Melo review by John P. Olsen at New Age Music World

Summer is here and Melo continues to receive fine reviews. John P. Olsen at New Age Music World recently gave the album a good listen:

«Jonas Kroon is a Norwegian composer, producer and artist taking full advantage of his tenure in the music business to produce one of the most unique debut albums I have heard in recent memory.»

For the next two months I will donate all money from Melo record sales to tsunami and earthquake aid in Japan

Dear friends,

I have been shocked by the recent happenings in Japan as much as you have, and I have been thinking about good ways for me to help.

I guess music is what I do best, and as it happens I will soon have a new record out. So what could be better than giving away money from record sales?

Until 1 June 2011 I will give away all the money I make from Melo sales to humanitarian relief and emergency services in Japan. I will donate via the Norwegian Red Cross.

You can order your signed copy of Melo here.

Here is more information on how you can help.
