Colette Rivers

Colette Rivers presents her long-awaited album launch tour of "Memory Lake" at Wellington's Meow.

She will perform the album in full, joined onstage by talented friends, Sarah Urwin on banjo, guitar and harmonies and Brook Davies on bass and harmonies.

Expect to hear indie-folk music and songwriting at its best: songs about life, love, nature and New Zealand, lyrics to transport you, with harmonies that weave through finger-picked guitars, banjo, mandolin and bass.

[Colette Rivers has] taken folk music and given it a good shake. - Lynn Freeman Radio NZ

“Colette's ability to grow a song and build the song keeps you gripped throughout and is one for a nice summer evening in the late evening sun. ” -Dave, The Unsigned Reviewer

Rivers' music has a sense of strong melodic hook-writing, as featured in the haunting and sometimes gritty melodies in all of her songs. The honesty and depth of Rivers' lyrics reflect her fearlessness in revisiting the past, considering life and death; beauty and pain.

After living in both the USA and United Kingdom, Rivers says coming home is a grounding experience. “Sitting, looking at the lake (Taupō), breathing in the damp kiwi bush and eucalyptus trees, there is something intangible, filled with memories.”

Opening for Colette is Wellington-by-way-of-Dunedin indie-folk band, 'Grawlixes', whose music often deals in the melancholy with self-deprecating honesty and beautiful boy-girl harmonies, sung by co-founders Robin Cederman and Penelope Esplin.
