2015 has certainly kicked off!! We cannot believe how time flies. We’re heading with full speed ahead, to the end of April, it’s quite amazing. And so what’s news in the Tailor Birds world you ask?
We’ve been heads down, working away on a few projects, so we thought it was about time we filled you in, re. all tours, releases and more.
2014 saw Tailor Birds tour through Europe for the 2nd time, playing in some of our favorite venues along the way, as well as checking out and playing a few venues in Switzerland and Ireland for the first time. Switzerland was beautiful, and Ireland, what a cool part of the world!! We love you!!
We said goodbye to our wonderful Melbourne vocalist, Monique Kerr, who moved onto other projects of hers. It’s been sad to see her go, but we wish her well.
And at the end of 2014, we also secured the services of a Holland based publicist for all European shows and releases, Olga van Straten.
So……what’s on for 2015 you ask?
As of Jan ’15, we’ve been working with the talents of actor/musician Anthony Winnick for the Australian shows. The combination of Daniel Brates’ drums and Rick van der Ree’s electronics has been awesome, and with the new line up of vocals, foley, drums, electronics, guitar, harmonies and of course electric violin, the year has definitely started off with a bang!!
The year has started, and we’ve managed to write an albums’ worth of material ready for recording, alongside busily prepping for our 3rd European tour in July – Sept which will feature a lot of these new tracks.
And so with more select shows alongside a lot more promo work and video footage along the road, you’ll be able to follow us pretty much each week wherever you may be, when we’re on tour.
We’re set to increase the number of shows in Australia before and after Europe, and we have a few releases scheduled this year :
• Our live EP – Live at Club Zonnemaire released on the 27th April on a special USB stick.
• Our new single, Winters’ Fall will be released later this year.
We will also be recording throughout 2015, our much anticipated 2nd album for release in 2016.
So….what more could you want other than all the above…..before we sign off…..if you want to hear more from us, or simply get a feel-good email which we’ve started up, add your name to the mailing list, and you’ll be notified of all happenings!!
Sending you all a hello from us, you simply blow us away!! 🙂 Sophie
