    1Talk is Cheap (EP) [2006]


    Full Name: David Melillo
    Birthday: June 12, 1988

    After moving to Celebration, Florida in December 2000, he learned how to play the guitar, the bass guitar and the piano and eventually began writing songs. While attending Celebration High School, he played in church ensembles, as well as amateur rock bands, before fronting the short-lived garage band Trexx as the lead singer/bassist, along with guitarists Clark Spurlock and Tyler Norman and drummer Nick Petriella.

    In mid-2004, Melillo transferred to Valencia Community College in Orlando, Florida, where he participated in dual enrollment. Simultaneously, he formed the Taking Back Sunday-inspired indie rock band Arcana with fellow students. While their submitted two-song demo fell on deaf ears with Drive-Thru Records, the band split in late 2004, a mere four months after their formation. Following the failures of his past bands, Melillo decided to write some solo material, recorded three acoustic songs and uploaded them to his PureVolume profile. He sent a link to Drive-Thru Records owner Richard Reines, who invited Melillo to play a showcase for the label and signed him immediately in December 2004, at the tender age of sixteen.

    Come January, Melillo made his debut on the Drive-Thru Records and PureVolume compilation album Bands You Love, Have Heard of, and Should Know (2005) with his song "Wait for It". He began playing acoustic one-man shows, while going to college two days out of the week to obtain his high school diploma. Melillo spent the following summer recording with producer James Wisner, as well as putting his touring band together, which made its stage debut on August 27, 2005 at the Backbooth in Orlando, Florida. The band comprised guitarist Spurlock, bassist Matt Mendes (who had previously been in Arcana) and drummer Dave Hernandez (who was soon replaced by Nate Mullins).

    Melillo's debut EP, titled Talk Is Cheap, is scheduled to be physically released on June 13, 2006 with one extra track than in its digital form.
