It was a serendipitous meeting which set them on their way to sharing a European tour billed as 'Two Australian Songwriters'. Over the course of a 6 week itinerary, playing shows almost every night through 7 countries, songs were written, harmonies honed and the reception was such that the decision was made to make a record together! The project was started during their last days in Paris, recording demos of new songs in the Studios Quatre Chemins. Later, back at base camp in Australia, Steve steadily worked those demos adding melodic parts by musicians located between his native Hazelbrook and Melanie’s Candelo.
Theirs is a musical relationship that has a certain timelessness and collaborative charm - one imagines Melanie and Steve as bards traversing Europe among the gypsies, gracing old time vaudeville halls of midwestern America, or perchance, evoking a modern Slim and Joy arrangement involving billy tea, towed caravans and bench-seated Holdens. Steve’s steady, world-weary yet carefully sanguine delivery provides complex contrast to Melanie’s ever-dewy yet steadily feminine tones. In this creative conspiracy, Horsnell’s familiar day-dreamy themes of perfect love and searching hope meet Steve’s wisened swaggery squarely in the middle.
