Having released his debut album last October with a nationwide tour of NZ, Monty hits the road again with the 10 songs that make up ‘Time To Bide’.

Join Monty at The Boathouse in Nelson for an intimate evening of songs and the stories / experiences that shaped them on Friday May 20. Music will start at 8, dinner menu available beforehand so pop along with some friends and make an evening of it.

Embracing change, reinventing life, and connecting to the source are themes that drive Monty’s full-length debut. Following on from the 7 years of constant touring that fuelled the EP ‘Traveller, Monty’s first 2 years as a father have defied him to delve deeply into what slowing down might uncover. With his world challenged and capacities stretched, Bevins goes about digging riches of a reflective and humbled kind, building an arc, across 10 tracks, of a moving journey into fatherhood.

Monty Bevins is a New Zealand based singer-songwriter known as a touching, spirited performer, whose soul-folk songs ask the big questions while telling the small stories. With a warm rich voice and articulate guitar grooves, Monty digs out and distills themes of tenderness, personal revolution and adventure.

I feel I could listen to these lyrics over and over and find something new each time .It feels effortless yet has the weight of much care and craft.” Jess Shanks (The EASTERN)

I was pleasantly surprised with his obviously honed and crafted live performance, as he effortlessly intertwined elements of folk, roots and soul together.” Poppy Tohill, 13th floor

An artistic gem is what I’d call Monty. Heart, soul and pure elbow grease are what go into making his song writing so special, the audience feels as though they are settling in with an old friend.
