NZ music legend, Caroline Easther goes on the road

Singer/Songwriter & NZ music legend, Caroline Easther releases her debut solo album, ‘Lucky’ on April 5th and takes it on the road!

On April 6th at Meow in Wellington, singer/songwriter & ex Chills Drummer, Caroline Easther will step out from behind her beloved drum kit and take to the front of the stage. Armed with her guitar and backed by her band The Cinnamon Girls, she’ll be presenting a collection of haunting indie-pop songs from her debut solo album ‘Lucky’, released on April 5th.

In her extensive career she has toured the world drumming and singing with bands and musicians such as The Chills, The Verlaines, Barry Saunders (The Warratahs), Let’s Planet and Hobnail but has always been a singer/songwriter in her own right.

The album songs cover a wide range of textures and emotions with a style and intelligence that reflects the love she has for the indie-pop genre.

Well known musician and composer David Long engineered and produced the album in his Owhiro Bay studio. He has brought his love of candid, organic sounds and his experience as a writer of atmospheric film music to Caroline’s songs and expertly infused them with space and light.

Caroline will be touring with her band, The Cinnamon Girls who are Alan Galloway, Hamish Graham and Murray Costello.

Caroline Easther And The Cinnamon Girls will do an album launch at Meow in Wellington on April 6th then play Fairfield House in Nelson, the Mussel Inn in Onekaka, the Marton Players Theatre and St Peter’s Hall Paekakariki throughout May.

Caroline made her first appearance on stage at the Marton Player’s Theatre at age 8 as a Munchkin in the Wizard Of Oz so is expecting a warm welcome in her home town.
