Hypercoaster Music is delighted to present the awesome talents of two of Australia's best singer / songwriters, in a set of intimate gigs as part of their European tour.
Melanie has been described by the Sydney Morning Herald as having a voice of the utmost delicateness, as a songwriting gem by The Australian. Based in Candelo in southern NSW, Melanie has recorded ten albums and EPs including her latest, 'Song to Sing on a Saturday Night'. Melanie's critically acclaimed album The Cloud Appreciation Society was long-listed for the 2013 Australian Music Prize, Quatre Chemins for the 2015 Australian Music Prize, and she was nominated for an APRA award in 2011.
She has toured with Glen Hansard and The Frames, Jason Mraz, Bernard Fanning, Lou Rhodes, Slaid Cleaves and Sarah Blasko among others, as well as touring extensively on her own in Australia and Europe. Melanie recorded an album in French, which was funded by the highly successful Pozible campaign and gave Melanie a six month residency in France, writing songs with poet Alain Rivet and pop icon Helena Noguerra. Melanie has also written songs with Wendy Matthews and Catherine Britt, and for film and television.
"Horsnell is a songwriting gem, shining light on everyday life with gentle accuracy." Stephen Fitzpatrick, The Australian
Hailing from the Blue Mountains NSW, King Curly is the invention of local singer/songwriter Steve Appel a long time enigma of original Australian music. Over 15 years this chiefly acoustic ensemble has been capturing the hearts of music lovers and some of biggest names in the business while remaining virtually unknown to commercial airwaves.
King Curly has toured by invitation with acts as diverse as k.d Lang, Paul Kelly and The Cat Empire throughout Australia, Europe and the US.
After a long absence from the stage, building alternative-design mud houses, Steve Appel has re-emerged to showcase a new King Curly EP, Calling For Fire: songs imbued with apocalyptic foreboding, inspired by the inflammable nature of the Australian bush and the wider world at large. Appel is a true creative. His songs and his buildings are beautiful and relevant to the times.
