Zinnia Blue - Truth & Lies

Zinnia Blue - Truth & Lies
“Zinnia Blue features gorgeous voices and intelligent songs” – ARIA award winner Kavisha Mazzella

Drawing inspiration from historic moments, Zinnia Blue create unique songs exploring the meaning of the past. The result is a captivating combination of intelligent songwriting, folk guitar, and gorgeous vocal harmonies.

The heart of Zinnia Blue is married couple Kate Tucker and Matt Ellis who write and arrange the music together, creating a sound that is delicate, earthy, and emotional. Lead singer Tucker’s voice is sweet, rich, and rough around the edges, reminiscent of The Audreys’ Tasha Coates, and her simple fingerpicking guitar style blends perfectly with Ellis’ tastefully intricate melody guitar work. The pair’s voices weave closely together in old-timey two-part harmonies reminiscent of the Milk Carton Kids or Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris.

Zinnia Blue have played well received shows around Victoria and interstate, and at festivals such as the Guildford Banjo Jamboree, Nariel Creek Folk Festival, Tamar Valley Folk Festival, and the Cygnet Folk Festival.

Zinnia Blue release their debut album The Garden in January 2020. In support of the release, the band are appearing at the Guildford Banjo Jam in September 2019 and Cygnet Folk Festival in January 2020.

About this track...

Truth & Lies is the first single from Zinnia Blue's upcoming debut album The Garden, due for release in January 2020. A personal take on the subtle but destructive power of gossip and bragging within friendships, the song features Americana instrumentation to give this folk ballad a sweet but energetic sound, and a home in a number of roots genres.
