Scarlett Affection, sisters Melia and Nerida, are on a musical roll after releasing their new album Forever is a long long time in a gorgeous and entertaining sold-out concert at the Byron Community Centre on 1 September. Since then, they’ve just won the 2012 John Lennon Songwriting Competition, Country Category, for their leading single 5:49, a real coup considering this is a very established international songwriting competition and they were the only Aussie act to win a category. They are about to support Clare Bowditch when she tours the region on October 12 at the A&I Hall, and you can catch them this Sunday at Sphinx Rock Cafe.
Melia and Nerida are also creators of the Scarlett School, the leading contemporary music school in the shire, and are the mentors in the Mullum Music Festival’s Youth Mentorship Program.
Renowned for their honesty, humour, harmonies and folky country original songs, Scarlett Affection has a new album full of beautiful, moving songs, produced by Dave Symes (musical director for Missy Higgins and Sarah Blasko) .You can even pick yourself up a copy at the gig on the weekend if you’re quick at the Sphinx Rock Cafe on Sunday.
