Ivy Rossiter is packing her bags and hitting the road again as she heads on tour to support the release of Luckless' sophomore album Vindication Blues. The nomadic musician relocated from Auckland to Lyttelton more than a year ago and quickly immersed herself in the small and supportive folk scene that the Christchurch port town has to offer. She soon set to work on the new album that builds on the sonic arrangements which came to light in her 2012 self-titled debut. When she was happy with the tracks she got some of the best ears in the industry to help contribute to its certain success - it was recorded locally by Ben Edwards at The Sitting Room, Mixed at The Lab in Auckland by Olly Harmer, and then mastered by Angus McNaughton.

Although Luckless is helmed by Rossiter and is often used a solo moniker, it shifts and morphs into a two-piece and beyond, depending on the need at the time. Vindication Blues encompasses the efforts of long-time collaborator Logan Compain (who is based in Auckland), and for the tour the pair will be joined by Rob Collins on bass (Dictaphone Blues, Heavy Jones Trio) and Ben Eldridge on guitar (Warlords Of Atlantis, Heavy Jones Trio). Before she hit the road we caught up with Rossiter to see how life in Lyttelton is treating her and what influence the new environment has had on her music...
