Gig Information

Home Alone Music are proud to announce that Fraser Ross & 04s are releasing their new L.P. ‘Life is Magic, Where is my Rabbit'’ with a nationwide tour that kicks off with a SEATED SHOW at San Fran, Wellington on August 17th.

Ross lives in the southern-most suburb of Wellington: Lyttelton. However, he has teamed up with highly active members of Wellington's music scene to create a four-piece comprised of two guitars, two vocals, bass and drums. While not unusual instrumentation, their songs span a broad territory, from electric-folk, to afro-beat, with Ross' lyrical acuity, the glue that somehow makes it all work.

With a fifty-fifty split of ladies & gentlemen in the band; Jacqui & Olivia locking down the rhythm section, and Fraser & Jeremy adding the frilly bits, on paper, at least they are quite unique.

The 10-track album was recorded in Surgery Studios, Wellington with Dr. Lee Prebble in the cockpit. It marks their first release as a band, following two EPs, and an LP by Ross (‘And Birds Do Sing’ 2009, ‘To Places,’ 2012, and ‘Mongrels’ 2015). They will kick off the release tour at San Fran in Wellington on August 17th, followed by Lyttelton Records in Christchurch on August 18th. Both of these shows will feature the full band. The remainder of the dates will feature Ross in a solo incarnation.


Fraser Ross is a builder, poet, comedian, and ‘NZ’s best-kept musical secret’ (Capital Times). He has a voice that was honed in Scotland's rowdy pubs during his three-year tenure there, and a lyrical style that can be uplifting, and at times, quite moving.

He has shared the stage with some of NZ’s best including, Nadia Reid, The Nudge, and The Phoenix Foundation, and has had Bill Murray join him on stage for a two-hour sing-a-long.

In 2015, he did a three-week run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a comedy show he wrote called ‘Another name for Thesaurus.’

On top of this, he recently finished rebuilding a house damaged in the Christchurch Earthquakes.
