Valley’s Small Town Girl
Melissa Bajric was raised in a
small village near the vineyard regions of the Hunter Valley in
Her first album ‘Believe In Me’ released in August 2001 was a
dream come true. It first earned three awards Best New Talent,
Junior Career and Paul McLeod Encouragement Award in the 2001
Australian Independent Country Artists Awards in Sydney later that
year and picked up the 2002 Australian Independent Country
Artist's ‘Spirit of Tamworth’ project - Luke Newland Best New
Country Talent Award the next year.
In August 2003 Melissa teamed with Bob Easter and Graham Rodger to
release the popular duet album ‘Drovin’ All Over’. This album like
‘Believe In Me’ received instant radio airplay right across
Two years later she recorded at LBS studios in Tamworth. Produced
by Lindsay Butler and released on the Drover Label Melissa’s
second album ‘Small Town Girl’ with five of her own songs was
launched during January’s 2006 Tamworth Festival.
‘Some of those I wrote very recently’ she said at the time.
‘Luckiest Girl’ was written after I had started recording. I had
put down a few songs already and was taking a break and touring on
the festival circuit.’ Melissa said.
‘You’d get home from one festival turn around twice and jump back
in the car to get to the next festival’ she said. ‘I wrote
Luckiest Girl between my house and the first service station.’
‘We live in a little town with a local pub, a corner shop and a
service station. That’s it. There was a time when you could walk
down the street and you would know everybody. That’s starting to
change. There are a lot of new houses going up, new people moving
in, new attitudes, more distance. I felt a bit like a stranger in
my own town. I wanted to write a song to capture that small town
attitude before it disappears so I wrote Small Town Girl.’
Now with two solo albums in hand and a major contribution in the
duets album Melissa has cast her name as a stable part of the
Australian Country Music industry.
Melissa puts her heart and soul into everything she does and her
love of music and performing is hard to hide. She appears
throughout the year at the monthly Hunter Valley concert shows at
Hexham Bowling Club. More information in Wed Nov 1 news at
Pretty twenty-one year old MELISSA BAJRIC has been making her way
in the Bush Ballad genre since her early teens. Unlike some young
performers she isn’t confused musically she knows exactly what
direction her music is taking her. I’m always going to stay true
to the Bush Ballad style," she said adamantly. ‘But it’s also nice
to explore the other sides of county music. I do try to stay as
traditional as possible, but there’s more to traditional country
music than just Bush Ballads.’
