MELODY POOL – THE HURTING SCENE

The last year has been a roller coaster ride for Hunter Valley country singer Melody Pool. After winning numerous competitions, Pool was offered the chance to record her debut album in Nashville with legendary producer Brad Jones – the man behind everyone from Dolly Parton to Missy Higgins’ latest album.

The result, The Hurting Scene, is a mature and surprising album demonstrating that Pool is wise beyond her years. The standard country fodder is here: old highways, little blues bars, heartbreak and sadness, however there’s something refreshing in the sound. Whether it’s just Pool and her guitar or with the backing of her band this is perfect Sunday afternoon listening.
