Watch The Inspiring Australian Story – ‘Unchained Melody’

Raw. Vulnerable. Confronting. And brutally honest. You might have heard some of Melody Pool’s songs. Now, in an extraordinary edition of the ABC’s Australian Story, you’ll learn the remarkable personal story behind Melody’s music.

“I’ve never worked with anybody that puts that much blood on the page.” – Shane Nicholson

The 25-year-old singer-songwriter from Kurri Kurri in NSW has released two critically acclaimed albums, 2013’s The Hurting Scene and 2016’s Deep Dark Savage Heart. She has toured with the Eagles, Rodriguez and The Milk Carton Kids. And she’s getting set to go on the road with Don Henley.

But Unchained Melody shows there’s much more to Melody’s story than just music. You can watch the full episode here.
