“Like Presley and Joplin at a dream jam” Post To Wire

The album was written on the road and features a strong connection to Aotearoa, Matt Joe Gow grew up in Dunedin in the South Island, a place with bad weather and good music, meanwhile Kerryn Fields was raised in the North Island with one hand on guitar and the other firmly upon her heart.

Over the past year, the duo have captivated audiences across New Zealand and Australia with extensive touring, gracing renowned stages including the Tussock Country Music Festival, The National Folk Festival, Nannup Music Festival and many more.

“Glorious from the get go” Countrytown

Layered with honest songwriting and ragged instrumentation I Remember You is their true story. Equal parts uplifting and introspective, exploring themes of love, loss and the indelible marks left by the places we call home.

TESS LIAUTAUD - GOLD DIGGER TOUR

SATURDAY 25 MAY

Bad Gin Sanctuary Presents The Gold Digger Tour!

In celebration of her new single Tess Liautaud and her band are setting out on a huge 12 date tour of Aotearoa.

The recipe for any country hit worth its weight is a catchy hook and a healthy measure of wry wit, served up with swagger and aplomb.

Liautaud wrote Gold Digger in Otago while imagining a song that John Prine might sing, and though the result is uniquely her own, there is a through-line; honest truths cloaked in humorous word play and a simple melody.

After releasing her debut album in 2022, Gold Digger is bursting with crunchy guitars and that Americana feel-good delivery, a taste of things to come.
