REVIEW BY ALAN EDWARDS
"He’s A Writer Of Songs” touched a chord within me (pun intended!) the very first time I heard it. Melissa Robertson has personalised a country character that we have all met at some stage in our lives, and told his whole story in a song that lasts just a few minutes. He is the essence of so many worthy country folk that live wonderfully complex and productive lives, far from the razzamatazz of the city, but who contribute so much to our Australian identity. Her song is a classic piece of the musical storyteller’s art, and a great illustration of how she has matured in her craft."
Alan Edwards (Musical Australiana) 103.9 Seymour FM.
