Tiny Ruins is the project of Auckland musician & songwriter Hollie Fullbrook. Born in Bristol, England in 1985, Fullbrook learnt the cello from an early age & at 10, moved with her family to New Zealand. Teaching herself the guitar through her teens, she traveled alone in the US for a while before moving to Wellington in 2005, where she studied & wrote music for small-fry theatre productions.

Tiny Ruins was named as such when, while reading a passage in a book that mentioned ruins, a favourite song of Fullbrook's, She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain as performed by Tiny Bradshaw, played on her stereo. Sharing rough tape-recorded demos of her songs with music-minded friends, they garnered attention from beyond New Zealand's shores; in 2010, she was asked to fly to Sydney to support Scottish folksinger Alasdair Roberts, and was then duly signed by influential indie label Spunk Records.

Tiny Ruins' first album, Some Were Meant For Sea, was recorded in South Gippsland, Australia by J Walker (CW Stoneking, Holly Throsby, Machine Translations). Released in mid-2011, said the New Zealand Herald, "From time to time an album comes along that stops you in your tracks and demands you to listen. Tiny Ruins' Some Were Meant For Sea is one such record". Australian press were also smitten with Mess & Noise noting, "the songs sway and heave with warmth and approachability". The album saw a UK release after being championed byBBC 6 and BBC 2. It was hailed by BBC World Service programme The Strand as one of the top five albums of 2011.
