Recorded in a grassroots studio, nestled in the mountain Valleys of Queenstown, New Zealand- 'For The Weary Traveller' is a reflection on life's journey, poetically encompassed by staggering landscapes of the most beautiful country on earth.
Born in the desert city of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and raised in the South Island of New Zealand, It's no wonder this Southern Hemisphere songstress writes with a reverence for nature.
Reminiscent of Americana Folk Greats, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, this collection of unique, carefully crafted songs will reach into the heart of humanity, and take you on a journey through the struggles and joys of the travellers life.
