Melody Noel Hernandez graduated from the prestigious Clive Davis School of Recorded Music at New York University where she was mentored by Lauren Davis (entertainment attorney) and taught by Benny Blanco, Stargate, and Questlove. During her sophomore year she signed her first publishing deal as a writer to Imagem Music (2012-2015). Upon her graduation she signed with Primary Wave Management who represents artists and writers such as Cee Lo Green, Melissa Ethridge and Smokey Robinson.
Melody has had an Itunes #1 single with Jennifer Lopez and Lin Manuel Miranda and collectively has over 10 million plays on Spotify as a featured artist. Melody has worked with writers and artists such as Tommy Parker (Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Janet Jackson), Dave Aude (Selena Gomez, Grammy- winning), The Monarch (Dr. Dre, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Grammy-winning), Autumn Rowe (Stargate, Fifth Harmony, Karmin, Leona Lewis, and Cher Lloyd), Shaggy, Fernando Garibay, David Kahn, Joe Mardin, Andrew Cedar, Shep Soloman, Jayson Dezuzio, Anthony Bell, Georgia Ku (Martin Garrix, Skrillex), The Agency, Rob Persaud and DJ Freedo. Her expertise with melodies, lyrics, and conceptual ideas makes her a versatile collaborator and artist.
Melody’s first hand education in the music industry from a song writer’s perspective puts her in the unique position to manage Influence Music from a creative’s point of view. She brings the knowledge and experience that comes with a successful career as well as the sensitively and sensibility of an artist who has seen the shortcomings of the ever-evolving industry. Melody’s involvement in the secular music industry has given her the knowledge of what works and should be practiced in the faith-based industry; but as a songwriter she knows the music always comes first.
