Gig Information

3 songwriters perform a set each at Auckland's The Wine Cellar.

Doors open 8.00pm with a $10 cover, music from 9pm.

Michael Morris is a songwriter and music producer based in Dunedin. His work is dark and psychedelic, drawing influence from blues, folk and rock n roll. A veteran of eleven national tours, an Australian jaunt and the critically acclaimed album release of “Beautiful Mire” with his band The River Jesters, Michael now branches out as a solo act on his first tour alone, visiting fifteen New Zealand destinations. He is currently recording his debut album titled “Slow Loris”. This eight-song collection is an entirely self-produced effort that explores themes of disorientation, morality and overwhelming change. The record is expected to be unveiled in late 2018 after Michael relocates to Europe for its release.

Abigail Knudson has made huge strides in her music career since the release of her debut EP two years ago. A move from her hometown of Dunedin to Auckland reaped immediate benefits, signing with eclectic indie label BigPop Music, where she also works as a writer and producer for others on the label roster. Artistically she expands on ideas first established on self-released tracks, which are sweet and confronting. The results form a melodramatic aural melange and marks Abigail out as one of the country's most intriguing and exciting new talents.

Paul Cathro is a musician and songwriter from Dunedin, NZ. As frontman and lead songwriter for Alizarin Lizard, Paul has blazed a trail all over the country on mammoth tours and released two albums of unique psychedelic pop songs. He also plays in intellectual indie favourites Ha the Unclear & co-founded the sleazy pop rock band Fat Children. Paul recently released an EP and has an album in the works to come out within the year.
