What’s better than live country music? Nothing! We’ve got a fantastic show as Country Music Wednesday presents MELANIE DYER.
In the summer of 2019/20 MELANIE DYER enjoyed breakout success with her pop-embellished country bop ‘Memphis T-Shirt’.The song was released in November and was swiftly added to playlists on HIT & NOVA Networks and over 100 REGIONAL STATIONS around Australia. Additionally, to all the country music stations and networks nationally. The track also relished support across NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL APPLE MUSIC and SPOTIFY playlists and in February 2020, Melanie SOLD OUT her first-ever Sydney headline show at the OXFORD ART FACTORY. Melanie burst onto the scene with startling vibrancy. Her debut EP laid a solid foundation and produced country chart-topping singles ‘Lifetime‘, ‘Busy Doing Nothing‘ and ‘All You Need to Know About Me‘.
In 2017 Melanie released her debut album ‘Fresh‘ with the title track an established #1 HIT that occupied the TOP SPOT on the OFFICIAL AUSTRALIAN COUNTRY AIRPLAY CHART for five consecutive weeks while the accompanying video went #1on Australia’s Country Music Channel (CMC). Follow up single ‘Save My Cents‘ a song Melanie penned alone, also shot to the top of both RADIO and CMC CHARTS and was announced a TOP 10 FINALIST in the International Songwriting Competition in 2018. Dyer has played CMC ROCKS FESTIVAL – Australia’s largest International Country Music Festival three times and in 2019 she rocked the MAIN STAGE for the first time. In February 2020 Melanie was invited back for her second ’writers round’ performance at NASHVILLE’S ICONIC ‘BLUEBIRD CAFÉ‘ and has opened shows for many Aussie artists including Brad Cox and The McClymonts.
Now Melanie has revealed her brand new single 20s.
Produced and mixed by Konstantin Kersting (Mallrat, Tones & I), 20s was largely written in Nashville during a solo trip Melanie booked with no pressure to write for a specific purpose, but purely just to explore the city.“Be reckless on the edge, get hooked on a high you can only get from loving living life on empty coz that’s how we do our 20s” is sure to be an anthem for those in their second decade.
MELANIE DYER says,
“I’m in the thick of the best years of my life where I’m exploring new things, meeting new people and figuring out where I want my life to go. This chapter of my life inspired the next single, simply titled ‘20s’. This song captures the fearless freedom and possibility that lights you up in your 20s.”“There can be so much pressure that comes with being in your 20s. Asking yourself ‘What should I be doing, why haven’t I achieved this yet?’ and comparing yourself to others is a normal part of navigating this chapter.I want this song to be a reminder that it’s ok to not have it all worked out and planned. It’s ok to not have a six figure job and instead drink cheap wine because you’ve spent your rent money on concert tickets. I feel like I will soon hit my 30s and thank myself for enjoying these moments, because life is way too short to be boring and responsible all the time.”
