Classics a road map for De Rome

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT’S ON -

WHILE most Gold Coast kids grow up lis­ten­ing to So Fresh, com­mer­cial R’n’B and Top 40 tracks, Bree De Rome (pic­tured) had an iPod playlist full of ‘‘the greats’’. The lo­cal songstress, who has ap­peared on Aus­tralia’s Got Tal­ent in 2011, will re­lease her de­but EP Bag Of Bones on the Gold Coast this week­end and says she at­tributes her unique writ­ing style to her young in­fat­u­a­tion with Johnny Cash, The Ronettes and Bil­lie Hol­i­day. Bag Of Bones sees De Rome col­lab­o­rate on song­writ­ing with Sally Selt­mann, Adrian Deutsch and Bryan Estepa. De Rome says the five-track EP cov­ers ev­ery­thing from surf-rock to sweet ’60s girl pop to old school rock ’n’ roll and coun­try.

Bree De Rome, Belltalk and The Al­tais play The Loft, on Chevron Is­land, on Satur­day night. Tick­ets are $10.
