The Adventures Of ALBUM
In this fast-food world of manufactured music, Sydney songbird Melanie Horsnell is truly one of a kind.
Melanie is not your typical pop idol, popstar, overnight success. She is one of those rare artists in 2005 that has paid her dues building her musical craft over time, fine tuning using life’s experiences in front of live audiences (always the best critics), writing songs of real life and loves, building a loyal fan base on a one to one basis, in intimate venues throughout Australia, Europe and Great Britain. Her journey started when she was five and picked up her first guitar and started busking on Manly Corso to passing tourists. The last year has been spent hopping between Australia and Europe where Rounder Records picked up her debut album The Adventures Of … and released it in the Netherlands, Germany, France and Great Britain and needed Melanie on the spot to promote it.
Hey what’s a girl got to do but hop on a plane and go, not once or twice but three times, due to popular demand, to play the European circuit, visit radio stations and media and perform strings of shows. In between all of this, Melanie managed two National tours, one as support for Irish super group The Frames. She also performs regularly in venues such as The Basement, Metro, The Excelsior etc.
Now her stunning debut album, The Adventures Of…, recorded at Garth Porter Studios, is set for national release in Australia through Inflatable Girlfriend Records/MGM on September 5th. It’s exactly the same as the European release including two of the songs in both English and French versions. (Melanie did a crash course on French in 2004 just for this album). The album was selected as album of the month by Radio France and the reviews have been impressive. The Adventures of... is bound to capture the hearts of many a music connoisseur here, as it has in Europe.
