Much loved kiwi troubadour Monty Bevins hits the road this May and June to celebrate the release of his new single Lovers Again. The nationwide tour kicks off in Auckland in the beautiful Unitarian Church on 1A Ponsonby Road.

Known as a touching, spirited performer, whose soul-folk songs ask the big questions while telling the small stories, Bevins has built a loyal following throughout his homeland. With a warm rich voice and articulate guitar grooves, he digs out and distills themes of tenderness, personal revolution and adventure. Perpetually touring, at a pace that allows encounter, Monty draws inspiration from the stories of the people he meets...

Lovers Again was a song I wrote about on an older couple I met in Arthurs Pass whose three girls have all since moved out into the world, leaving Mum and Dad at home in a big house in Woodstock (Canterbury).

That's where I went round to visit them on the day they were getting set to move out, south to a smaller place, struggling to turn the page as they pointed to the spot on the floor their eldest daughter had taken her first steps, and the height markings etched into the door frame...

He'll be joined on the tour opener by special guest Tui Mamaki, who performs haunting, spirited vocals over hypnotic odd-meter grooves. A meeting of delicacy and power. Original compositions on vocal and guitar, inspired by Tui Mamaki's love affair with Bulgaria. Spliced with traditional song, these are stories of love, harvest, death and transcendence.

"Powerful, microtonal vocals..." The Listener - Nick Bollinger
