SPECIAL APPEARANCE ON ABC TV’S
MONDAY FEB 20 AT 8PM
Raw. Vulnerable. Confronting. And brutally honest. You might have heard some of Melody Pool’s songs. Now, in an extraordinary edition of the ABC’s Australian Story, we’ll learn the remarkable personal story behind Melody’s music.
“I’ve never worked with anybody that puts that much blood on the page.” – Shane Nicholson
The 25-year-old singer-songwriter from Kurri Kurri in NSW has released two critically acclaimed albums, 2013’s The Hurting Scene and 2016’s Deep Dark Savage Heart. She has toured with the Eagles, Rodriguez and The Milk Carton Kids. And she’s getting set to go on the road with Don Henley.
The Australian’s Iain Shedden hailed Deep Dark Savage Heart as one of the albums of the year. News Corp’s Cameron Adams called the record “stunning”, stating: “Somehow Melody Pool makes sharing her pain a pleasurable experience.” While The Sydney Morning Herald’s Bernard Zuel added, “Pool doesn’t just confirm the strong promise of her debut, she blows those expectations aside.”
But Unchained Melody shows there’s much more to Melody’s story than just music.
“She knows what she’s doing artistically and she’s there to share her story, so it’s funny sometimes when people can’t handle her truth.” – Ella Hooper
Melody Pool is an incredible Australian Story.
