From the bush clad hills of the wild west of Auckland come Catherine Tunks - with her Bona Fide
Band – a well-travelled songstress with her raggle taggle gang of talented musician boys that pack a
punch alongside her sassy & original style.
With influences from the Americana Southern Country & Rock styles of the 70's - these guys are the full rodeo of original country soul, gospel strong vocals, sweet tunes and down home country blues.
Vocalist & songwriter Catherine (Cat) Tunks is an award nominated musician with 3 albums behind her, a global gyspy of musical stories having lived and worked in Ireland, Germany, Nashville and the Pacific Islands.
Tunks has supported many of NZ music industrys major players.
One can hear influences of Bonnie Raitt, Emmy Lou Harris, in her songwriting. Mixing in a little black magic and gospel, she can rise to moments of Aretha Franklin-esque energy in her live vocals and here you will find yourself on a road trip through the land where the boundaries of blues, americana, jazz and country become one.
Joined by special guest Steve Rose (Dacoda) blues legend and harp playing songwriter and NZ Music gypsy.
