I had a real hard time figuring this group out. Usually I can fit artists into a certain genre and get a feel for the kind of music they produce, but this group was really different. They just make good music, not necessarily any certain genre, but to be honest, there is a need for more groups like this these days. Going from R & B to folk to French and Spanish language songs. Very eclectic and very enjoyable, to say the least. One look at their list of influences and you can see why they make such good music: Elvis Presley, Bob Marley, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin, The Fugees. Look for big things from this group in the future. Here is the current tour schedule for Rue Melo, as well as an MP3 and some links to find out more about them.
