Some Were Meant For Sea
Tiny Ruins is the musical namesake of Hollie Fullbrook. After being raised in Bristol and then attending University in Wellington, NZ, Some Were Meant For Sea is Hollie's debut release. Both vocally and instrumentally, Some Were Meant For Sea exists in dappled warmness: Fullbrook's striking vocal timbre conjuring a natural imagery born from earth and sea. Recorded in a diminutive hall, once the local school of South Gippsland (Victoria), Fullbrook worked with producer J Walker (Holly Throsby, Machine Translations) and between the pair, some cello, violin, piano and accordion were added to the otherwise bare-boned songs, which were all recorded entirely live. So striking are Fullbrook's own live performances, that she was asked to be a special guest to Joanna Newsom, Beach House, Ólöf Arnalds and The Middle East across Australia and New Zealand.
