Gretta Ziller will head to Tamworth next month as she tours to launch her debut album, Queen of Boomtown.
The singer-songwriter has released the title track from the forthcoming album with pre-orders now available via Social Family Records.
The album will be released on September 1 with Ziller to perform a launch show on Saturday, September 9 at the City Sider Motel.
Tickets are $15 beforehand or $20 at the door.
A radiant tune, Queen of Boomtown paints a picture of isolation, standing tall in a metaphorically abandoned town, and although the album title may appear to be big-noting, one listen to the title track brings the self-deprecating context to the surface.
“Picking this song as the title was tough for me because at first glance it may come across as me thinking I’m the ‘top of the pile’,” Ziller said.
“But, in fact, the song is the opposite. I guess that’s what I wanted my album to sound like…people may think it’s going to be like my EP – maybe more country – but it’s not. First impressions aren’t always right.”
Ziller brought together an impressive array of musicians to perform on the album, the recordings featuring members of Saskwatch, The Cat Empire, and the bands of Angus and Julia Stone, Passenger and Dan Sultan.
Accomplished songwriter Jen Mize provides backing vocals while Henry Wagons appears as a guest on Round and Round. To purchase tickets visit http://smarturl.it/GZ-Tamworth-Show.
