Melodime is a Virginia-based band with influences in both country and rock that features emotionally charged anthems, piano driven hooks, and energetic guitar solos for a dynamic, organic sound.
Melodime, featuring Brad Rhodes (lead vocals, guitar), Sammy Duis (piano, organ, bass), Tyler Duis (drums), and Jon Wiley (guitar, mandolin, dobro), has performed over 100+ shows annually throughout the continental United States, sharing the stage with such well-known acts as Sam Hunt, Eli Young Band, A Thousand Horses, and Sister Hazel.
The band has also left its mark internationally with performances in Mexico, Canada, and Europe, all while founding and running a charity, ‘Now I Play Along Too,’ which provides musical instruments and lessons to underprivileged children in the DC area, Florida, Nepal, Kenya, and Haiti.
The band is quickly becoming a fan-favorite in the festival scene, playing five consecutive Rock Boat cruises, as well as Musikfest, Herndon Festival, Mile of Music, and other events. In their hometown of Northern Virginia, the group has performed at popular venues such as The State Theatre, 9:30 Club, The Hamilton, and Baltimore Soundstage.
Melodime will be rolling out their new album in 3 EP installments starting with the first single "Song of the Summer" on June 29th.

“Our band has been through an evolution these last couple years,” says The Brevet frontman Aric Chase Damm. “We absolutely love the writing and recording process, but somewhere along the way, our focus shifted more towards touring and performing live, and the music we were creating just naturally started to reflect that energy. The road more than anything helped us grow and mature into the band we’ve become.”
Nowhere is that growth and maturity more evident than LEGS, The Brevet’s explosive, ambitious new album. Recorded at the band’s own studio in their native Orange County, California, the collection is the five-piece’s most deeply personal and lyrically sophisticated yet, tackling perception and identity in the digital age with both subtle nuance and blunt force. The songs remain as cinematic as ever, full of rousing choruses and sing-along hooks, but they carry more weight here, propelled inexorably forward by thunderous percussion and blazing electric guitars that blend rock and roll snarl with R&B swagger. LEGS is an album unafraid to face down the unknowable, and Damm found himself mining his personal life more than ever before during the writing process, taking an unflinching look inwards to examine the dark alleys and existential dead ends that often sidetrack us in the pursuit of happiness.
“I feel like we live in this cloud of social media right now that’s so focused on projecting and consuming that it stifles our creativity,” reflects Damm. “A lot of the songs on this record deal with the search for something real: true relationships, true happiness, true identity.”
The Brevet’s quest for truth, ironically, began with fiction. The band’s roots stretch back to Damm’s college days, when he began writing scores for student films and discovered he had a knack for crafting the kind of evocative music that yields unforgettable on-screen moments. Those early songs led to a licensing deal that would eventually find The Brevet’s tracks everywhere from major films like Ashby (Paramount) and The Good Lie (Warner Bros) to TV shows like Lucifer and American Idol. The band’s contagious energy proved an ideal fit for sports channels like the MLB Network and ESPN’s SEC Network, and the group even landed a coveted Apple placement. Songs from their two independent albums (2013’s ‘Battle of the Heart’ and 2017’s ‘American Novel’) racked up more than nine million streams on Spotify and earned coverage from Paste, The LA Times, OC Weekly, Pop Matters, and more.
