Blues/Rock Trio based out of East Nashville | Members Are: Mary Ellen Klein | Clay Golden | Nelson Icenhower In January 2012, while enjoying an open mic night at a local coffee shop in Nashville, roommates Nelson Icenhower and Clay Golden had the pleasure of hearing Mary Ellen Klein performing some of her solo work. They were immediately impressed by her vocal prowess and her intriguing lyricism. After a short introduction between the three, plans were made to meet up and play together. With a melding of Lounge jazz, Dirty Blues, and Vintage Rock influences, sweet sounds and chemistry abounded. They were all in agreement that what they had was special and needed to be shared. Shortly thereafter, jams became rehearsals, and the three decided to form Melon & The Mayhem.
