A devoted songwriter before her teens, Freya has now established herself in the Australian independent music community as a seasoned performer, having extensively toured WA and the East coast as well as being a regular at some top Australian festivals such as Fairbridge Festival (WA), National Folk Festival (ACT), Folk Rhythm & Life (VIC), Cygnet (TAS), Yunguburra (QLD) and Nannup Music Festival (WA).

Having played over 500 shows, including a tour to Ireland in 2007, as well as having been nominated twice for WAM song of the Year and the ASA Songwriter of the Year, Freya has supported and performed alongside such artists as The Indigo Girls, Deborah Conway, Lior, Sarah Storer, Kate Miller-Heidke, The Witlams, Bomba, Dallas Frasca, Clare Bowditch, Blue King Brown, Brandi Carlile and Vika and Linda Bull. Over the years she has toured and performed as a solo artist, with her own string quartet and more recently with her full band, That Brutal Moon, which has included guest appearances from such notable Australian musicians as Ben Franz (The Waifs), Mal Web, Loren, John Bedggood (Bernard Fanning) and Mel Robinson (Missy Higgins, Tim Rodgers) most of whom feature or her forthcoming album.

This year sees Freya Hanly releasing her second studio album Quiver which has been carefully crafted over the last few years to deliver her finest work to date. The album truly is a reflection of the dedicated passion that has been put into it and is an outstanding showcase of both the uplifting full-band vibe of That Brutal Moon in songs like Evaporate and Cow For Sale, as well as Freya’s gifted style of composition in the more abient, awe-inspiring pieces such as Don’t Follow Me.

Other releases consist of the Bar Fly EP (2006), her debut album Feel This (2003) both of which have had regular rotation on Triple J’s Roots & All show, ABC regional radio and several other stations around the country, and a recently released live album recorded with the band at Mojo’s Bar in North Fremantle. Which captures the live feel of the band and provides a glimpse of some of her more recent songs in the lead up to the new album.
