Mel & The Tall Boys
Mel & The Tall Boys are a brand new band of weirdos who have gathered together to create bluesy, soulful rock music that blends together the best parts of punk, garage rock, and power pop.The project is a fresh collaboration between Mel Johnston, of Brooklyn-based soul band The Foxy Johnstons, and Kyle Lacy, rockabilly guitarist and singer formerly of Harlem River Noise. Mel and Kyle met at a session at Hive Mind Recording, where Mel was brought on to sing background vocals for one of Kyle’s latest songs. Since that day, they’ve remained close friends and collaborators. Their desire to make fun, energetic garage rock was always something they mused about. Now, the project they dreamed up will soon be out in the world for all to hear on their debut four-track EP, soon to be released independently. They look forward to causing non-life-threatening injuries when people rock out at their shows.
