Our performers


Mel ErtlerMel Ertler
Mel Ertler is a 21 year old Sydney-based artist drawing from Soul, Pop and Funk to concoct some tasty tunes. Mel’s music is laden with lighthearted groove forming a contrast with her earnest lyricism. Mel’s music is brewed in collaboration with her brother at their home studio. Together, they create a sound packed with lighthearted groove which contrasts with her vulnerable, earnest lyrics. This trademark was embedded in her debut single “Hold on to My Mind” as well as her sophomore single “Saturn Blues”. This cosmic-themed tune has a sombre, elegant feel to it laced with energetic, funky moments. Her latest single “Disco Dream” turns the funk notch up blasting you with feel-good energy and rays of retro flavour.
