Auckland duo Tattletale Saints are described as a “masterful blend of Americana fused with jazz, soul and pop”. Recently a finalist in the APRA Silver Scrolls for their song Complicated Man, they released debut album How Red Is the Blood in March.

Miles Calder is usually found fronting Wellington alt-country band Miles Calder & The Rumours but for this night you'll find him singing solo "melding energetic country with heartfelt folk...raw honesty and eloquent storytelling".
Miles Calder & The Rumours - The Crossing Over EP is out now.

Tattletale Saints (How Red Is the Blood, Old Oak Music)
"sensitively understated folk and subtle simplicity… songs as memorable, lyrically considered and melodically engaging as many of Paul Simon's… a very emotionally engaging album" Graham Reid

"Cy is a beautiful singer, melodic yet conversational, and a vocal resemblance to Paul Simon is only heightened by the ambitiousness of his songwriting… in the unadorned setting of the duo it becomes clear how complete that talent is" Nick Bollinger, The Listener April 2013.

"There is something utterly beguiling about a musician armed with a guitar and a suitcase full of memories, which need little or no adornment. There's nowhere to hide, the voice has to engage you and the songs have to have substance. That's the natural, unadulterated beauty of Tattletale Saints debut album. Cy Winstanley has the rich voice and lyric instincts of a Paul Simon and his foil, the equally talented Vanessa McGowan adds lovely punctuation harmonies and the sort of swinging bass lines that you'd expect from a jazz musician." 4.5/5 Mike Alexander, Sunday Star Times 17/04/13
