Greg Johnson and Mel Parsons are teaming up for a dream New Zealand tour of songs and swagger. 

 Mel and Greg will perform alongside their super-talented hybrid band featuring Ted Brown, Josh Logan and Jed Parsons.

Mel has been busy touring here, Australia and around Europe in support of her much acclaimed third album Drylands. She’s looking forward to wrapping up the year with this national tour, her first with Greg.

“We’re going to have great fun with each others songs. Touring our country on the cusp of summer with Greg and a great band – bring it on!”

Says California-based Greg: “I met Mel when she opened for me in Queenstown in 2011.  She impressed me a lot as a wonderful songwriter and since then she’s gone from strength to strength building an audience all around the world.

“I’m sure my crowd and hers will cross over a fair bit, while the uninitiated are in for a great night of discovery”.

Greg’s forthcoming EP Low Frequency Word will be released prior to the tour and available on CD at the shows.

Expect plenty of songwriting gems from the pair responsible for the likes of Save Yourself, I Won’t Let You Down, Isabelle, Far Away, Don’t Wait Another Day, Get Out Alive, Now The Sun Is Out, and many many more.
