First impressions aren’t always right. If you’ve been foolish enough to nail down the sound of acclaimed songwriter Gretta Ziller, then prepare to have the rug pulled out from under you. Queen of Boomtown, her stunning debut record, defies categorisation and demands repeated listens.
Ziller’s sound may bear the hallmarks of classic Americana music but its essence is far more diverse. The Melbourne songstress’ roots span jazz, blues, rock, pop and classical, that eclectic musical upbringing is reflected in the varied tracks of this full-length album.
Since its release in September Queen of Boomtown has garnered recognition with industry and fans alike. Ziller is a 2018 Golden Guitar Finalist for Alt-Country Album of the Year, Queen of Boomtown is long-listed for the Australian Music Prize, and it received rave reviews from press, including Rhythms Magazine, Country Update and a 4 star review from Rolling Stone Magazine.
We look forward to Ziller bringing her killer tunes to Dashville Skyline 2019.
