For Immediate Release Melisa Le Rue Live
24th June 2014
micheck™ entertainment, the visionary digital marketing company behind iUNITE, and the UAE's leading artist-booking agency The Fridge, announces Melisa Le Rue Live from Joes Pub, New York City. Melisa Le Rue Live is a debut EP release event which will be performed live in New York City and streamed live on micheck.com by Soul-Fusion artist from the UK, Melisa Le Rue.
‘Rather than look at differences let’s share our similarities,’ declares the cosmopolitan chanteuse, Melisa Le Rue. The glamorous but earthy Le Rue is an artist who embraces the world. “It’s an energy that jumps in the grooves of Melisa Le Rue. In just four tracks, ‘Lost Soul‘, ‘Let’s Go’, ‘Life Is Beautiful’ and ‘Unite’, Melisa’s expressive, sinuous voice leads us on a mini-trip through human nature and its capacity for renewal, from confrontation to release. Her sound is personal and open, always pulsing atop electro beats that are by turn subtle, moody, trip-hoppy and, in the case of ‘Let’s Go’, seriously high spirited.” -Vivien Goldman, BBC Radio 5’s “Up all night with Dotun Adebayo”
Melisa Le Rue's Debut EP is available for streaming from the micheck™ soundcloud page.
Event Date: Sunday, July 20th, 2014
Venue: Joe’s Pub, New York City

About Melisa Le Rue
The breadth of Melisa’s open-ness to the planet’s possibilities comes from childhood. Born to an English Quaker father and Filipino Catholic mother, they fostered teenagers including asylum seekers from Zimbabwe and Afghanistan, opening the musical child to experiences and sounds from across the world.
The beats and attitude come from the city that made Melisa – London, and her musical team including producers Colin Emmanuel and Adam Nicholas. Though she grew up in the West Midlands, Le Rue gravitated back to London, where she was born. While studying philosophy and sociology at the London School of Economics, she got involved in the London’s buzzing live music scene. In 2007, as part of the 12-piece collective Latin Dub Sound System, Le Rue was performing at some of the UKs most popular music spots, from KOKO’s to Glastonbury festival. She also connected with soulful hip-hop artist Yarah Bravo, (Oneself/ Ninja Tune) and performed with her at venues and festivals across London and Europe.
