 Hunter Valley’s Small Town Girl
Melissa Bajric was raised in a small village near the vineyard regions of the Hunter Valley in NSW.

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 Australia.

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 http://www.countrymusicbulletin.com.au/

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.’
