Project Description

Melinda Schneider


For several years now Melinda has been a leading light of the ‘new breed’ of Australian Country artists. In a career which began with a stage debut at the age of three, (appearing with her mother, internationally renowned yodeller Mary Schneider) she has kept her family tradition alive by becoming one of Australia’s most sublime singers and popular live performers, but it is through her assured and accomplished song writing that she has really discovered her true voice.

Four albums and 8 years on, she has won numerous awards, five CMAA Golden Guitars – including 2007 Top Selling Album for ‘Stronger’, 2005 Album Of The Year for ‘Family Tree’ and APRA Song Of The Year for the song ‘Real People’. Melinda’s songs have been recorded by such diverse artists as John Farnham, Jimmy Little, Olivia Newton John, Paul Kelly, Elizabeth Cook.
She makes regular trips to Nashville where she enjoys a growing reputation as a popular and prolific song writer. Melinda’s fifth studio album ‘Be Yourself’ will be released July 5th on her own label BE MUSIC, distributed by DESTRA. “As a songwriter and singer Melinda Schneider is one of this countries truly important artists.” Glenn A. Baker “Schneider has a pure, clean country voice… it’s only a matter of time before Nashville comes callling.” The Bulletin (Australia)
