For two nights only in Wellington and Palmerston North Fables and Albi & The Wolves will join forces to celebrate two individual new releases. Fables are dropping a E.P. called Portraits and Albi & The Wolves are dropping a new single It Ain't Easy.

Fables produce a gentle and heartfelt indie-folk sound. Songstress 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 intermingled with a collection of strings, harmonies and percussion should find you quite at home.

If you haven’t head about them already Albi & The Wolves are a New Zealand string band that creates a huge sound using only an acoustic guitar, an electric violin, a double bass, and their three voices. The band is renowned for their great stage presence and dynamic shows that they have evolved by touring extensively here and a little in Australia. Their songs stand out on their own too as the band recently won the Best Folk Artist 2018 TUI at the New Zealand Music Awards for their debut album One Eye Open. Chris Dent (the proud albino front man Albi), Pascal Roggen, and Micheal Young’s individuality shines through the music to make something compelling, uplifting, soulful and fun.

Portraits has been three years in the making and will feature a cast of musicians who have played a part in Fables development since its inception. Recorded at multiple locations, including the Wine Cellar and their own home, Portraits was mixed and mastered by Steve McGough, engineered by Rohan Evans, Scott Seabright and James Geluk and features seven tracks and beautiful instrumentation from cello to clarinet.
