Band & Musician News - Auckland duo Tattletale Saints announce debut album recording in Nashville, TN

28 August 2012 - 0 Comments

Old Oak Music is pleased to announce that Tattletale Saints will head to Nashville, Tennessee in January 2013 to record an album with Grammy Award winning producer Tim O’Brien.

Formally known as Her Make Believe Band, Tattletale Saints is an Auckland based duo made up of guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Cy Winstanley and bassist/vocalist Vanessa McGowan. Originally based in London, UK, Winstanley and McGowan released the Her Make Believe Band album AM Radio in 2009 to critical acclaim in the UK and New Zealand.

Tim O’Brien won a Grammy Award for his 2005 recording Fiddler’s Green, and is one of Americas top bluegrass and acoustic songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and producers.

The band will travel to Nashville, Tennessee in January 2013 to record at the Butcher Shoppe Recording Studio with Grammy Award winning engineer David Ferguson. The studio is part owned by acclaimed singer-songwriter John Prine and is the birthplace of many of Johnny Cash’s hit records.

Cy of Tattletale Saints says, “It’ll be a huge honor to work with Tim, Vanessa and I have been massive fans for a long time and he’s right up there with the best in the world for our style of music. Plus, to cut the record in John Prine’s studio in Nashville…that’s serious business!”

Testament to what an independent band can achieve via the internet, Tattletale Saints are still yet to meet Tim O’Brien in person. Thus far the project has been arranged via Facebook, Youtube, Skype and email, and the funding for the album will be raised through crowd-funding website Pledgeme.co.nz.

Press for AM Radio included Uncut Magazine UK who described songwriter/vocalist/guitarist Cy Winstanley as “a potent songwriter with a voice gently reminiscent of Paul Simon” while vocalist/bassist Vanessa McGowan “adds beguiling harmonies”. Graham Reid, New Zealand's foremost music journalist, described AM Radio as a "delightful album...hooks you in with melodies and keeps you there by virtue of the words...very sharp stuff".
