Roll up! Friday 14th October, The Street Theatre Canberra! TIckets here! I'll be playing songs from Quatre Chemins, The marvellous Pete Wild is opening the evening, and with special guests performing with me - Gemma Clare on Cello, Kate Burke on Violin, and Phil Moriarty on Clarinet (oh my goodness, I'm so excited to play with such treasures!).

Track two on my new record, one of my favourite songs by dear Wally De Backer aka Gotye. I came up with this guitar version when it was released years ago and played it for the first time at a gig in Melbourne supporting Josh Pyke, just thought I could sneak it in there and try it out nervous and all, and then after I played someone kindly told me Wally was at the back of the room, agh! https://melaniehorsnell.bandcamp.com/track/hearts-a-mess
Guess what! I've got a new album!.. yep even though I'm still working on the last one, sometimes I get too excited. This is a selection of songs written by my some of my favourite songwriters (there is a high Aussie element!) like Dan Kelly, Darren Hanlon, Glen Hansard, Gotye, Coloured Stone and more... It's called "Songs to sing on a Saturday night", because that's a bit what it's like at my house.
You can pre-order the record here! www.melaniehorsnell.bandcamp.com
