Mel Guérison is a composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and performer based in Portland, Oregon.
Guérison grew up playing classical violin, piano & guitar from the age of six and began writing songs, performing in bars and touring internationally with an orchestra as a teenager. She has gone on to tour both nationally and internationally with bands like Other Lives, Alexandra Savior, Allen Stone, Matt Pond PA, Moorea Masa and her own band, Merō, and has recorded with and written string arrangements for many others.
Mel has always had a deep love for film and composition, and her music has always had a somewhat dark, cinematic bent. Her scoring and production is no different- combining lush orchestral swells and haunting sound scapes with sometimes tense and other-worldly moments of dissonance and resolve. She draws on influences from Johnny Greenwood, Max Richter, Jon Brion and Steve Reich.
