Event description

"There is a kind of humour in wisdom, seen clearly in I Learned How To Love From Love Songs (written with Catherine Britt) which immediately recreates a downtown coffee bar of skivvies, cigarettes and desert boots in its gentle picking and light singing of opening lines of “I learned how to live from Dylan/And that’s why I’m so shy/I learned how to love from love songs/But love songs only made me cry.” Bernard Zuel

Melanie Horsnell is a gifted songwriter and a beautifully evocative singer. Her song "Sometimes" was featured in the Canadian TV program Flashpoint, being used in the Season 3 premiere episode titled "Unconditional Love". She has the distinction of being the only Australian to be featured in Flashpoint during its entire series run, the majority of artists featured on the program being from Canada or the USA.

Coming from a musical family, she started busking from the age of 7 and writing and performing her own songs at 15. 

Melanie spent a year or more touring England, Ireland and France, 6 months of that time spent traveling the countryside from Marseille to Bourgogne to Paris writing songs with the well known French poet Alain Rivet and French pop icon Helena Noguerra.

A Triple J unearthed star, she has had songs placed into US TV series Degrassi and has released 6 albums under her own name. She lives in the artistic and musical community of Candelo NSW. 

Joining Melanie will be the brilliant Bill Risby on piano, Jonathan Zwartz on double bass and Hamish Stuart on drums, a dream trio!
