Classical composer and pianist Melany Thompson has recently released her debut album “Memories of Home”, while each of the instrumental piano pieces offer a cathartic array of serenity, the best introduction to her distinctive approach to songwriting is “Lucy’s Lullaby”.
There’s a perceptible delicacy within Melany Thompson’s soundscapes, one which is not often found in neo-classical arrangements, but the sense of poised lightness runs right through the open and expressive piece.
Melany Thompson may have played at the Sydney Opera House at the age of 11, but I’m fairly certain that the best for this remarkably talented artist is yet to come. With the cinematic air to her sound, it would be no great surprise to hear her evocative melodies within film scores.
You can check out Melany Thompson’s single Lucy’s Lullaby along with the rest of her debut album via Spotify.
