Tattletale Saints announce NZ Summer Tour

Winners of the New Zealand Music Award for Folk Album of the Year 2014,Tattletale Saints are led by guitarist/vocalist Cy Winstanley and double bassist/vocalist Vanessa McGowan.

Fresh off the back of their Tui win in January 2014, Tattletale Saints relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to embark on a 50-date tour of the United States. This time spent in the vibrant Nashville music scene inspired a change in the band’s sound, and they welcome the addition of celebrated NZ drummer Tom Broome for this, their 5th New Zealand tour.

Performances on the tour will include songs performed as a duo, re-imagined versions of songs with drums, and brand new material off the band’s forthcoming full band album, due for release in 2015.

Described as a “intelligent, entertaining and thoroughly captivating” (Sing Out! Magazine, 2014) debut album How Red Is the Blood was recorded in January 2013 in Nashville, TN alongside Grammy winning producer and multi instrumentalist Tim O’Brien.
