Tour Information
New Tinder-recovery album to be released by Nelson singer-songwriter Jacquie Walters at two upcoming concerts

Recovering from the vagaries of dating site Tinder prompted the writing and recording of a new album of music by Nelson-based singer-songwriter Jacquie Walters.

“There’s nothing like heartbreak and angst to motivate a songwriter to put pen to paper,” says Jacquie. “While I put a few personal demons to rest with these songs, the album also canvases other topics such as my gratitude for living in Whakatū/Nelson and our family’s grief at the passing of a loved one during level 4 lockdown in 2020 in the title track “The Forest”.

“It’s an album about healing in many ways and I hope it provides some solace for others. A few good laughs should also come from some of the other songs, such as “New World”, the one which deals with running into an ex at the supermarket.”

The new album will be available online via Bandcamp from 1 November.

Audiences at two upcoming concerts will get a sneak preview of the new material live when Jacquie performs at The Boathouse in Nelson on Friday, 29 October from 8pm and at the Mussel Inn in Onekaka on Saturday, 30 October from 8pm.

She will be supported at both gigs by engaging and witty fellow singer-songwriter Fraser Ross.

“Fraser is a total delight on stage, his songs are fantastic, and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing him perform when he toured earlier in the year with Amiria Grenell,” says Jacquie.

Tickets for the gig at the Boathouse are $15 per person and are available via www.undertheradar.co.nz. The concert starts at 8pm. The Mussel Inn gig also starts at 8pm with ticketing information available from the venue.
