Mel Parsons – Christchurch

September 26 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm NZST

Needing little introduction on these shores, award-winning singer songwriter Mel Parsons is hitting the road with her new album ‘Glass Heart’ for an intimate solo tour of some her favourite New Zealand venues.

Parsons has been a well-loved fixture on the national touring circuit for the past ten years, with a beguiling voice and a disarming line of humour that has won her a very dedicated fan base.

Parsons’ new album was recorded in Los Angeles with legendary American producer Mitchell Froom (Crowded House, Suzanne Vega, Elvis Costello, Missy Higgins, Randy Newman, Lindsay Buckingham/Christine McVie) and while showcasing new material on her spring tour, she will also revisit material from her three previous records.

‘Glass Heart’ was a finalist for the 2019 Taite Music Prize, and a top 20 finalist for the coveted APRA Silver Scroll Award.The record follows 2015’s award-winning ‘Drylands’, which spent 51 weeks in the (IMNZ Album) charts.

Parsons is also a cast member of Kiwi musical supergroup ‘Fly My Pretties‘, with sell out tours and festival performances throughout Australasia.
