Gretta Ziller - Deniliquin Club
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 it’s release in September Queen of Boomtown has garnered recognition with industry & fans alike. She is a 2018 Golden Guitar Finalist for Alt Country Album of the Year, Queen of Boomtown is long-listed for the Australian Music Prize, as well as receiving rave reviews from press, including Rhythms Magazine, Country Update and a 4 star review from Rolling Stone Magazine. ‘Slaughterhouse Blues’ the first single from her album was also given an Honourable mention in the Unsigned only Songwriting Competition in early 2017 it is also currently a finalist in the same category of the International Songwriting Competition.
