Holly Throsby Announces 'Team' album tour




In celebration of her fourth long-player, Holly Throsby announces the Team tour. This is the biggest tour that Throsby and her band, The Hello Tigers, have embarked on since 2008. It takes them to all edges of Australia, with 21 shows throughout March, April & May.

  

Following 2008's internationally acclaimed A Loud Call, Team was recorded in a 19th century church in the NSW Southern Highlands with long-time collaborator, Tony Dupe. Set amidst teams of wooden instruments – cello, violin, upright bass, piano, pump organ and nylon string guitar - the album presents its own little universe of cascading songs: explorations of companionship, separation, and the natural world. In a live setting, Throsby and her band render these new songs beautifully and inventively, with Bree van Reyk on drums, accordion and broken tool kit percussion & Jens Birchall on cello, bass & mandolin.

  

Having previewed a handful of new songs during October's Here Is My-Co Pilot tour, Throsby and her band will share further material as special guest to M. Ward on his East coast tour in February. The Team tour begins soon thereafter with an official album launch on March 6th at The Balmain Town Hall. This show, an early evening Sunday performance, promises to be extra special, with a host of guest musicians and singers to be revealed on the night. Supports for all dates will be announced shortly.
