About Melissa & The Dr

Take two keen country music aficionados from two different countries, generations and stylistic leanings, season with lead and harmony vocals reminiscent of Emmylou and Gram, Dolly and Porter, Tammy and George, add a dash of chemistry and you have the duo that is Melissa Partidge and Dr Twang (Hyram Twang). Both have years of performing experience under their hats, that is if they wore hats.
Together they play a collection of stripped down classic country duets as well as alt-country tunes - some sweet, some bittersweet, some downright tragic - all delivered in style.
Melissa & The Dr have performed together on a number of stage shows, festivals, garages and back streets and are looking to take their sound to the honky tonks and country bars of the greater Mosgiel area. And the world...

Bill Morris - Singer, songwriter, filmmaker and author writes...
“Melissa & The Dr played the Whare Flat Folk Festival 2017/18, performing a number of American classics including tunes by Roy Orbison, Hank Williams and others.
Their short set quickly transfixed the audience - with Partridge’s near-flawless vocal delivery elevated by The Dr’s sensitive-yet-tough guitar, tasteful mandolin accompaniment and vocals.
Partridge is without a doubt one of the finest singers of country music in New Zealand. Her emotive, understated, delivery is reminiscent of a young Emmylou Harris, with the added dimension of a warm Kiwi earthiness. The good Doctor has this music in his pedigree - a southwest prairie wind blows through every strummed chord or keening harmony and he knows just when to pull back and let Partridge’s vocal soar.
As a duo, Melissa & The Dr bleed authenticity - this is Americana unfiltered, straight from the source. Hank would shed a tear.”
