With her percussive finger tapping, guitar playing wizardry (not to mention the power of her voice), 23 year old Tullara has an endearing stage presence full of raw, powerful honesty, and swagger.
23 year old Australian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Tullara has quickly developed a reputation as one of the country’s brightest up and coming performers. Renowned for her guitar playing, described as “beautifully complex and intricate while within an instant raw and powerful”, Tullara has an endearing stage presence full of honesty and swagger.
Having spent the last 4 years touring Australia and recording as half of popular folk/roots duo ‘Siskin River’, Tullara has racked up performances at many of the country’s largest and most respected music festivals including: Woodford Folk Festival, The National Folk Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Mullumbimby Music Festival and Caloundra Music Festival. Tullara recently returned from her first solo international tour performing at festivals in Ireland, Slovenia, Sweden and Germany.
Though still young, Tullara has encountered great success and great tragedy, and these experiences have transformed into the songs that make up her debut EP. Released November 2016, 'Better Hold On', explores honest and universal emotions through the intricacy of her guitar and the power of her voice. The lead single and music video 'Too Many' earned her Triple J Unearthed Spotlight Artist of the week, won the attention and praise of John Butler, landed her a supporting spot on internationally acclaimed artist Wallis Bird's Australian tour, and sees her featured in many of Australia's leading festivals. 'Better Hold On' was recorded in Melbourne by premier female producer and international touring artist Aurora Jane. It is an exciting taste of what's to come from this young artist.
“Tullara has a way with words and a way with that guitar. She's a gifted artist just at the beginning of what looks to be a promising adventure ahead.” - John Butler
