West Auckland’s Fables produce a gentle and heartfelt indie-folk sound. Jess Bailey was taught by the Mackenzie Hills of the south Kaipara, dredged in the waters of Muriwai Beach then hung out to dry in the plum trees at home.

This imagery is littered throughout the band’s wistful lyrics. Jess’s velveteen voice intermingles with a collection of strings and other harmonies that should find you quite at home.

The debut EP is long anticipated. Having toured the country twice in the past two years, the band bring together elements of contemporary folk music with a traditional instrumentation and depth of storytelling that endears them to both traditional folk listeners and contemporary fans alike.

Having performed with the likes of Nadia Reid, Chris Priestley, Tom Cunliffe and Graeme James, and graced the stages of the Taranaki Festival of Lights, Fables are ready to launch this new record.

Fables is Jess Bailey (guitar/vocals), James Geluk (double bass, vocals) [Frank Burkitt Band], with special guest appearances by Laurence Diack (cello), Victoria Vigenser (vocals, bodhran) [Reverie] and Cameron (Dusty) Burnell (lap slide guitar) [Frank Burkitt Band, T-Bone Trio].
