Rosy Tin Teacaddy


Rosy Tin Teacaddy are Billy Earl and Betty Grey (aka Andy Hummel and Holly Jane Ewens). Since early 2007 the duo have been wooing discerning music lovers with their indie-folk sing-alongs.

Based in Wellington, the wry lyrical flavour of Rosy Tin Teacaddy is proving popular with live audiences. The group has shared the stage with international artists Jose Gonzalez, and Iron and Wine, plus locals Chris Knox, Jess Chambers, Teacups, Ragamuffin Children, Matt Langley, The Broken Heartbreakers, Achilles Botes, Ashes of August, and Tim Guy.

Holly Jane Ewens (Betty), is a compulsive cryptic crossworder, poet, and actor. She owns a fine set of vocal cords and writes killer tunes. Andy Hummel (Billy), who has had previous incarnations as an electronica boffin remixing the likes of Pitch Black, Rhian Sheehan and The Black Seeds, is currently a member of The Woolshed Sessions.

The pair’s debut release as Rosy Tin Teacaddy, 'Blind Leading The Blind', prompted the addition of accompanying musicians, Janet and Shona Holborow on cello and violin, Ben Fulton’s electric guitar wizardry and the solid bass of Alistair Fraser.

In late September 2008 the band gathered in ‘The Surgery’ studio of Tui award winner Lee Prebble and recorded their second album, to be released on April 1, 2009, entitled The Homeward Stretch.

… more time should have been given to Rosy Tin Teacaddy whose poetic folk lyrics, paired with serene yet melancholic vocals, were delicious.
Jose Gonzelez review by Dawn Tratt. Capital Times, 16 January 2008

Vocally flawless, and with gentle melodies, Rosy Tin Teacaddy are an altogether lovely experience.

TKS: I love bands who have good on-stage banter like Rosy Tin Teacaddy in Wellington.
Charlie: They are quite geeky, but that’s what makes them fab.
James: Yeah, none of this bullshit “singer songwriter” banter… hahaha.
