Article & photos by Melodie Yvonne

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (June 1, 2019) – Discovery Open Mic brought many amazingly talented artists to Coal Yard Coffee including the super skilled feature performer, Jess Jones, on Saturday, June 1, 2019. The Fantastic Flying Couch kicked off the good time followed by the headliner with his album release celebration. Jones’ set included multiple songs from his debut, Shut up and Play the Song (Live Session), including beautiful versions of “Most Likely” and “Rose Water” among many other alluring melodies.

The evening finished with a rousing open mic that kept the crowd going until sunset. The attendees were remiss to leave when the time came, but inevitably Coal Yard Coffee’s doors simply had to shut. Discovery Open Mic was once again over, but only with the promise of another session again soon on the next first Saturday of the month.

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
