Bond Street Bridge

Bio

Bond Street Bridge was the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Sam Prebble. Sam was a fixture of the Auckland alternative folk scene, playing mandolin, fiddle and guitar with The Broken Heartbreakers, Reb Fountain's Bandits, and the Hannah Curwood Band, as well as appearing as a guest on a range of other projects. He had been playing various instruments for as long as he could remember, and one of his favorite hobbies is learning to play more of them.

In 2008, Bond Street Bridge released his debut album The Mapmakers' Art on Monkey Records, and he then toured extensively around New Zealand, Australia and Europe. The album and the live show impressed audiences, promoters, and critics alike, with Phil Reed describing the album as 'one of the finest collections of homegrown music to cross this desk in a while' in Real Groove magazine. Graham Reid of elsewhere.co.nz included it in his best of 2008 list.

The live set was a solo show in which Sam used loop pedals and tape echoes to build up layers of guitar, violin, beats and vocals to produce a hypnotic, compelling and original sound. Audiences were drawn in to the strange world Bond Street Bridge conjured up with a combination of evocative lyrics and sonically lush instrumental arrangements. Songs about birds rub up against tales of adventure and loss, and covers of old folk songs nestle amongst rich soundscapes.

In 2010, Bond Street Bridge escaped the New Zealand winter and spent three months touring extensively through Europe and the UK. Along the way he played several shows with labelmate Tim Guy, and spent three months as the stand-in violinist for Berlin-based NZ psychedelic ensemble An Emerald City.

Sam sadly passed away on Friday 24 October 2014.
