Melissa Seitz (AKA Kaleo Crimson) / Bio

Melissa Seitz, aka Kaleo Crimson, dubbed “The Dark Queen of Pop" began her career
in the entertainment industry working as a professional model and actress,
as well as a singer/songwriter. Her acting career involved several roles in
TV shows such as One Tree Hill, some major motion picture productions, various independent productions,
as well as a commercial for Verizon Wireless. Her first musical performance
was at the infamous Club La Vela in Panama City, Fl opening for Sean
Kingston. Shortly after that she moved to New York where she modeled full
time, booking a show for Levi Okonuv at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. She
also worked with designer Cynthia Rowley, the prestigious Parsons Fashion
School for a Max Mara campaign, the “Sex and the City” referenced La Pettie
Coquette lingerie store, and Modelle Sportswear, among others. During this
time she released two songs (“Believer” and “Damn Too Pretty”) produced
by Chapter 7, which she not only sang but wrote. “Believer” ended up on
Chapter 7’s album “The Color Scheme” available on iTunes. She performed
both songs and was well-received at Crash Mansion in New York City. She
also went to San Francisco where she worked with Dave Dresden and Mikail
Johnson of Dresden and Johnson on a song titled “Crashing Down”, which
has yet to be released. But this was only the beginning of Melissa’s music
Shortly after returning to Atlanta from the Big Apple, Melissa Seitz
began working on her demo album at Hot Beats Studio in Atlanta and The Hit
Factory in Miami. Soon after completion, her demo was taken into the hands
of the remarkably talented and multi-platinum producer Teddy Bishop who
also acted as a consultant to the artist. She has performed everywhere Crash Mansion New York to several performances in the Atlanta area at several venues including Vinyl at Centerstage, Smith's Olde Bar, Parkside Tavern, Sutra Lounge and many more. She has been praised time and again for her performances and it only confirms that music is where she belongs. She also performed at the world renowned Webster Hall in New York where she caught the attention of the multi platinum and award winning Earl Cohen, and they have begun to work on some new material with plans to continue as their schedules deem fit. She also performed and walked as a model in the elite VIP Exclusive Fashion event, sponsored by Lamborghini, also in NYC.

Melissa Seitz is now working on her second album, collaborating with several producers including the remarkable, multi-platnium Spec Turner, as well as other talents such as Moe, J Beatzz and Kid Envy in Atlanta while collaborating with several other artists, such as Layla Martinez, Kaison, Lil Jay and Mig (Jock) from Crime Mob, and Nefertiti, as well as working on some solo work. This has led her to some very elite studios, such as Outkast’s Stankonia and Akon’s exclusive studio. She has been recently commended not only on her distinct voice and quirky yet sexy image, but her song-writing as well. This has been a thrill for the determined artist who has been writing songs for as long as she can remember. She now looks to many different genres of music, from pop to alternative to hip hop music for inspiration. Besides becoming one of the biggest pop stars (or gritty pop as she has affectionately named her distinct sound) and song-writers of her time, she is also greatly motivated to become a philanthropist and help those who are less fortunate. She also plans to write a few screenplays and another book, as her first novel was written though never published at age 12.
