Music icon to dazzle crowd

MULTI Golden Guitar Award winner and chart-topping singer/songwriter, Melinda Schneider, will wow the crowd when she presents ‘Love Songs’, in an intimate two-hour concert at Bryan Brown Theatre in February.

Performing her favourite hits plus the greatest love songs from some her most cherished heroes, Melinda says the show is inspired by the unconditional love she has found with her long-time partner, Mark Gable, whom she will marry next year.
Melinda said: “I’ve been living in un-wedded bliss for the past 13 years with Mark, but our little boy Sullivan, who is eight, came to me last year and said, ‘Will you please marry daddy? I just don’t want anyone else to marry you!’ How could I refuse such a beautiful proposal?”
In this emotional, moving and soulful performance, backed by talented pianist Stefan Nowak, Melinda will perform a selection of her own original love songs spanning her 40 years in entertainment together with timeless romantic cuts from the likes of Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Dolly Parton and more.
She will also preview new songs from her forthcoming 15th studio album to be released in March.
She continues to tour the country every year as a live performer, all while writing, recording and advocating for mental health, having shared her own lived experience of it in late-2020.
In recognition of her artistic achievements, Melinda has won six CMAA Golden Guitar Awards and is a two-time ARIA Award nominee and an APRA Award nominated songwriter.
To date, Melinda has released 14 studio albums, two of which are gold-certified records and she is closing in on a third with her ‘Melinda Does Doris: A Tribute to Doris Day’ album.
Catch ‘Love Songs’ on Friday, February 4, from 8pm.
