Queensland born pop-country artist, Melissa Lukin may be a world traveller, but she’s found her home in country music. Her first release for 2021 ‘Caught up in a Dream’ is a song that carries you away with its melodic tone and slick pop/country production.
“I am so excited to be releasing my new song ‘Caught up in a Dream’. It’s a Country/Chill style song close to my heart and is about carving out your own road and doing the things that feel right for you and not necessarily what society says. The dream of what life is ‘supposed’ to be is not always what it’s ‘meant’ to be. I had some amazing Nashville based musicians play on this track and the wonderful Luke Batterbury produced it”.Melissa Lukin
Queensland based singer-songwriter Melissa Lukin has released On The Water, an ambient pop-folk crossover that draws on the inspired reflections of enigmatic love to create an emotionally stirring and majestic track. Wonderfully produced by Luke Batterbury (Pete Murray, Taxiride), On The Water is the perfect introduction to the sonic splendour of Melissa’s style: inspirational and warm, hypnotic and inviting with a tidal motion of yearning and positivity at its core. On The Water follows the success of her debut EP First Breath, which was produced by Stuart Stuart (Sheppard, The Veronicas) and contained the track Drowning which featured in a hit US television show and received wide exposure on Australian radio.
Featuring a spirited vocal performance from Melissa, On The Water is an impassioned exploration that cuts to the heart of self-discovery via the conduit of memory, a rich and exuberant track whose themes and allusions many will connect with.
