Melody As Truth
In a world where things are moving so fast and our lives are polluted with so much noise, a label like Melody As Truth brings us a welcome breath of fresh air. Launched in 2014 by renowned ambient artist Jonny Nash, MAT started off primarily as an outlet for his own work. Now based in Amsterdam, after moving from London to Bali, one can say that Nash likes to explore the musical boundaries of the world keeping in tune with whatever melody comes his way. Bridging gaps between balearic to ambient, new age to chamber music and always keeping an emphasis on space within sound. The label serves as an outlet for many of Nash’s legendary collaborations with renowned artists such as Suzanne Kraft or Gigi Masin as well as shining a light on other like minded talents.
