Thanks to sites like Kickstarter, anyone with a great idea has the ability to see their dream fulfilled without having to sacrifice their vision in order to gain funding. Kickstarter also helps artists spread their music even though they might be on an indie budget. In addition to being a super-talented singer, Booth newcomer Mélat is a savvy businesswoman. The Austin native set up a Kickstarter to help push her debut EP, Canon Aphaea, worldwide and within a month she had well exceeded her goal of $4,200. Given the quality of new single Move Me, it’s no wonder fans were eager to support her music. Over Jansport J‘s laid-back, guitar-driven boardwork, Mélat showcases her bubbly, yet powerful vocals. Move Me does not appear on Canon Aphaea, but the project is available for free download via her official site.
