Last in Aotearoa for 2018's sun-soaked Laneway Festival in leafy Albert Park (see Connor Crawford's photos HERE to experience waves of nostalgia), Buffalo, New York-born new age / folk songwriter Julie Byrne has announced her long awaited return. Byrne will be performing here in trio formation at Tāmaki Makaurau's The Tuning Fork and Pōneke's Meow on 13th and 14th January, following the standout success of her celestial new 2023 album The Greater Wings (and with a new EP on the way) — dedicated to her longtime collaborator Eric Littmann (who passed away halfway through the record's creation), and praised by Pitchfork as "her most stunning yet". Be sure to grab tickets for these very special events when they go live this Friday, brought to you by Strange News Touring...

Press release:

Strange News Touring are ecstatic to announce the long-awaited return of American indie-folk singer-songwriter Julie Byrne, playing two shows in Aotearoa this January, playing Saturday 13 January at Auckland’s Tuning Fork, and Sunday 14 January at Meow in Wellington Julie Byrne, touring as a trio, is here on the back of her stunning album The Greater Wings, as well as a brand new, yet to be released EP. For those who have heard the album, which is the follow-up to her stunning 2017 breakthrough album, Not Even Happiness, you’ll already be under its spell. One of the surest bets to top end-of-year lists, The Guardian gave it five stars, and called it “a stunning study of love and loss”, and the album has drawn comparisons to Sufjan Stevens’ similarly cathartic masterpiece Carrie & Lowell.
