Inhabiting blessed unrest.
Delivering divine aliveness to your ears
SINGULAR EP RELEASE
Available on all streaming services from Friday 25th November
Breckin releases lush and layered chamber-folk EP Singular as a follow up her warmly received debut album Shiner- described by Aine Keogh of Forte Magazine as:
"...the sort of album I can imagine accompanying Alice as she explores her sweetly surreal wonderland."
With Singular, Breckin embarks on a journey through a whimsical and wild landscape, laying offerings at the feet of beloved childhood storybooks, angelic babes and the inevitability of Spring. Stretching playful tendrils into sparkling and surprising possibilities on her acoustic Guild M20 (the famous 'Nick Drake' guitar) Breckin reflects the unique voicings and lilting time and tempo shifts of albums such as Pink Moon and Brighter Later.
Where Breckin asserts her singular artistry is in her at turns unearthly and powerful vocal harmonies and sweet, vulnerable musings.
Singular, like a chap-book of perfect poems, both satisfies and leaves you wanting more.
Breckin is the moniker of Melbourne based award winning visual artist, poet and singer songwriter, Heather Marsh. Her debut album Shiner garnered international attention, with single 'The Story Bridge' selected as a KEXP Song of the Day and Forte Magazine describing it as "...smooth and flows like a sweet, spring dream".
Originally raised in a sun-drenched suburban Petri- dish of strip malls and wall-to-wall carpet, Breckin made her escape to an enclave of decadents and artists. Forever ruined for reality, Breckin now inhabits what Martha Graham describes as the 'blessed unrest', walking between the pedestrian and the divine, telling tales from the depths and the margins. Compared in turn to Neko Case and Joanna Newsom, her songs interlace enveloping warm acoustic tones with sparkling finger-style guitar and lush strings.

Breckin's debut single The Story Bridge from the album, Shiner, received high praise from Stephanie Garr (KEXP) and was selected as a KEXP Song of the Day, describing Breckin's style as "..vivid and devastating, while her voice remains eerily calm - hushed, almost angelic - over the sad trembling of her guitar"
