The Tailor Birds sound is back in Australia, returning from a 5th European summer tour. 2018 looks set to be a big year, which sees Sophie touring Australia wide, staying as grass roots and tangible as possible, with a 6th european tour steadily being booked, combined with the release of 2 new records, and a possible 3rd album set to be recorded.
And so, after nearly a year away from Melbourne, Sophie’s base for the past 10 years, she is thrilled to be returning to Melbourne for a few shows, with an appearance at the South Melbourne Night Markets. With the market running a few days per week, the night market is celebrating its’ 10th birthday this year, running for 8 weeks this summer from the 4th Jan – 22nd Feb, with Tailor Birds appearing 25th Jan, 7.30 – 9.30pm.
Sophie Kinston, front woman, electric violinist and creative force behind the Tailor Birds sound, has had a few minor setbacks including a broken ankle and a suitcase of luggage being thrown out of a coach window, but she is back in full swing.
The first part of the year sees Sophie touring in support of the release of new lullaby, ‘Stilts on the Water’, in mid Feb. This is thrilling electric violin, world folk at its’ finest, and music at its’ most raw. Weaving through classical, experimental and folk inspirations, Tailor Birds builds an audience that is as diverse as much as it is one, telling tales about love, loss, hopes, dreams, that anything is possible. Connecting their people to something good again, in a world that is constantly changing, this is music to inspire, ignite the spirit, and challenge our inner most desires.
Tailor Birds play a special solo set – 7.30 – 9.30pm.
