Bio

Western Australian Indigenous Songwriter, Mechelle Wilson, is taking her audiences by storm. Throwing them into emotional whirlpools of tears and laughter with her lyrics in songs such as Kangaroo Curry, Djuripin, Bunji Man, Smile, I’m Black-So What and One way Street to name a few.

As her career takes off as the Front Liner of Indigenous Australian Band
“Old Flames" the general feel is that this woman is comfortable in, what she has to say and do on the stage, truly demanding attention, and definitely getting it 100%.

Her Songs inspire both Indigenous and Non Indigenous people to walk as one and to have more of an understanding of the struggles of her people. Mechelle has also made plenty of room in her songs for listeners to have a good laugh as she feels comedy is a cure in itself.

Mechelle explains “the band loves to see audiences dancing and enjoying the music”. I describe my music as having an “Old School” Rock Swing sound inspired by Great Rock and Roll Artists of the sixties.
