Great North is planning to come with four vocalists, two acoustic guitars, a pedal steel and a mandolin,

Alt folk country band Great North are centred around husband-and-wife songwriter Hayden Donnell and bassist Rachel Donnell. Numerous stage performances and two critically acclaimed albums have established them as alt. country charmers.

The band’s debut album, Newfoundland, features tales of infatuation and heartbreak, while second album, Halves, is a collection of songs about the hours spent with those who are counting on our promises, set to music that owes as much to the soundscapes of experimental indie rock as it does to Okkervil River, Gillian Welch, Justin Townes Earle, Bruce Springsteen and other stalwarts of the Americana genre.

Halves has received critical acclaim across both the music and general media, being dubbed ‘majestic’ and ‘meaningful’. The album won the Tui Award for Best Folk Album at the 2013 New Zealand Music Awards, and featured in the New Zealand Herald best albums of 2012 list:

Though there are plenty of New Zealand bands treading the alt-country folk-rock route and trying to make the sound their own, Aucklanders Great North stood out as something special on their second album which came with elegantly turned lyrics speaking of love, hope, death and life in uncertain times delivered in arrangements that built something quietly majestic out of their rustic, mostly acoustic, approach.
