Following their performance on Netflix’s Sweet Tooth, Aotearoa Music Awards finalist for Best NZ Folk Artists (2021), You, Me, Everybody, are heading out on tour to celebrate with tickets available Friday 19 May.

With a wider audience since their appearance on Sweet Tooth, the band are looking forward to getting out, playing tracks from their previous releases and trying out some new material.

You, Me, Everybody (Aotearoa Music Awards’ Best Folk Artist Finalist for 2021), have gained recognition for pushing boundaries to create their own form of New Zealand’s progressive bluegrass. Their music challenges the usual rhythms and chord patterns of traditional bluegrass to create songs that feature more complex and nuanced emotional subjects such as alienation and isolation, in addition to the staples of whiskey, love and loss.

The band was founded by brothers Laurence Frangos-Rhodes (guitar and vocals), Sam Frangos-Rhodes (vocals, mandolin and fiddle), and features Kim Bonnington (vocals) and Nat Torkington (banjo). The band are also welcoming Rob Henderson (Shake ‘em on Downers) into the group following James Geluk’s departure overseas. Rob brings a great groove into the and adds to the onstage and offstage energy of all things You, Me, Everybody.

Auckland audiences are in for an extra treat as the tour includes a double bill at the Tuning Fork with Looking For Alaska. Offering up a sound rooted in country-style guitar and soaring harmonies woven together at their very fibre, their sound is intensified by their on-stage chemistry. The duo's familiarity, closeness and authenticity is fuelled by their real-life romance, creating a magnetic performance style that captivates their audience time and time again. Finalists for the Taite Music Prize’s Best Independent Debut Album, 2017, Amy and Aaron deliver everything from thigh-slapping, foot-stomping folk sing-alongs, to poignant heart-rending ballads drenched in melancholy.

The Sweet Stranger tour is travelling to:

Globe Theatre Palmerston North 8 July

San Fran Wellington 9 July

Jam Factory Tauranga 22 July

Tuning Fork* Auckland 23 July
