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...

I was pleasantly surprised with his obviously honed and crafted live performance, as he effortlessly intertwined elements of folk, roots and soul together

Monty will be joined for the final 8 south island shows by eccentric-folk musician Fraser Ross, described by Capital Times as 'New Zealand's best kept musical secret'. No stranger to touring himself, Fraser will be launching a single of his own called 'Marseille' from his upcoming album 'Life is Magic, Where is my Rabbit'', due to be released in July, 2018 through Home Alone Music.
