The luminous Julia Deans is set to hit the road again. Starting November 18, she will be performing songs from her beautiful debut album, Modern Fables, in a series of intimate shows throughout NZ. Some of the shows will be with her band (Richie Pickard and Redford Grenell) whilst others will see Julia taking the stage solo. She will be joined by a couple of special guests at different venues - talented up-and-comers Lisa Crawley and Seth Haapu.

Formerly the front woman of Fur Patrol, Ms Deans has stepped effortlessly into the role of solo artist – delivering some of her most exquisite songs yet in the debut album Modern Fables. At times tinged with folk, at others pure balladry, Modern Fables showcases a consummate talent capable of musical storytelling that moves and inspires. Keep an ear out for her brand new single The Wish You Wish You Had.

"Possessing the voice and songwriting skills that she does, Julia Deans is arguably our best female singer, and should be considered one of our musical treasures." – Amanda Mills, NZ Musician

"If you have yet to see Julia live you really must grab this opportunity with both hands. More than just a flawless voice, she is as warm as she is honest both in concert and after the show – a truly consummate performer." – Haley Beatson, Real Groove
