Songwriting, producing and singing - this is what I am doing with my life, trying to connect with people on a different level, a level that can not be reached with just normal words.
My name is Melvin Hein and I am a 19-year-old musician, born in a small town and now living in Berlin, Germany.
I have always had an urge to write my own songs, even when I was only about 10 years old but once I started playing the guitar, which was one of the best decisions I have made in my entire life, I started writing my own material around the age of fourteen.
About two years ago I decided to take my career to a more serious level and started putting together my first EP called "Whineapple Juice", which includes four original tracks. I spent a lot of time working on it and also put a lot of resources and thought into it and after about a year it was finally released on October 28th 2016. Throughout the last year - basically since the first EP has been released - I have learnt so many different things, not just about making music but about life in general as well. It definitely has not been the easiest year of my life, yet a very important one.
Now that I finally feel ready to bring out new stuff again, I am really excited for my new EP to be released in January. Unlike my first EP, this one does not really have a strict concept and I would not call it a coherent piece of work, it is more like a collection of songs that represent my last year.
So, this is basically what my life as an independent artist looks like at the moment. Let’s see how my story will go on.
