Alt country/Americana singer–songwriter, Gretta Ziller, has released the fifth single from her highly acclaimed debut album, Queen of Boomtown, as she embarks on tour as special guest to legendary Glenn Shorrock.
A cool, bluesy, country track, Go On is about losing someone to their dreams, beautifully expressed in a song that’s become a fan favourite at Gretta’s shows. “It’s about being sad for that loss yet happy for them for pursuing what they want to do, but letting them know you’re not going to sit around waiting for them to come back for you either!” she says.
Since the release of Queen of Boomtown, Gretta has come to the attention of numerous tastemakers in the music industry who have tapped her with nominations for a variety of awards, including the Australian Music Prize, Alt Country Album of the Year, CMC New Artist of the Year, and an Honourable Mention in the International Songwriting Competition.
The record saw an impressive array of musicians join Gretta in the studio, including members of Saskwatch, The Cat Empire, and bands of Angus and Julia Stone, Passenger and Dan Sultan, with Henry Wagons appearing as a guest on the dark Round and Round. Her sound may bear the hallmarks of classic Americana music, but its essence is far more diverse. It defies categorisation and demands repeated listens.
