Michael Llewellyn & The Darlings Announce Album Release Tour

Michael Llewellyn & The Darlings Announce Album Release Tour

C.C. / Tuesday 31st August, 2021 10:12AM

Rising Te Whanganui a Tara songwriter Michael Llewellyn shared his reflective latest single 'Time It Ain't Easy' last Friday, surely summing up the feelings of many Aotearoa listeners grappling with the current time-dilating effects of alert Levels 3 and 4. Llewellyn's new album Oh My Darling will be launching this October and as a cherry on top he's announced a celebratory tour of Te Ika a Maui — spreading the good word with backing band the Darlings and joined for all events by fellow Wellingtonian Violet Hirst. Tāmaki's Mini Simmons will bring their signature rock swagger to the super city shows too, mark these dates in your digital diary...

Press release:

Soft and raspy, poetic and bouncy, 'Michael Llewellyn,' with his backing band the 'Darlings', are a Wellington-based band contrived primarily from butterscotch and smoke.

Inspired by the likes of Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen his music is vulnerable and honest. Carried by an infectious groove, crunchy guitars and gritty vocals, Michael Llewellyn along with his five piece backing band packs a punch.
