Rod Melancon Tour Dates


Rod Melancon has sent us information about his upcoming tour dates which will be starting October 22 in Austin, Texas.  Rod has a mixture of rock/americana in his style of play.  So check out the flyer above and see when he might be playing in your area to mark your calendars for an evening of musical storytelling.  Here is Rod’s music video for his single “Lights of Carencro” from his YouTube channel again for you to get a feel for this music — Richard:

Rod Melancon Tells Us About the “Lights of Carencro”


Rod Melancon is sharing with the ComicPop listeners his music video for his single “Lights of Carencro”.  Rod’s style reminds me of something you might hear from John Mellencamp.  It has one foot in the traditional rock scene and another in the country scene, almost southern rock.  “Lights of Carencro” has an old 1970’s throwback to it.  The single is a “story” song and it has an old tinny radio sound to the vocals.  Most people would recognize this sound effect as being similar to the CB radio voice in the “Convoy” single by C.W. McCall.  Now in “Lights of Carencro” the lyrics tell of a tragedy that befalls a family and end’s with the brothers coming together again in a haunting way (if I said anymore it would spoil the song).  The music video that Rod has with the single is just as haunting.  This single will be available next year on Rod’s LA 14 EP.  Until then check out “Lights of Carencro” music video by Rod Melancon, that he has provided through his YouTube channel – Richard:
