Tailor Birds

Free // Front Bar

The Tailor Birds sound is back in Australia, returning from a 5th European summer tour, and Sophie is thrilled to be returning to play the Wesley Anne, almost a year after she left Melbourne to go on the road full time.  Sophie Kinston, front woman, electric violinist and creative force behind the Tailor Birds sound, has had a few minor setbacks including a broken ankle and a suitcase of luggage being thrown out of a coach window, but she is back in full swing.

Having just finished a long stint in the studio in both Holland and Australia, recording the new record, Sophie continues on with the 'Stilts on the Water' tour throughout Australia, in support of the 'White Feather' release in mid Feb, which she now brings to Melbourne.

Many may remember Sophie from the Rosie Burgess trio, but you can now catch her in one of her only Melbourne appearances for the year.  This is thrilling electric violin, world folk at its' finest, and music at its' most raw.  Weaving through classical, experimental and folk inspirations, Tailor Birds builds an audience that is as diverse as much as it is one, telling tales about love, loss, hopes, dreams, that anything is possible.  Connecting their people to something good again, in a world that is constantly changing, this is music to inspire, ignite the spirit, and challenge our inner most desires.
