Open Mic Session with Alx Green feat special guest Stefan Melbourne
Open Mic as usual hosted by Alx Green featuring special guest artist Stefan Melbourne.
When you hear an artist that reminds you of your fondest memory, your dreams, the best film you’ve seen all year, your favourite record of all time and your first love that has to be a good day. Manchester based singer songwriter Stefan Melbourne possesses that very gift.
Filed neatly next to popular troubadours Ben Howard, Ray Lamontagne and Bon Iver, Melbourne binds fragile, heartfelt lyrics to simple yet robust musicality and delivers them with “An incredible voice which sounds like a huskier take on Tim Buckley’s.”
After a busy 2013, supporting the likes of Ryan Keen, Kathryn Williams, Rae Morris, Nathaniel Rateliff, George Ezra, John Smith and Luke Sital Singh. 2014 sees Melbourne return with his new EP ‘The Way We Fall’. Recorded over 5 cold December days in Manchester’s Sacred Trinity Church with producer Sam Jones. (Alex Turner, Soweto Kinch, Corinne Bailey Rae) It also features Dave Walsh on Drums (Tom McRae), John Parker on Double Bass (Nizlopi/Paper Aeroplanes) and vocals from Welsh Songbird Chloe Leavers. ‘The Way We Fall’ is a stunning sonic document from a singer-songwriter with great things ahead.
