MELLOTT, the collaboration of Brit guitarist Chas Castell and sunny all-American singer Jessica Mellott, have released their new single and lyric video “Shooting Stars”. Working with veteran producer Robert Cutarella (Sting, REM, Joss Stone), a two-time Grammy winner, the dreamy, pop-alternative track with an infectious chorus is the first single from the new EP, due this Fall.
The duo has evolved beyond the rockier sounds of previous EPs, allowing Cutarella to bring forth a more rich production, as well as challenge their songwriting skills. “Bob is a pro and knows how to craft hit singles,” says Chas. “He helped us take our love of big hooks, added a more modern and subtle soundscape, and made them more punchy and even bigger!” Jessica Mellott is a song bird of the highest quality, with a voice reminiscent of Pink, Sia and Kelly Clarkson. “Shooting Stars” allows for a soaring vocal performance, tempered with Chas’ indie-style guitar riffs.
