Melinda Schneider

Wed 26 October 2016

Country singer-songwriter Melinda Schneider is the daughter of a policeman father and a mother who was the queen of Australian yodeling. She was onstage at 3, recorded her first song at 8 and starred on A Country Practice at 13, but the real story of her world away from the spotlight is complex, and makes for fascinating listening.

Melinda shares all with Barry Divola, while playing Olivia Newton-John, Wham, REO Speedwagon and more.
