Melody won a stack of songwriting awards and was a finalist in the Telstra Road To Discovery and Toyota Starmaker competitions. Taking off on a pilgrimage to the US, Melody honed her craft singing in Nashville at the famous Bluebird Cafe, The Continental Club in Austin, Texas and Hank's favourite hangout, Tootsies, following on with a second trip to perform at "The Americana Festival" in Nashville.
Melody's debut record "The Wreckage" is long awaited. Sometimes a little bit Indie pop, sometimes a whole lot country, Melody writes without pretense and "The Wreckage" sets out to prove that alternative country music isn't always dark and twisted tales of heartbreak and revenge, and letting your toes break free of your tightly laced boots and tap is okay too.
Produced by Kevin Walsh, the Album of the Week feature is heard live on GMC every morning. You can hear the interviews in full here.
