Melinda Schneider channels Doris Day with album and concert tour

Doris Day.

What a star. A singer, actor and dancer – an official “triple threat”.

How to describe the songs she’s best known for? You could call it cabaret or musical theatre but really, they’re pop tunes from the 50′s. If you’re a fan of the hit TV series ‘Mad Men’, you’ll be happy to hear that Doris Day tunes are included in the soundtrack.

And then there’s the gorgeous Melinda Schneider. She’s the winner of six CMAA Golden Guitars, whose songs have been recorded by John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John, Paul Kelly, Billy Thorpe and Jimmy Little, and whose five country albums and their original songs have garnered Awards, Gold Records and acclamation both in Australia and the U.S.

2010 has been a new and exciting chapter for Melinda. While dancing up a storm on channel 7′s Dancing With The Stars, she was also in the studio with Producer and Musical Director extraordinaire, Chong Lim, recording a new album.

‘Melinda Does Doris’ is a Tribute to Doris Day.

This new creative direction for her sixth studio album has proven to be a long-standing hit as it debuted at #1 on the ARIA jazz/blues chart on August 6 still remaining at the top spot nine weeks later, and climbing to #21 on the overall ARIA pop chart.

After appearing on Dancing With The Stars earlier this year and undertaking all the promo that goes goes with an album release, there’s little sign that Melinda will be slowing down this year as she’s just begun a national ‘Melinda Does Doris’ tour.
