“I Go Off” – Diana Anaid

Timber and Steel Video Premiere: “Queen of Boomtown” by Gretta Ziller

Gretta Ziller

We’re really excited to be the first to share the brand new video from alt-country singer-songwriter Gretta Ziller, “Queen of Boomtown”.

The powerful song is the title track from Ziller’s upcoming debut album, due for release on the 1st September through independent record label Social Family Records.

The video was filmed in Dural, just outside of Sydney, and was produced and directed by Joyce Ong and Michael Tan of New Heights Media.

“When Joyce and I started talking about the video, it was an easy transition, with both of us having a similar idea about the sort of outdoor location we wanted to shoot, the grand piano…the crown…the whole lot,” explains Gretta Ziller “On the day of filming, everything ran together seamlessly and I think that comes across in the clip, which I’m incredibly proud of.”

Check out the video for “Queen of Boomtown” below:

Queen of Boomtown is available for pre-order now. Gretta Ziller will be launching the album from the end of August – the full list of dates are here:

Thursday 31st August – Croxton Front Bar, Melbourne, VIC
Thursday 7th September – “Whiskey Jam”, Rooty Hill RSL, Sydney, NSW
Friday 8th September – Sunset Studio, Newcastle, NSW
Saturday 9th September – Sider Diner Sessions, City Sider CBD Motel, Tamworth, NSW
