Heavy Machinery Records is very proud to present Part 1 the debut full length album from brilliant Melbourne singer/songwriter Pirritu.
Pirritu (Brett Lee) is a proud Wangaaypuwan Mayi of the Ngiyampaa clan, a creative thinker, educator, storyteller and musician. His music is gentle, honest and melodic, enticing listeners into the depths of his personal journey, singing a story of sadness, love and hope.
Pirritu (meaning ‘Brett’ in Ngiyampaa language) was adopted by a non-Aboriginal couple as a newborn baby and raised to be proud of his Aboriginality, to follow his cultural journey and connect back to family, culture and language — a journey he began when he was 14 years old. Two things drive Pirritu’s continual thirst to connect to his people, country, language and culture: his two-year-old daughter and his passion for music. Pirritu’s debut single was released in 2019.
Pirritu – Part 1 is sun-filled collection of gorgeous and strikingly honest acoustic folk songs, led by Brett Lee’s arrestingly beautiful voice and his extraordinarily tasteful backing band of Douglas MacDowell and Luis Poblete plus some very special guest appearances.
Pirritu – Part 1 is out now on digital and in a limited deluxe vinyl edition featuring cover art by Brett Lee.
