“For those yet to discover Great Aunt, they’re an Americana/roots duo from Melbourne, a collaboration between songwriter/instrumentalists Megan Bird and Chelsea Allen, drawing attitude and inspiration from their diverse musical backgrounds in punk, blues, jazz and roots music. Sierra Hull meets Tom Waits in Louisiana, you could say. I’d jump on the bandwagon now; these ladies are going to be HUGE!” - Laura Coates, Country Update Magazine (Issue 90)

LA MUSIC CRITIC - INDIE VOICE BLOG (USA)

“ […] folk-based Americana music tinged with shades of bluegrass and gospel. For an Australian band, they have a great handle on the Americana sound and could quite easily compete with American bands in this genre. […] We would love to see them tour the States, and believe they would be quite successful.” Indie Voice Blog (2018)

“With the release of an ambitious debut EP, Great Aunt have begun to define for themselves a unique path in folk and Americana music. […] ‘A Mess That I Left’ [is] a simple and evocative debut that combines elements of contemporary folk and Americana with the traditions of old time, bluegrass and gospel music.” - Bellbottom Magazine #77, September 2018
