Tom Lark – Brave Star Tour
August 26 @ 8:00 pm NZST$20
Tom Lark is back! After a 7-year hiatus and with a fresh APRA Silver Scroll nomination, he’s taking his show around the country in celebration of his debut full-length album – notably reaching #6 on the NZ Top Albums Chart. The tour is hitting Tauranga, Tāmaki Makaurau, Te Whanganui-a-Tara and Ōtautahi this August where Tom Lark will be playing songs from Brave Star, plus some old favourites.
Brave Star (released June 9th via Winegum Records) follows two eponymous Tom Lark EPs, which were released in 2011 and 2015 respectively. Those early tunes found a home locally on the Student Radio Network, and abroad on Australian radio station Triple J – where ‘Something To Tell You’ reached #1 Most Played.
Following this success Fowler chose to set aside the Tom Lark moniker for a period, dipping his toes in the warm waters of pop music and releasing a series of bangers under the Shannon Matthew Vanya pseudonym – as well as producing for a number of other artists, including Merk, Randa, and A.C. Freazy.
With Tom Lark’s Brave Star Fowler returns to his first love, which turns out to be making sunburnt psychedelic folk fit for sensitive cowboys to meander and muse to.
Brave Star is out through Winegum Records and available now via Bandcamp.
