Melody studied with internationally-acclaimed jazz artist Meredith d'Ambrosio. Melody currently resides in Cambridge, MA, and is a rare musical polyglot. In addition to the Melody Stanford Jazz Combo, she performs as folk singer-songwriter and is also the lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist for the art rock band Yes Commander.
