Product Notes

Orb Mellon is the alter ego and roots music moniker of Mike Malone, founder and guitarist of the seminal 90s indie rock band Dirt Merchants. As Orb Mellon, Mike mines the raw energy of pre-electric American roots music, particularly whiskey fueled house party delta blues. Influenced by the likes of Son House, Bukka White, Furry Lewis, and Charlie Patton, Orb performs pure, sonically aggressive acoustic blues, prompting one reviewer to identify Orb Mellon's work simply as 'blues in all it's primeval glory' (Tangled In The Roots, July 2006). Orb Mellon's debut album 'Love Above' was produced with a commitment to preserving the directness, spontaneity, and emotional urgency inherent in the best early blues recordings. To that end, all but one of the album's thirteen original tracks were recorded in a single day with the majority executed in only one take. The result is a raw, diverse, and exciting collection of original country blues. Enjoy!
