Now based in New Zealand, Cy Winstanley and Vanessa McGowan were formerly part of acclaimed London based group Her Make Believe Band. The duo present Cy’s songs in their rawest form, with just acoustic guitar, double bass and voices described as “love letters between Amy Mann and a slip-sliding Paul Simon”. 

Tattletale Saints recorded at Butcher Shoppe Studios, owned by Grammy award winning engineer David Ferguson and acclaimed singer-songwriter John Prine, and the birthplace of many Johnny Cash hit recordings. 

Cy and Vanessa enlisted the help of top bluegrass/folk songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Tim O'Brien to produce the album. O’Brien won a Grammy in 2005 for his album ‘Fiddler’s Green’. 

The album was released on March 29th throughout NZ.
