MelVO was born, as all great ideas tend to be, over coffee in the laneways of Melbourne. Part ‘damn-the-man’ and part ‘shameless self promotion’, MelVO’s main aim is to provide a place for great independent Melbourne voices to be heard.

The idea came from one of the talents on our site Zoe Knowles. After working as a creative writer in Brisbane, she saw the benefits of having a place for local independent voices to band together and show off their work and talents in a single place (PS: check out www.BrisVo.com for awesome Brisbane voices!).

Back in Melbourne, and working with great independents every day as a radio creative – she realized Melbourne could benefit from a place for independents to call home too! Cue… 5 strong lattés, a snack and a couple of hours hogging space at a table and MelVo was born!

If you are an independent Melbourne voice, or know one who isn’t on here… let us know!
