Mélat: “Happy Hour” [Social Distancing Pop Up Music Video Premiere]

Mélat is featured in ACL Fest 2020, Friday Oct. 9 at 7:45p. The Austin R&B singer-songwriter first played the Zilker Park fest in 2017.

Though there’s an endless array of people claiming to “do it all”, Austin’s Mélat lives up to the expectation. This Studio 1A savant‘s pitch perfect vocals are just an introduction to the young songwriter’s already impressive discipline, which seems to mature with each new recording.

Back in June, Mélat treated the KUTX multimedia crew to a socially distanced pop up session right outside the George Washington Carver Museum alongside keyboardist Xavier Davis for an incandescent rendition of  “Happy Hour”, shot and edited by phenomenal Jorge Sanhueza-Lyon and mixed by the KUTX-quisite Jake Perlman. If that’s not enough of a star-studded cast for you, tune in to Mélat’s virtual ACL Fest tonight at 7:45PM and, if you’re so inclined, complement your free “Happy Hour” download with a pre-game drink before you virtually hit the park.
