Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 15th September 2018
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.
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.
