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 a self-managed music career that has independently achieved over an incredible 1,500,000 streams on Spotify. As her performance reputation has grown, Tullara has been invited to open for legendary artists such as Ocean Alley, Xavier Rudd, The Waifs, Jeff Lang, Troy Cassar-Daley, Mia Dyson, Kim Churchill, and Ash Grunwald. Tullara was chosen as the National Australia Tour support act for international artists Donavon Frankenreiter (USA) and Wallis Bird (IRE), as well as opening for The East Pointers (CAN). Wallis Bird was particularly impressed with the young talent, being quoted saying; "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! What an asshole!”. Tullara has racked up performances at the biggest and most respected folk festivals both in Australia and abroad including: Woodford Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Artswells Festival (CAN), LeCheile Festival (IRE), Umefolk (SE), Floating Castle Festival (SI), plus many, many more. When the pandemic hit in 2020, Tullara had to devastatingly cancel her inaugural tour of the USA, instead, she successfully crowd-funded the release of her follow-up EP 'Waiting for the Encore'. Produced by Vancouver’s (CAN) premier female producer and international artist Aurora Jane, 'Waiting for the Encore' showcases Tullara's ability to write catchy hooks and clever lyrics, exposing a new pop-inspired dimension to this uniquely powerful and alluring artist. In 2021, Tullara made the move to Cairns, far north QLD, to pursue new creative opportunities as NSW was still battling severe lockdowns and tour cancellations. Tullara toured QLD with Woodford's 'Festival of Small Halls' alongside Andrea Kirwin, playing 20 shows across the state. Tullara has since recorded her highly anticipated upcoming album to be released in November 2023, followed by a national tour. Recorded by Mark Myers of "The Middle East" this release will see a new side to Tullara's music. 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 has a way with words and a way with that guitar!” - ARIA Award Winner John Butler “I love Tullara – she’s magic” - Nkechi - Roots N All, triple j “It’s safe to say that 16 Seconds was the most cathartically connectable perennial Pop ear-worm we’ve heard THIS YEAR so far. If she’s not already on it, get her on your radar. She’s undoubtedly one to watch.” - Amelia - ANR Factory LONDON "Tullara is a bona-fide new talent destined to find great success across the North American folk-roots music scene. Keep your eyes and ears open – you will not be disappointed!" - Martin Noakes - Great Dark Wonder CANADA
