About

About

Great Aunt is an alt-folk/Americana group from Melbourne, Australia, rambling a musical line between the plaintive and the joyous. Their songs are a means of catharsis – a shared experience of love, sadness, grief, and hope.

Formed in 2016, the group is led by Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Megan Bird, and draws on a range of musical influences including folk, blues and gospel. Though uniquely Australian and contemporary in its themes, Bird’s songwriting invites comparison with the work of artists such as Gillian Welch, Alison Krauss, Shakey Graves, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Jack White, amongst others. In 2016, Great Aunt travelled to Nashville, Tennessee for an extended songwriting sojourn, and a series of gigs and showcase performances at local venues, including the world-famous Bluebird Café.

Performing as a duo, Great Aunt features the talents of Bird (guitar/mandolin/lead vocals) and Chelsea Allen (double bass, backing vocals, drums).
