Monty Bevins Shares Single / Video 'Catalina' + Announces Release Tour

C.C. / Wednesday 7th April, 2021 9:48AM

It's been just over two years since Monty Bevins launched his Traveller EP but he certainly hasn't been putting his feet up, as the Aotearoa soul-folk songwriter has been tackling life away from the hustle and bustle of the touring circuit as a "minstrel turned father." The responsibilities accompanying Bevins' new role have inspired his forthcoming debut studio album, the first single of which 'Catalina' is out today, along with welcome news of a return to gigging with an expansive nine date nationwide tour happening in April and May. Contemplating the mysteries hinted at by an old abandoned trailer sailer, the rich tones of Bevins' 'Catalina' come accompanied by home-crafted poetic visuals reflecting on the ballad's oceanic themes. Recorded with Lee Prebble at The Surgery, you can help support the release of Bevins' first ever full length record, releasing this spring and available for pre-order direct from the artist here.

Press release:

Following on from the 7 years of constant touring that fuelled the EP 'Traveller, Monty's first 2 years as a father have defied him to delve deeply into what slowing down might uncover. The single Catalina gives us an intimate insight into this world, via the imaginary lens of whoever owned that abandoned trailer sailer down the road... There had to be a song in it!

Embracing change, reinventing life, and connecting to the source are themes that drive Monty's full-length debut album, out this spring.

Monty Bevins is a New Zealand based singer-songwriter, known as a touching, spirited performer, whose soul-folk songs ask the big questions while telling the small stories. With a warm rich voice and articulate guitar grooves, Monty digs out and distills themes of tenderness, personal revolution and adventure.
