Emily Wurramara’s childhood was one of water and music. Growing up on Groote Eylandt, days were filled with travel, fishing and extended family, a mother telling stories of dreams and dolphins that would one day become the seeds of Emily’s music. In almost the blink of an eye the young fresh-faced artist who debuted her breakout EP ‘Black Smoke’ in 2016, has matured into a now seasoned award-winning Indigenous performer and a proud new mum with her own stories to pass down to her daughter, K’iigari, born Boxing Day (2017).
2018 saw Emily’s long-awaited mid-year release of her first full-length debut album, Milyakburra. A dedication to both her daughter and her home. Emily has teamed up again with award-winning producer, David Bridie to complete the album.
After delivering one of the most acclaimed Australian debut albums of recent times The Hurting Scene, Melody Pool returned in 2016 with her stunning sophomore album Deep Dark Savage Heart.
Deep Dark Savage Heart painted a dark insight into a personal place in Melody’s mind; guiding the listener to confronting depths “I feel like I’ve really stood my ground with this record. I don’t ever want to make an album filled with pop hits. It’s always going to be me playing guitar and singing the truth”.
Following the release tour for Deep Dark Savage Heart, Melody went on to share a more literal account of her experiences when she featured on Australian Story in 2017.
At this time, Melody announced she was to take a break from music to focus on rehabilitating her mental health.
Now in 2018, Melody Pool has announced her awaited return with new music penning its way into her sets, exploring a new and re-birthed brilliance hinting at subjects of empowerment, resurgence and uprising.
