Melody Lee Hayden Releases New Single ‘Fly Away With Me’ 12th August
Fly Away With Me
“For me 2021 was a year full of Hi’s and Low’s…Writing songs shooting videos and recording for my Changed part 1 and part 2 Album.
I was working in the studio recording with my producer David John Lynch and Piano man Zac De lacey when I received the news from the doctor’s office that I had a growth as big as a football in my cervix and it had to be that removed ASAP the following week. I was terrified what if … Is it human nature to always fear the worst and yet tell others not to worry…? I had started this musical Journey and would I never get to finish it.
All can I remember was staring out the window and feeling so lost. Stuck in the moments in my life I could have, should have made better choices, taken more chances, left when I knew it wasn’t right and spoken up when I knew what someone was doing was wrong… I wanted to Fly out that window be free from all the chains that bind me… But all I did was sit and stare out the window … I wrote Fly away with me on that day when I looked around, I saw how many others I knew that were stuck and not willing to change too… It was 3 weeks later before I got the good news the growth was benign. But in that one moment my life changed forever, I had choices to make, things to say through my music, I wanted to make sure that I let people know they are not alone in life’s trying moments… I share my heart with you …I feel, I Break, I live every day, every moment, I know now what’s important to me. Do you? So, I ask you will you take my hand and change what isn’t right in your life and set your heart free, just reach out and fly away with me?
Love Melody Lee”
Melody Lee Hayden Bio:
Melody Lee Hayden is a singer-songwriter from Queensland, Australia. Born in Newcastle, NSW Australia, she studied piano, guitar and musical theory and modern, classical and tap dancing, before starting her career as a singer, dancer and model in Sydney. Songwriting from the age of ten, Melody Lee loved to perform in musicals and school plays:
Melody Lee’s love for performing took her around world as a singer, dancer and compere.Writing and performing gave her the passion to express her love of life in her music; writing songs about the moments, journeys and people we meet that define us, who we fall in love with and who drive us crazy, yet inspire us to be better people by touching our hearts and guiding us. “Music is my passion, love, joy and at times my sorrow. I just want to take someone back to a moment that they were feeling. Their first kiss, love at first sight, the moment they made the choice to try again or to let go. To help My friends get though the toughest moments in their lives… I want them to know I understand, and I care, and that you are not alone. That to me is everything.”
Melody Lee has a positive and determined attitude despite huge adversity in her life. She was hit by a drunken driver and the accident ended her dancing and modelling career just over two decades ago. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash but was revived by paramedics, suffering from brain trauma, loss of her memory, and losing part or her leg, spending a year in hospital and learning to speak and walk again. Suffering from long term memory loss, she didn’t even remember she played piano until two years ago. “It is a little hard to explain, but I was living someone else’s life, lost in the everyday survival rather than living the life I wanted to. I still sang but didn’t really write much, mainly singing covers.”
When Melody Lee started to regain her memory for the different styles of music she was capable of singing and playing, it changed everything. “I’m determined to try and create as much as I can just in case I lose the ability to keep writing again.” Melody Lee has written around fifty songs since then, alongside producer David John Lynch. “I will continue to write and sing as long as there are people wanting to listen. I love to meet new people and share my music.” With such a fantastic vocal ability and timeless songs encompassing pop, rock and soul amongst other genres, Melody Lee Hayden has a great deal to offer the musical landscape. Changed Part 1 was released April 8th 2022.
