Tiny Ruins is the project of Bristol-born, New Zealand-raised musician and songwriter Hollie Fullbrook.
Tiny Ruins’ live shows began to attract attention for soul-stirring, intimate performances and strange, hypnotic songs. Asked to support Alasdair Roberts in Sydney, May 2010, Tiny Ruins was then signed to Australia’s Spunk Records.
A collaborative EP, Little Notes, was recorded in the apartment of Barcelona-based musician Lieven Scheerlinck (‘a Singer of Songs’). 'Little Notes' was released independently in December 2010.
The first Tiny Ruins album, 'Some Were Meant For Sea' was recorded by J Walker (CW Stoneking, Holly Throsby) with piano, cello, violin, accordion, bells and percussion to the live guitar and vocal takes. The album saw a UK release in December of 2011, after being championed by BBC 6 and BBC 2. It was hailed by BBC World Service programme The Strand as one of the top five albums of 2011.
Tiny Ruins has opened for bands such as Beach House, Joanna Newsom, Fleet Foxes, Holly Throsby and Olof Arnalds.
Calling upon the talents of double bassist Cass Mitchell, Tiny Ruins will be touring as a duo from May 2012 in support of The Handsome Family’s UK tour. The pair will base themselves in Europe until September 2012 and are set to play several festival dates over the summer.
