The Boys from Melbourne Street kept us entertained with a selection of their own compositions from their three albums. They introduced us to an eclectic mix of superb songs encompassing folk, jazz and blues – some were up beat such as Wealthy Man and a new song Your Story alongside quieter tempo songs such as Carpe Diem. An excellent support for Brookes Williams


“The Boys from Melbourne Street”, it was impossible to categorise their music other than to say it was a mixture of Acoustic Folk, Rock, Jazz and originality. Their lead singer, who was not only a very accomplished guitarist, but had a voice not unlike Peter Gabriel, If you get a chance to see them, do, you won’t be disappointed     


Carpe Diem contains all the elements that made Songs From The heart so popular, string melodies, finely blended harmonies and skilful musicianship, all topped with bright and open production, as spring unfold and our thoughts turn once again to barbecue’s, bare legs and beer gardens, we should consider the music to accompany sunshine filled days and long summer nights, You can’t do better than this 

Spring 2006 sees the release of the second album by The Boys From Melbourne Street “Carpe Diem” is Latin for Seize the day” and taking your opportunities. Well Colin and the Boys have certainly done this, and on the back of great reviews for their debut album “Songs From The Heart” and their live shows they took themselves back into the studio to record a second instalment for the many fans of their summery acoustic rock.” At Last” has a jazzy feel and is one of a number of songs on the album that would carry the brighter works of Nina Simone


They’re a jovial bunch whose friendship shines through. This is the third or fourth time I’ve met “The Boys” and every time it’s been fun. Not exactly the youngest boy band I’ve had in the studio 


They aren’t Jazz, folk, country, pop, rock or blues, but they could be, whatever label you wish to attach the The Boys from Melbourne Street, Original is one and Unique is another.
