Plum Green NZ Tour 2012
Ever the intrepid traveller, Auckland trobadour Plum Green once again embarks on a tour across New Zealand, in support of her forthcoming album, Rushes, due for release October 8th.
Plum's début album brings together an eclectic collection of musicians to contribute to her songs – creating a captivating, unique album. Every bit of Rushes vision has been crafted from the songwriters' history of stunning imagery, with her involvement throughout the entire process (from writing and recording to mastering and album artwork) leaving Plum's indelible touch many have come to love about the endearing performer.
Recorded over many moons (literally – the recording sessions took place well into the midnight hour) with engineer Zorran Mendonsa (Cobra Kahn, Subtract) at his hallowed West Auckland studio, The Green Room, Rushes also saw Plum take to some of New Zealand music's historic recording spaces – including Arch Hill Recording Studios.
Rushes also boasts a fine array of New Zealand musical talent – a testament to the widespread appeal Plum has amassed from her contemporaries. Fleur Jack, John McDermott (Headless Chickens), Corey Friedlander (Fornex Chemica) and Nikolas Kissell are just a few names that have in some way, shape or form been involved in the process of crafting this album.
In conjunction with the release of her follow up to 2010's The Red EP and subsequent tour, Plum Green and her band hit the road from mid October to charm live audiences once again with her bewitching performances.
