It’s been a couple months since I last wrote a post, and figured it was time to update you all. The last time we spoke, we’d just arrived in Queensland, and since the last piece of news, we’ve been touring, recording, and amongst other developments and changes, and our 2nd album release date is soon to be announced.
The Winters’ Fall single launch tour is now complete – we played a run of shows in QLD, NSW, and SA – various gigs, little markets, and some brewery/winery shows. We went through some beautiful towns – Peregian Beach, Byron Bay, Brisbane, Sydney, Wollongong, Newcastle, Adelaide, and of course back in VIC, for the Sedona Wine Estate’s Easter Sunday, and Melbourne for the Harvest Festival at the Ceres environmental park.
The shows went well, it was great to take the Tailor Birds sound to other Australian towns outside of VIC, see how people responded. We were lucky enough to have a wonderful local musician Felicity Burdett, join us for the QLD shows. We then did solo and duo shows in NSW, and our newest Tailor Birds member, Sean Crowley on guitar, joined us for SA. The tour went well, it looks like we’ll be doing some more Australia wide touring later this year.
We weren’t able to make it to the other side of Australia (WA, and far north Queensland, central Australia, and down in Tassie), though we hope to head that way later this year, or in early 2017 if possible, alongside returning to QLD, NSW, and SA of course.
In the past few weeks, we’ve had a few band changes for the Australian shows.
We sadly said goodbye to Anthony Winnick (vocals/guitar) who has gone onto some other projects of his own, and we wish him well. His vocals we’re glad to say, feature on a couple of the tracks on the new album, so that’s good news.
We also welcomed newest member, guitarist Sean Crowley into the Tailor Birds fold, for the Australian shows at least. He’s brought in some really cool, tasteful vibes to the Tailor Birds sound, and the trio is sounding pretty lush, what with drums from Daniel, guitar from Sean, and myself on electric violin and vocals, all is well. There’s even a few surprises brewing…..
BACK IN MELBOURNE, WE’VE RECORDING NEWS…….we’ve a short break from shows, and it’s now back into the studio, finishing off the final few tracks of the new album, set for release in both Australia and Europe this year. This is an album recorded in all sorts of places, all over the world, with some amazing guest musicians. More news re. that to come…..but for now, just a little bit more to do, and we’ll be done. WOOOOOOOOP!!!
So……you’ll soon be able to hear all our hard work, and get your very own copy…literally in just a few months. We’ve released new single Winters’ Fall, so stay tuned for the release date of the full length album, as it’s coming soon.
So….dates, gigs, tours, recordings, releases……it’s all happening. STAY TUNED, and look after yourselves. Sophie xx
For now, here’s the latest tour video which finishes up our Winters’ Fall single launch tour, taken whilst in South Australia this last month.
