Mango Melody is the brainchild of brother and sister Mike and Tracey Stockalper, who hail from Encinitas in North County San Diego, California. Mike and Tracey are notoriously goofy people who for years pursued their own “serious” separate musical inclinations only to find that when playing together what seemed to emerge was music of a more playful, dynamic, fun, and much more life-celebrating flavor.
After spending some time playing and performing mostly cover music around North County San Diego, the duo eventually formed Mango Melody in 2012, and immediately undertook to write original songs. What resulted was “Fruit of Happiness”, their first album, scheduled to be self-released in early fall 2013.
The duo’s goal for their first work was to in create music specifically geared to bring into a live forum. In other words, Mike and Tracey believe that the album will be best experienced at a live show, where the raw energy of the music and gathering of people fuel the full experience. At their performances, the band welcomes fans to take part in the fun by singing along, wearing bright mango-colored clothing, and/or bringing along several friends to experience the fun.
On the days you are being a little too hard on yourself, take a listen to "I'm not perfect" for a friendly reminder in the form of this charming tune.
