Songwoman Melody Pool and songman Marlon Williams have announced a monster co-headlining tour which is due to kick off next month. With songs reminiscent of Joni Mitchell and Jackson Browne, Melody released her debut album, The Hurting Scene, last year. Thanks to a successful crowdfunding effort, the young Kurri Kurri songbird found herself recording the album in Nashville. The Australian gave the album a four-and-a-half star review. Marlon Williams received his first taste of stardom when he took out a singing competition at the age of 11. He is one-half of duo Davidson and Williams. Their latest is Sad But True Volume III. Beav’s Bar, Geelong – July 17; Major Tom’s, Kyneton – July 20; Ararat Hotel, Ararat – August 14; and The Bridge, Castlemaine – August 17.
