Amiria Grenell Performs Hollow Tree at The 13th Floor: Singles Session

Direct from Christchurch here is Amiria Grenell along with Ryan Fisherman to perform this special semi-acoustic version of Hollow Tree.

The song is taken from Amiria’s latest album, The Winter Light.

Amiria GrenellThis 10-track album is an introspective body of work which combines tender vocals, vivid storytelling, and a
seamless blend of folk, country, and rock elements. Amiria says that THE WINTER LIGHT details “my days, my
heart, my family and my surroundings – and sometimes I manage to make sense of it all. But when I release
songs into the world, I don’t want people to see me – my hope is that they see themselves.”

Produced alongside Ryan Fisherman, Amiria says this collaboration contributed to the album’s fluidity. “I love
dipping in and out of genres, and working with Ryan helped me gather the best of what I have to give. For that, I
am so grateful.” Made with the support of NZ On Air and featuring stunning strings produced by Anna
Edgington, THE WINTER LIGHT was almost entirely recorded at The Hut, Ōtautahi.
Alongside the album’s previously released singles ‘Romeo’ (NZOA New Tracks, RNZ, NZ Musician) and
‘Lanterns’(RNZ, R1, RadioActive, JuiceTV), THE WINTER LIGHT introduces opening track ‘Oamaru by Night’,
which includes an original voice memo recorded post-show outside the Grainstore Gallery, and closes with
‘Burnt Coffee’ – complete with bird sounds recorded at Purau, Banks Peninsula, a place Amiria holds dear to
her heart.
