introduction

MELANIE GAYLE...aka Mel G...a NW London comedienne with many strings to her bow. Known for acting, presenting, singing and rapping, Mel G just loves entertaining and making people laugh. So her latest journey into comedy is perfect for her. Mel G is full of energy, a bit cheeky and keeps it real. A recent Comedy Novice Graduate (March 2014), Golden Jester Quarter finalist (June 2014) Funny Women Award Semi Finalist @Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Aug 2014), Golden Spud Winner & Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year Quarter Finalist (Sept 2014). This lady is making a name for herself on the circuit & is definitely one to watch. Mel is also the Host/MC of UK Unsigned Comedy & Sound Movement Live.

Melanie is very charismatic, bubbly and great on camera and has always wanted to be a TV Presenter. After doing a presenting course Melanie was chosen to present a few music related shows for Inna TV. This was a great experience and inspired Melanie to present and produce her own unique International Music Video show called “The Real Thing”. The show features fresh International talent from a variety of musical genres. Giving new artists that much needed promotion and exposure required to make it in the music industry. With her creativity, passion, knowledge and love for music the show is bound to be a success. Performing as a rapper & R&B vocalist “CaraMel G aka MTG” for many years provided a unique journey through the music industry and built up a catalogue of valuable insights and knowledge. Organic progression lead to experiences working in a number of music related positions including; radio DJ, casting director for music videos, hosting talent shows and artist manager which involved developing local artists in her borough of Brent. Melanie has big plans and would love to be as big as Oprah, hosting her own chat show or owning her own network one day!! This lady is a quadruple threat and is definitely one to watch.

The Real Thing

Role:

Presenter & Producer

Location:

Pinewood Studios

The Real Thing is a 10 min International Music Video Show for Independent artists. I am concentrating on Independent Artists as I know from first-hand experience how hard it is to get exposure on mainstream channels, when you are not a major artist like Beyonce or Jay Z. The Real Thing showcases fresh talent from around the on a fortnightly/monthly basis. A lot of these artists will have their videos on You Tube, but they would not have had the opportunity to be broadcast on TV before, and for the international artists it is a great opportunity to be seen by a UK audience. So our viewers will be watching music videos they would not have seen before.
