Tullara has been making her mark across the Australian music industry since her debut release 'Better Hold On' in 2016. Winning "BEST EP" at the 2017 'Australian Roots Music Awards', Tullara has since racked up performances at some of Australia’s largest and most respected music festivals including: Woodford Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Mullum Music Festival, and Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival, just to name a few. In 2017 alone, Tullara played 140 shows across the country including support slots for International Artists 'Wallis Bird' and 'The East Pointers', as well as Aussie Folk legends 'The Waifs' and 'Mia Dyson'.
With her percussive finger tapping, guitar playing wizardry, not to mention the alluring power of her voice, Tullara has an undeniable, uniquely endearing stage presence of full of raw, powerful honesty, and swagger. Along with her all female, dynamic trio, this northern NSW homegrown artist is taking the genre of Folk/Roots to a whole new level.
“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
'Better Hold On' is a searing continuation of what Tullara first put in motion with debut single, 'Too Many’. Both a plea for forgiveness, and a stark warning, 'Better Hold On' is a deep and urgent track, and although Tullara's celebrated guitar and earthy vocals are again at the forefront, it also showcases her band at their dark and complex best.
Tullara sings about the mazes of life – the ones we build ourselves, and the ones that trap us unaware. “I didn't want to let you down, I didn't want to steal your fire,” she sings, her voice full of remorse, and we can't help but follow her deeper into the labyrinth.
'Better Hold On' is Tullara’s lead single from her debut EP recorded at Sunshine Recorder Studios, Port Melbourne, with premier female producer and international touring artist Aurora Jane.
