Melody Forghani - scenestr of the day

Published in SOD  
What do you do? I am the founder and director of Twnty Three PR and management. I work with an incredible team of six other women across Sydney and Los Angeles representing and supporting artists across reach their audiences.

Why do you do it? I've loved music, its history, and the pop-culture that surrounds it from a really early age, and have always wanted to play a hand at helping artists reach their vision and audiences to find great new music.

What do you love about the city you live in? I live in Sydney and right now it's a hard place to love, but it's just so damn beautiful.

Where did you go for your last holiday? I was super privileged to be able to travel to South Africa right before the world shutdown – the first time in well over a decade that I got to travel with my family and be in a new place with them. It was divine.

What's your favourite item of clothing? I have gotten quite into hats recently – right now I love my dark green broad-rimmed Ganni hat with its bright purple tassel.

What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid? I'm pretty sure I was OBSESSED with 'The Big Arvo' and specifically their segment Ben's Big Cook Up With Jen – I used to write into them and submit myself for their little competitions all the time.

If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go? Maybe the day before Pompeii went under, just to see what it was all about.

If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook us? I pretty much only know two recipes: one is spaghetti bolognese and the other is a Persian meal called Zereshk Polo. It's saffron lemon-y flavoured chicken with sour barberries over rice, which is a crowd pleaser.

What's the best lesson you've ever learned? Clear, honest communication is your best friend.

Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows... I genuinely love 'Home & Away' and I try and avoid any commitments during the 7 o'clock hour of the weekday.

Are you happy with your work/ life balance? Feel like I'm forever working on this, but the COVID lockdowns surprisingly really helped with that.

How do you define success? Knowing that you've contributed to the world by helping someone in some way however big or small.
