Melody Pool is a young artist with an old soul.
Her debut album, The Hurting Scene, sends the listener time-travelling to coffee houses in the late ’60s, with songs reminiscent of early Joni Mitchell and Jackson Browne.
After releasing her debut album independently, Melody went on to sign with Mushroom Music Publishing & Liberation Music who re-released The Hurting Scene in July 2013. She toured with Californian duo The Milk Carton Kids, who then invited Melody to tour Europe.
Tales of lost love, infidelity and asserting independence,
The Hurting Scene contains a dozen original songs that are beguiling and bittersweet. “I’m in love,” Melody sings, “and you’re to blame.”
These are songs that will break your heart. And soothe your soul.
Melody Pool won the Telstra Road To Discovery (Songwriter Category) in 2013, an initiative proudly supported by the Mushroom Group
