Solo artist Alex Melton, known online for his renditions of punk songs as country influenced songs, or indeed pop punk covers of other mainstream acts, has signed to **Pure Noise Records. **Alex Melton started out recording pre-production demos for bands back in 2012 & soon started to have a taste for recording himself.
Today, he is releasing two new songs both covering one of the most loved pop punk bands around, State Champs and having Ryan Scott Graham of the band feature on another.
I don’t write about music too often, but I was so happy to hear that one of my favorite independent artists signed a record deal.
I first found Alex Melton a few years ago when I was discussing with my wife how much better songs are when done in a pop-punk style. I searched YouTube for “pop punk cover” to find some examples and came across his cover of We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. I’ve been following him ever since.
My son jumps around and plays with his toy guitar whenever we play A Thousand Miles and I’ve listened to Getaway more times than I can count. But I’m excited to see what he’s able to do with the resources of a record label behind him.
