Pushing the boundaries of country music, Melbourne’s Gretta Ziller, has joined independent record label, Social Family Records, also home to such award-winning artists as Amber Lawrence and Troy Kemp, to release her stunning debut album, Queen of Boomtown.
“I'm absolutely thrilled to be joining Social Family Records! I'm really looking forward to working with the team to release my debut album. I've watched and admired their work from afar for years now and I'm so excited to be joining their family!” – Gretta Ziller
With diverse roots spanning jazz, blues, rock, pop, classical, folk and bluegrass, Ziller’s sound resembles that of classic Americana. Since making her entrance at the 2011 CMAA College of Country Music graduation concert playing – wait for it – the bagpipes (!), Ziller has gone on to become a Toyota Star Maker and Telstra Road to Discovery Grand Finalist, and been nominated as CMC New Oz Artist of the Year, amongst other accolades, including the 2013 Tamworth Songwriters Association/APRA New Songwriter of the Year.
“In a world where there’s so many artists out there, you’re always looking for those that really capture you – Gretta Ziller is one of them. What a voice!! What a songwriter!! What a supreme talent!! Artist’s like Gretta bring their passion with them and it’s infectious. I’m extremely proud and privileged to have her join the ‘family’ here at SFR.” – Nardia Drayton (Social Family Records Label Manager & Head of PR & Publicity)
