simon Bishop; cajon and Roger Southard; bass guitar, a Singer/Songwriter led band based in the southwest town of Frome. It boasts a sophisticated jazzy pop sound, layered with a tight rhythm section and R&B-inflected female vocals. The Meltones have carved out a specific niche by splicing a deep love of folk and jazz with a mixture of pop craft and a slice of upbeat song writing, although never far away is a touch of unrequited love in their lyrics that is called the blues. Their covers include some blue-eyed soul and a touch of gospel. In their own words they say, “We play self-penned songs with some dancey covers thrown in. Our songs are about journeys, the road, love and other demons.”
Doors open at 7, music from 8/8.30. Free entry.
