Southern soul from the great southern land.
Making the song the focus, The Meltdown stay true to the story and keep your attention on the soaring voice of Simon Burke. He’s soul, but He’s something else indefinable; like you’ve heard him before but don’t know where. The rhythm section create a hypnotic spacious groove to lean upon and the horns gracefully tie it all together. This stellar band bring a blend of Stax and Motown with a healthy dose of the Nashville songwriting tradition. Songs to move your heart and your feet as echoes of Memphis soul resonate.
Having built their sound off the back of mesmerising and uplifting live performances, they were signed to Melbourne label Hopestreet Recordings in 2015 and released ‘Better Days’ as a 45 soon after.
Their debut self-titled record was released in 2017 to great critical acclaim, followed by a run of sold out shows and festival appearances. The Meltdown continue the tradition of world class soul bands to emerge from Melbourne, Australia and they’ll wrap you in their warm embrace. With a new album on the way along and some national and international touring, the soul from the south will be carried far and wide.
Great vibe, great sound, but it’s the song that’s king here.
About Loretta & Her Boyfriends
When Loretta Miller isn’t going full Rock n’ Roll diva with her band JAZZ PARTY or singing rich harmonies with her Family band The Dusty Millers, she likes to slow the music down a little and go for some subtlety and sweetness. Loretta and Her Boyfriends play their own brand of swinging Blues and spooky Ballads, taking songs and influence from the greats like Dinah Washington, Patsy Cline and Julie London - women with soul and attitude. Backed by a band of accomplished and handsome musical boyfriends, Loretta commands the stage as one of the most powerful and dynamic vocalists in Australia.
