With an equal love for country and pop genres, Australian artist and songwriter Melanie Dyer wraps conversational stories in undeniably pop hooks, attracting a fan-base that borders the two worlds.
With startling vibrancy, Melanie burst onto the country-pop scene in 2015 with her EP ‘Lifetime’, which was noted as a stunning artistic blueprint and a tearaway chart success. The title track and video spent several weeks in the Country Music Channel (CMC) Top 50 with singles ‘Busy Doing Nothing’ and ‘My Stupid Mouth’ cracking the Australian Country Music Airplay Chart Top 10. Above all, the EP signalled the arrival of a phenomenal new voice and songwriter in Australian music – both in the world of country and on the vibrant local pop landscape.
More recently Melanie enjoyed breakout success with her single ‘Memphis T-Shirt’. Released in Nov 2019, the song was added to playlists on HIT & Nova Networks and over 100 Regional stations around Australia, enjoying 6 weeks at #1 on The Music Network’s Country Hot 50 Chart and #1 on CMC. The song went on to receive an APRA nomination for ‘The Most Performed Country Work’ in 2021. In late 2020 Melanie released the single ‘20s’, co-written with producers Zachary Kale, Reid Isbell and Konstantin Kersting who have collectively worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including, Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Tones and I and Mallrat.
We can’t wait to see Melanie shine on the Groundwater CMF stage 12-14 November 2021!
