Sydney based vocalist, Phoenix Melody delivers a perfectly crafted slice of RnB/Pop with her debut single Be The One. The sundrenched chorus executive produced by That Cinnamon Sound is complimented by a killer chart production from hit makers DBF Production (Sean Paul, Usher, Ellie Goulding) and Tha Hitbangaz (Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Next), as they merge afro-beat rhythms, deep bass stabs and razor sharp RnB vocal production.
Phoenix is not a stranger to the limelight, having live performances, reality TV and various other credits to her name. After taking a small step away from writing and performing following a successful run on X-Factor in 2013 the young singer rekindled her hunger for music, heading to the US in 2016 to create her debut EP. Teaming up with Easter Isle Media’s Sherman Easter (Akon, Lil Wayne) and Sylvester Carter (Sanctuary Music Group, Music World), the team worked to create a fresh R&B pop sound with a global flavor, recording in Los Angeles, Atlanta and London to achieve the perfect creative flow.
Throughout her career, Phoenix has always placed herself front and centre in her music. Comfortable with the duality of her personality, she embraces elements of both the strong feme fatale and the chilled-out girl next door and reflects both in her music. In a recent interview with Cliché Mag, she explains;
“My music really reflects my personality. I’m laid-back, but also super outgoing. Overall, I’m all about finding that balance and enforcing positivity – Knowing yourself allows more room for positive thinking and less room for negative energy.”
Expect an official music video and remix package out soon, plus Phoenix’s first full EP chalked in for release later this year.
Be The One Launches on 27 May at ‘The Carter’, 16 O’Connell Street, Sydney
