A dusty folk tale based on Hazelton’s childhood as the Cook’s Daughter on the iconic and isolated Melita Station. Exploring a backyard of gibber stone and twisted mulga, lil’ Midge is annoying as she is small. Surviving eagle strike, mischievous willies and dastardly drought, she ‘gets her mosey on’ in her quest to be useful to all along the way.

Raised on the Goldfields, a proud student of Kalgoorlie School of the Air, fostered through Freo folk and finely-tuned by Kimberley country, Hazelton proudly hails from the one-horse town of Boulder, Western Australia. Making up ‘hums’ as the barefoot kid of a station cook, then moving on to a six stringer in their trusty caravan, she never dreamt her little tunes would get her on track to see the world. Since then she has notched up 16 commissions, 11 awards, 4 Stars in the Scotsman and a couple of Isa Browns in a chook raffle. She has played her way to the international stage through an invite to Edinburgh Festival. Prolific and productive, she is also passionate about songmaking whenever and wherever she can. Recent career highlights include winning WAM Country Song of the Year with altcountry legend Bill Chambers for ‘Melita Station’
