Musical Performance

Enjoy the musical performance of singer-songwriter sisters (and Hawkeye Community College Alumnae) Amelia and Melina!

We are Amelia and Melina, Indie-Folk Singer-Songwriters, and sisters, based out of northern Iowa. We write music with an informed and unfiltered message about what it means to grow up in America.

Sometimes silly and often autobiographical, our lyrics are nostalgic, substantial and relatable. Our sound is simple and whimsical while remaining unapologetic, with blissfully harmonic Americana-style vocals. In a seamless fusion with
melodies, you’ll hear spoken word poetry and rap.

Born to artist parents, we were raised lovingly in an open and messy household, listening to musicians like The Roches, Bobby McFerrin, and Zap Mama. From an early age, we loved music with warm harmonies and vivid storytelling. This is the kind of music we write today. We sing about friendship, heartache, working in the service industry, and social justice, equality and change.
