Tour News - Mel Parsons Announces Solo Spring Tour in 2019

Needing little introduction on these shores, award-winning singer songwriter Mel Parsons is hitting the road with her new album 'Glass Heart' for an intimate solo tour of some her favourite New Zealand venues.


Parsons has been a well-loved fixture on the national touring circuit for the past ten years, with a beguiling voice and a disarming line of humour that has won her a very dedicated fan base. 

Parsons’ new album was recorded in Los Angeles with legendary American producer Mitchell Froom (Crowded House, Suzanne Vega, Elvis Costello, Missy Higgins, Randy Newman, Lindsay Buckingham/Christine McVie). While showcasing new material from ‘Glass Heart’ on her spring tour, Parsons will also be re-visiting material from three previous records. 

'Glass Heart' was a finalist for the 2019 Taite Music Prize, and a top 20 finalist for the coveted APRA Silver Scroll Award. The record follows 2015’s award-winning ‘Drylands’, which spent 51 weeks in the (IMNZ Album) charts. 

Parsons is also a cast member of Kiwi musical supergroup ‘Fly My Pretties ‘, with sell out tours and festival performances throughout Australasia.
