Deputy Country Music Controller (Acting)
Hello, I’m Samantha Melrose.
I work with Alex Krupa most Wednesday evenings.
Music has always been my passion ever since I can remember. I began playing the piano at the age of 10, and studied Music at University, which led me into music journalism and teaching piano. I get involved wherever I can within the music industry and like to keep myself busy.
I love going to gigs and without a shadow of a doubt C2C is one of my favourite events of the year. Listening to Johnny Cash and Garth Brooks as a child is where it all began and since then my passion for Country music has grown.
Having the opportunity to become involved with this show gives me the chance to share the music I love, and hopefully give some exposure to both old and new artists within the industry.
