Event Description

Melange is a duo made up of Monique Candelaria and Matthew Harrell.

Albuquerque, New Mexico’s rising star, Monique Candelaria, is a native New Mexican showing her amazing talents all over the world and hypnotizing her audience with her abundance of strength and beauty. Since Graduating from the University of New Mexico in 2009 she has shown her ability to manipulate her self-image and make a name for herself by being cast in 4 full-featured films in the last two years. Her repertoire includes a 1940’s period film called “Bless me, Ultima” directed by Carl Franklin, “Ten Year” staring Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson and Justin Long, as well as a horror film called “The Banshee Chapter” being ranked 4th on the character cast list as the mentally corrupt antagonist due to chemical experimentation. Her most recent accomplishment is being cast in the award winning television series Breaking Bad for the #501 episode titled “Live Free or Die.” On her time off she has been modeling for Siren Audio Studios for the audio book covers ”Sid Guy Private Eye” and “Sin Temer La Noche” which is Albuquerque’s first audio cinema providing a full cast list of local actors to narrate each book. She has also reached as far as the UK with her beauty by gracing the cover, “Seven Point Eight” written by Marie Harbon from Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, England. Besides her talent to act and model she has shown her amazing vocal range by singing a variety of music with only vocals and a guitar in the duo “Mélange.” One thing is clear; this is only the beginning of a prosperous journey that will captivate the world around her.

Matthew Harrell was born with a love of music. His mother would tell him stories of how he as an infant, lying in front of the stereo, would try to match pitch with the music. He started on saxophone in the 5th grade and played through college at LSU. There he earned his B.A. in Music Education. He first picked up a guitar towards the end of high school when he became tired of waiting to play a solo while everyone else was jamming. His older brother taught him a few chords and he never looked back. Guitar took center stage and after playing in several bands in Baton Rouge, La. he moved to Los Angeles to chase his rock and roll dreams. After three years in L.A., he returned to Baton Rouge to rejoin his old band. They played together until he and his girlfriend moved to Albuquerque to follow her job opportunity. They got married in 2005 and started a family. After almost a decade of not playing on stage, Matt is excited to start gigging again.
