Tiny Ruins

About the Artist

Tiny Ruins is the project of New Zealand musician & songwriter Hollie Fullbrook.

It sprang from writing music for theatre productions in Wellington, dabbling in four-track recording and playing at live music and poetry nights. Samuel Prutton committed the first Tiny Ruins songs to record, in the form of rough demos, which, by way of the internet, were able to reach many more ears.

After working with respected Auckland producer Djeisan Suskov on a yet-to-be-released EP, Tiny Ruins went a-roaming in May of 2010, embarking on a small but noble tour of Northern Spain with Barcelona-based musician ‘a Singer of Songs’. A collaborative EP - ‘Little Notes’ - was born, featuring three songs from each of the pair. Recorded in an old apartment in Barcelona, it was released on December the 6th, 2010, by HI54LOFI Records (Canada) and Underused Records (UK).


2010 drew to a close with the first Tiny Ruins album,
Some Were Meant For Seabeing recorded in the wildernesses of South Gippsland, Australia by J Walker (CW Stoneking, Holly Throsby, Machine Translations). It is set to be released by influential Aussie label Spunk Records in May, 2011.


Most recently, Tiny Ruins has found herself playing shows in Australia supporting acts such as Beach House, Joanna Newsom, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Holly Throsby & The Hello Tigers, The Middle East, Sonny & The Sunsets, Olof Arnalds and Grand Salvo.
