“Ngiyampaa man Pirritu’s (Brett Lee) music is gentle, intricate and highly melodic – strange but beautifully framed chords overlaid with gently weaving vocals that sing to you a story of both sadness and hope.” – Ali MC, SBS NITV
Ngiyampaa man and First Nations singer-songwriter Pirritu’s music is gentle, honest and melodic, enticing you into the depths of his personal journey, to sing you 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 to connect back to family, culture and language – a journey he began when he was 14 years old. Two things drive his continual thirst to connect to his people, country, language and culture – his one year old daughter and his passion for music.
Pirritu who sits on the Board of Songlines, Victoria’s peak Aboriginal music body, is currently working with music mentor and international touring singer-songwriter Glenn Skuthorpe and Manager/Producer Katie Symes on international touring project, the HOMELANDS Tour, connecting established and young First Nations artists on their Homelands, across oceans and out onto stages at festivals around the world.
Pirritu’s debut album is due for release in late 2019.
