Ella & Sienna are sisters, aged 17 and 14, from the Adelaide Hills who have released their debut single, ‘Save Your Breath’. The song was written by the pair following devastating bush fires across parts of Australia in January 2020, which affected their local community and nearby wildlife. Says Ella, ‘We felt it was really important to deliver the message of physically taking action to achieve change, rather than just reacting with empty words.’
Although this is their first official release, Ella & Sienna have already won the 2019 Ekka Country Music Showdown, were runners up at Battle of the Young Stars and Best of the Buskers at the 2020 Tamworth Country Music Festival and top 3 grand finalists at the 2019 Gympie Music Muster Talent Search. ‘Save Your Breath’ is heartfelt and strong, and announces them as artists to watch.
Singer-songwriter Hannah Lee is from Bellangry on the north coast of New South Wales and has just released her debut single ‘Just Look Back’, co-written with Lyn Bowtell and produced by Michael Moko (Catherine Britt, Melody Moko). The song is about realising that a past relationship wasn’t as uplifting as you thought it was – and the way to realise that is to ‘just look back’ – and Lee’s rich voice carries us through the emotions of that experience.
‘I think this song is just as therapeutic to sing as it was to write,’ says Lee. ‘I wanted my debut single to be as honest as possible, I didn’t want to hold back and I hope to continue that as I release more music.’
