I'm Fred Mollin.
Welcome to this website, and please know that we are still very much a work in progress, but with our first album released, Lisa Mills’ THE TRIANGLE, Jan 24, 2020, we haven’t slowed down for a second. In the midst of the global pandemic, we know, now more than ever before, people need music.
We released our 2nd album, Mandy Barnett’s A NASHVILLE SONGBOOK, in August, and we previewed this project with the digital single “THE END OF THE WORLD” in September 2019.
We will be releasing the next Mandy Barnett album in May 2021. It will be a game changer for Mandy and, we hope, it'll be considered a classic recording.
New signing for 2020, Jackie Evancho, brings a great new musical angle to our unique roster.
With an incredible and truly illustrious career, at age 20, her first album with Melody Place will be released in early 2021. Her first project will be a concept album that will bring her new legions of fans, as well as truly captivate her worldwide followers. The first single, a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “RIVER”, is being released digitally worldwide on Oct 23. 2020
On another front, after years of producing and writing children’s music for Walt Disney Records, I have written, performed and produced the first offering from our new division, Melody Place Kids. The album, “IT’S GREAT TO BE A KID”, is an album of sweet songs about life and living that speak directly to a young child. Besides my own featured vocals, I enlisted brilliantly talented co-conspirators to perform and sing, as well, and we will release the album, March 12th, 2021.
I am passionately involved in every part of the company as president, and along with my partner, Leigh Shockey, we will be dedicated to keeping the album art form alive and giving the world great new music.
My life as a freelance record producer and music arranger will continue, but I take the role of president of this record label very seriously and it will be my first priority. I want to make sure that Melody Place becomes synonymous with great music and becomes a haven for brilliant artists. I respect the album as an art form and believe the album should not disappear anymore than books or movies should.
I know that if labels like Melody Place don’t exist, there will be less important music available to the audience that still wants to listen and embrace the magic and power of great musical works.
We have a slogan for Melody Place, so from now on when you think about the label, you’ll also think about a place “where there is music". That’s what we hope to be. We want to be that destination.
