Indie-folk singer songwriter Mel Parsons is well recognized as one of New Zealand’s songwriting stars. Parsons’s soaring voice, poignant writing, and dynamic live show have earned her fans everywhere she’s taken to the stage from New Zealand, to North America, to Europe. Her second album ‘Red Grey Blue’ was called “one of New Zealand’s finest releases”*, and spent 28 weeks in the NZ independent album charts. Over her thousands of kilometres of touring Mel has learned to craft songs that find their way home to every member of an audience no matter where they’ve been.
