Finn Andrews brings an intimate solo performance to Leigh Sawmill on Saturday June 17.
The Veils frontman and songwriter is playing in Leigh as one of only three solo shows. It comes off the back of The Veils summer tour in New Zealand and sellout shows in the US.
Finn is back in NZ for winter before the band tours Europe with its latest album, Total Depravity, in September.
Andrews will be showcasing tracks from The Veils catalogue, as well as new material and unheard solo pieces.
“For these intimate little shows I’ll just be playing the songs as they were first written, with nothing for me to hide behind, except for a piano, which I guess is actually really quite a good thing for hiding behind,” he says.
“It’s also a good excuse for me to try out a few new songs that have just recently come into the world and to see how they fare in the light.”
Andrews often returns to NZ, his home away from home. He was born in London, the son of musician Barry Andrews, and moved to the North Shore in Auckland when he was 12, before moving back to London when he was 16. His influences include Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen. The Veils’ debut album was released in 2004.
