Hailing from Neath Port Talbot, Wales, Leondre Devries originally met Charlie Lenehan online in 2013, after seeing one of his videos. Eventually meeting in person, they soon decided to form a duo under the name, Bars and Melody.

Not long afterwards, the duo released their debut single, Hopeful. To promote the project, they appeared on several TV shows such as Good Morning Britain, and This Morning. From there, they dropped their debut album, 143 in the summer of 2015. Filled to the brim with new tracks, it went on to spawn the singles, Stay Strong and Keep Smiling, both of which charted in the UK. Riding on their momentum, Bars and Melody later issued the EP, Teen Spirit in 2016. A five-track project, it successfully peaked within the top 50 in the UK. What have they been up to in 2017? So far, they have released two albums this year, Covers and Generation Z, the latter of which charted in a few countries.
