The Melvilles – History and Verse

David moved in across the alley from Karl. Steve bumped into David at a bar. David took a job at Dan’s company. Dan told us about a family member of his, Brian, and Brian had been in another band with Jeff. We all write and arrange songs together. The result is a friendly mongrel with a twangy, funky, bluesy, jangly, rock & roll bark.
