Loading the player ...
Tattletale Saints' members make their first appearance on Mountain Stage
, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va.
Originally from New Zealand, the band consists of singer-songwriter Cy Winstanley and vocalist and upright bassist Vanessa McGowan. The pair found each other in London, where Winstanley moved in 2004; he spent years busking, writing and playing for everyone who would listen. McGowan arrived via a stop at UNLV, where she pursued a master's degree in jazz bass.
While in London, the two began playing with the group Her Make Believe before finding a new home in Nashville to focus on their own sound. There, Tattletale Saints recorded an album alongside Grammy-winning producer Tim O'Brien — the guest host of this episode of Mountain Stage
. The resulting disc, How Red Is the Blood
, took home Folk Album of the Year honors at the 2014 New Zealand Music Awards. This set includes "Fell Upon the Fields," which was not heard during the radio broadcast.
- "Fell Upon The Fields"
