Melanie Gray

MELANIE GRAY

With a heart filled with adventure, a soul inspired by the Australian landscape and a voice that soars, Melanie Gray puts a modern spin on Australiana music.

Inspired by a life of adventures around Australia, Melanie Gray writes songs that entice you back to the country. There’s a refreshing authenticity to her songwriting. It’s unashamedly celebratory, it’s genuinely optimistic and her songs have a knack for creeping into your heart and filling it with sincere joy. 

As a performer Melanie Gray is distinctly Territorian. Laid back, humble, engaging and likeable. That warmth comes from an honest love of performing and storytelling. And a warmth that comes from growing up in the Northern Territory.

Melanie Gray’s style is reminiscent of down-to-earth and lyrical country music singers but she owns the modern Australiana country music style with her own heart-felt, catchy and sometimes comical interpretation of stories.

Australian Army Band Darwin

AUSTRALIAN ARMY BAND DARWIN

Set up to entertain troops in the barracks or on deployment, the band also plays an important role in supporting community events and school music education programs.

Darwin’s group is one of 11 army bands stationed around Australia. It has three full time staff and the remaining 14 members are Army Reserve soldiers. Its dedicated musicians come from a wide variety of backgrounds and vocations and their service sees them perform at more than 70 events every year, from bugle calls to rock shows.

In 2003, the band was awarded the Freedom of the City of Darwin in recognition of its contribution to the Darwin community.
