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).
Some Were Meant For Sea debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Albums on 6 June 2011. It has been in the Top 40 Albums for two weeks with a highest position of #35. There is one album by Tiny Ruins in the Top 40 Albums.
