Bio

Brea Robertson is an independent singer/songwriter from the Hinterland of the Sunshine Coast, currently based in Berlin. Brea's style fuses heartfelt soul with folk rhythms and bluesy tones. Her voice is the centre-piece of her songs, reaching from rich depths, to angelic heights, stirring the hearts of her listeners. Coupled with sweet guitar, poetic lyrics and chant-like melodies, Brea draws inspiration from landscapes and people which she regularly encounters anew as her nomadic lifestyle allows.

Brea Robertson released her debut EP 'From the Dust' in 2015. She has been featured on radio stations across the country, supported legendary Donavon Frankenreiter on his 2015 Australian tour and most recently was invited to play at Asia's largest cultural college festival in Mumbai, Mood Indigo in 2019.

She has played at festivals including the Maleny Music Festival (AUS), Desert Harmony Festival (AUS), Kattegat Festival (NL), Edinburgh Fringe Festival (SCOT) and The Village Festival within Falls Festival (AUS). For the past two years Brea has been based in Berlin, busking and touring Europe playing living room concerts.

In 2018 she recorded her latest EP 'Hillcrest to Here' which tells the stories of love, being far from home and exploring new parts of the world. 'Hillcrest to Here' was released in Berlin. The venue was so full that people stood outside to listen through the windows. Since then Brea has been regularly touring across Germany, Switzerland, Italy and the UK.

Delicate and delightful, I'm really interested to see what more Brae has in store. I love her voice and I feel like this is just the start of something magical to come.
