Bio

Tullara has been storming across the Australian music scene ever since her Debut EP release ‘Better Hold ON’ in 2016. Born and raised on a parrot farm in Ramornie, northern NSW (true story), Folk/Roots rocker Tullara went on to win ‘Best EP’ at the 2017 Australian Roots Music Awards – this was the first step to an indie career that achieved an incredible 1,000,000 streams on Spotify in 2018 alone. With the amazing support from her listeners and fans, Tullara played a jaw-dropping 310 shows across 2018/19.

As her performance rep grew, Tullara won the attention and praise of ARIA Award Winner John Butler “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.”, and was invited to open for Aussie legends such as The Waifs, Jeff Lang, Troy Cassar-Daley and Mia Dyson. 
Soon after Tullara was chosen as the National Australia Tour support act for international artist Donavon Frankenreiter (USA) and Wallis Bird (IRE), as well as opening for The East Pointers (CAN). Wallis Bird was particularly impressed with the young Aussie’s talent quoting; "Tullara has a true magic, I'm not joking. When she plays with all her spirit I'm drawn to tears - every time! Excellent woman, excellent guitarist, excellent voice, excellent song-writer, excellent hair!” 



Tullara has since racked up performances at some of the biggest and most respected festivals both in Australia and abroad including: Woodford Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Artswells Festival (CAN), LeCheile Festival (IRE), Umefolk (SE), Floating Castle Fesitval (SI), plus many more.
Along with her outstanding, all-female band, Tullara’s live show is a main-stage act that commands the stage with effortless swagger and connects to the audience with heart-wrenching honesty. From her guitar playing wizardry to her enticing, raw and powerful vocals, Tullara’s music exhibits a wide range of style, musical dynamism, captivating stage presence and depth of emotion.

Tullara’s highly anticipated follow-up release is set for September 2020, but fans will get an early taste of what is to come, starting this May with the first single ‘16 Seconds’. Produced by Vancouver’s (CAN) premier female producer and international artist Aurora Jane, ‘16 Seconds’ showcases Tullara’s ability to write catchy hooks and clever lyrics, exposing a new pop-inspired dimension to this uniquely powerful and alluring artist.

Tullara's tone is sounding great to my ears and the track skips kinda merrily along.
