Hits like a huge dose of serotonin to the brain” - Aaron Mitta

400 Word Bio

Some musicians start out as shy, self-conscious, social misfits who only later bloom into passionate, creative, and confident people. Mitch Melodia is one of them. 

After playing hundreds of shows, performing at festivals, and recording with numerous bands in New England, he moved West and started his own “band” Alpha Pegasi. For his project’s upcoming releases, hundreds of original songs were distilled into a select few for a four-part series of EPs. The first one, titled Love Sex Money Part I is due for release on 8/26/22. 

“I feel like I've got to one of many in a club of many millions, " Mitch says "At least I hope I'm one of very many people who really enjoy giving, earning, receiving and having a whole lot of love, sex, and money in life.” 

A cohesive blend of danceable, sexy, and upbeat grooves come together for a tasty rock/pop/alternative stew. Influences run from Jam-band giants like Phish, the Grateful Dead, and the Allman Brothers Band, classic rock, and more pop approaches like Tame Impala, Beck, Arcade Fire, Talking Heads, and the funkier, lyrical side of Khruangbin. 

“Alpha Pegasi has a Tame Impala-ish approach in the studio and a Phish-ish mentality for live shows,” he says. “Improvisation is a staple of every show but when recording, I keep it concise. Aside from “Star,” I had a great drummer for the songs on Alpha Pegasi. But on the Love, Sex, Money EPs, it’s been a fun, creative challenge to play and arrange all instruments on record.” 

Beyond creating incredible music, Mitch also aims to work with non-profits and health-based organizations. A main financial focus for Alpha Pegasi is donating 5% of all profits to environmental groups like San Diego EarthWorks. Mitch aspires to use his music and art as a vehicle to support environmental and health-improving causes, including mental-health practices. 

“I’ve had a few therapists over the years to get help with personal issues,” he recalls. “Every counselor has been very helpful, but sessions can be expensive. Down the road, I want to create Alpha Health to make holistic based mental-health programs more accessible and affordable.” 

In these twisted and trying times, Love Sex Money Part I offers glimmers of light, enjoyment, and good vibes. “Through making great music and performing great shows, I want to bring people together and create an ever-growing community of fun, loving, mindful, and generous humans.”
