Melodyssey

Since their inception in 2000, Melodyssey like many of their counterparts have seen the music industry change dramatically. Their 2002 self-titled ep release saw the band release independently on the mgm label to minor local success. Though it was their debut long-player “Distance & Regret” (2003) (Modern Music/ SonyBmg) that saw the band reach a national audience via tours with Cog, The Butterfly Effect and their own headlining shows, plus a stint on the jjj network with their single “Aquqplane”.

Since their inception in 2000, Melodyssey like many of their counterparts have seen the music industry change dramatically. Their 2002 self-titled ep release saw the band release independently on the mgm label to minor local success. Though it was their debut long-player “Distance & Regret” (2003) (Modern Music/ SonyBmg) that saw the band reach a national audience via tours with Cog, The Butterfly Effect and their own headlining shows, plus a stint on the jjj network with their single “Aquqplane”.

….So it was after “The Two Windows” sessions that Melodyssey was optimistic about taking their music to the next level with a modest record deal. What they found was a market so cautious and scared into submission by illegal downloads and a downturn in market profits that the offers didn’t come at all. The band finally made the decision to go it alone once again, just to get the record out.

Private financiers, family, friends and a major banking firm later, the band are finally ready to let “The Two Windows” free. Mgm are once again locked in to distribute the record nationally and it looks as though things are on the up again as the band prepares its campaign for the rest of the year. To coincide with the release of the record on July 12, the band are putting together plans for a series of small runs both locally and interstate, as well as the launching of their first single to national radio in June. « hide
