Melodime is a Virginia-based band with influences in both country and rock that features emotionally charged anthems, piano driven hooks, and energetic guitar solos for a dynamic, organic sound.

Melodime, featuring Brad Rhodes (lead vocals, guitar), Sammy Duis (piano, organ, bass), Tyler Duis (drums), and Jon Wiley (guitar, mandolin, dobro), has performed over 100+ shows annually throughout the continental United States, sharing the stage with such well-known acts as Sam Hunt, Eli Young Band, A Thousand Horses, and Sister Hazel.

The band has also left its mark internationally with performances in Mexico, Canada, and Europe, all while founding and running a charity, ‘Now I Play Along Too,’ which provides musical instruments and lessons to underprivileged children in the DC area, Florida, Nepal, Kenya, and Haiti.

The band is quickly becoming a fan-favorite in the festival scene, playing five consecutive Rock Boat cruises, as well as Musikfest, Herndon Festival, Mile of Music, and other events. In their hometown of Northern Virginia, the group has performed at popular venues such as The State Theatre, 9:30 Club, The Hamilton, and Baltimore Soundstage.

Melodime will be rolling out their new album in 3 EP installments starting with the first single "Song of the Summer" on June 29th.

Alex Cano
Alex Cano is a folk/alternative rock songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist from South Salem, NY. Originally a drummer/percussionist, Alex has been studying music since the age of 5, and has been performing professionally since high school. He is a graduate of Ithaca College, and currently splits time between Ithaca, NY and New York City.

Alex’s writing style ranges from high energy alternative/groove rock to reflective folk/Americana with elements of outlaw country. His powerful baritone voice has often been compared to artists such as Johnny Cash, Eddie Vedder, and Jim Morrison. Live performances are an unapologetic display of raw rock and roll, decorated with improvisation, varying set lists, and refined virtuosity. Alex performs frequently in both full band and solo acoustic settings, and has toured extensively throughout the entire Northeast, New York City, Nashville, and California.

In 2017, Alex released his solo debut single, “Back Against the Wall”. Engineered by Grammy Award winning sound engineer Mikhail Pivavorov, it has since been featured on radio stations throughout the US. Alex is currently in the process of recording his debut record, with an expected release in 2018.
