During the 1990s, Brown legally changed her name to Melleny Melody and became active in the dance music scene, first in live performances in Toronto and then as the recording artist. Though her legal name remains Melleny Melody, she now records under the Melleefresh moniker. She is also the President of the Play Records label, which produces and releases electronic dance music. In 2008, Melleefresh was nominated for a Juno Award for her collaboration with deadmau5, entitled "Afterhours".
Melleny Melody has also developed several film and video production projects with her husband Clive A. Smith under the banner Musta Costa Fortune, including music videos for Play Records' artists. As Melleny Melody and Melleefresh At home in Toronto, she first came to the attention of the pop art scene with her use of everyday items as decoration and her pink "Princessmobile", a Volkswagen adorned with everything from plastic baby dolls and trophies to boa-trimmed seat covers. She also became a much sought after baker of "art cakes". Breaking into the music industry as Melleny Melody in the 1990s, she opened the Bubbalicious Lounge in Toronto, where she would dress up in vibrant costumes and wigs to produce and host a rowdy show of ribald classics and new renditions on old themes.Make Melleefresh Playlist
