BIOGRAPHY

The Louisiana-born Melancon finds his inspiration not only with the cadre of luminaries he’s nodded to on Pinkville- Freddy Fender (“Corpus Christi Carwash”), Tom Petty, (“The Heartbreakers”), Springsteen, (“57 Channels…”) and Tom Waits, whose “Goin’ Out West” landed Melancon a Rolling Stone Country Top 10 list, but also with literary iconoclasts like the aforementioned McCarthy and Larry Brown.
