Glass Heart String Choir New Zealand Tour Announced

A.K. / Thursday 19th December, 2019 10:10AM

Seattle folk duo Glass Heart String Choir have announced an island spanning 15-stop New Zealand tour, with guitarist and vocalist Ian Williams and violinist Katie Mosehauer winding their way around the country throughout February. Having dipped his toes in the Aotearoa water last year while on the road with US chamber-pop artist Shenandoah Davis, Williams was compelled to return to our shores with his own project. The two-piece shared their cinematic, harp-adorned collection Light last year, following it up with an instrumental counterpart to the EP earlier this year. Take a look at where you can witness the folk composers in 2020, and prepare to have your heart strings pulled...

Press release:

Seattle duo Glass Heart String Choir have an affinity with New Zealand which began when guitar-player and vocalist Ian Williams toured the country with US Chamber-pop songwriter Shenandoah Davis back in 2018. On the trip he met New Zealand artists such as Anthonie Tonnon, and dream-pop band French for Rabbits who he later joined on their US tours.

In February 2020, he will be returning to New Zealand with his own project, Glass Heart String Choir, alongside harp-player, violinist and composer Katie Mosehauer. Their extensive tour covers the north and south, weaving from Auckland to Dunedin with stops including Okarito, Hokitika, Rangiora and Palmerston North.

Glass Heart String Choir’s music is compelling in its use of sweeping cinematic strings layered and looped, intricate harp, piano and guitar arrangements, and Ian’s engaging and emotive vocal delivery. Their songs harks back to baroque composition technique at times,but also draw from classic folk writers such as Leonard Cohen and contemporary counter-parts such as Joanna Newsom and Andrew Bird.

On the tour they will be joined by some of New Zealand’s finest including French for Rabbits, celebrated writer Rose Lu, Auckland songwriter Mali Mali and more to be announced.
