Melsen’s first collection of poetry titled “QUACK” will be published July 2020. It will be (self)published by MelsenWorks.
It has taken a long time to finish the book as Melsen spend most of his time teaching, making paintings, collages, making music and video’s. He has also been writing a children book titled “Edward”. Quack is full of rebellious and humorous short poems. Some fictional but most of it true. Melsen doesn’t write poetry in the classical sense. Note: if you are close minded this is not the book for you.
This summer Tom Melsen will exhibit his painting Morvarc’h at Gallery Louarn in France. Painting is part of the group exhibition titled La Ville d’Ys. This work will also be available to buy at the exhibition. The exhibition will open July 2020.

To everyone who supported us, listened to our music, thank you very much.
We’re sorry to inform you that the new record “Romantic_ism”, will NOT be released on January 6, 2017. The release has been pushed back to sometime later in 2017 (release date yet unknown). We’ve chosen to release the record later so we can put more time into production. The record has been in the making for several months now, but we still feel it’s not as good as it can be. We’re working hard on the record, and we’ll keep you updated through our Facebook page and this website. Thanks for understanding
