Want free master-classes from big-hearted heroes?
Brisbane based singer/songwriter who gives really nice cuddles.
Bree Bullock can best be described as a big heart with a guitar.
Growing up in a sleepy little beachside town in Northern NSW, Bree first laid hands on a guitar when she was 14 years old, and immediately started performing and writing songs in her bedroom, and in the music commons at school. “It all came spilling out really.. I always felt like I had so much to say, and when I started playing an instrument, all of a sudden I had the tool I needed to get it all out.”
With enough songs under her belt, and enough guts to try and make something out of it, Bree independently released her debut EP, ‘Sunshine Ammunition’ in 2010, which was well received in her small but loyal, and growing fan base in the Brisbane music scene, where the songstress relocated after her studies.
Three years later, Bree independently released her first full length album, ‘All My Shipwrecks’ with a tour of intimate house concerts spanning the entire length of the East Coast of Australia, from Cairns down to Mebourne; “I felt it was important to launch the album in a special, stripped back kind of way… I wanted to keep the songs (and myself) as honest as possible and really make a connection with people, and keep that connection.” Bree sang her way into the lounge rooms and hearts of hundreds of new friends and fans over the two week tour. The album also shot to number 6 on the Itunes Singer Songwriter chart during the Live from the Lounge Room Tour. This was celebrated in style, with cask wine, in a campervan somewhere on a highway between Airlie Beach and Hervey Bay.
Bree’s track ‘Landline Lover’ from the new album was also recognised and made it into the semi-finals of the International Song writing Competition, ’Unsigned Only’ which receives thousands of entries from all over the world- a huge achievement for a small town, independent folk artist.
Focusing on a single release later this year, Bree is keen to grow her little fan base and keep the intimate performances coming. Keep an eye out for her gig guide on her new website (to be finished soon), and don’t miss the next show near you. From her bare feet on stage, to her winning smile and lame jokes, watching Bree perform live is like catching up with a long lost friend over a cuppa.
