Following festival performances at WOMAD NZ and overseas, Wellington producer and multi-instrumentalist Lord Echo (aka Mike Fabulous) brings his new album Harmonies to San Fran in November.
Former member of roots-reggae group The Black Seeds, Mike Fabulous has been making music for over 20 years. Upon going solo, Fabulous embarked on a project called Lord Echo — Harmonies is his final album of a trilogy of albums following Curiosities (2013) and Melodies (2010).
For the celebratory album tour he'll be joined on stage by five stellar musicians: Lisa Tomlins, Mara TK, Lucien Johnson, Daniel Hayles and Izak Chads.
Fabulous blends together dub-reggae, Caribbean disco and rhythms of the 60s while remaining true to himself and incorporating touches of his favourite styles — disco, soul and jazz.
Support from Julien Dyne and Rhythm and Booze DJ with live visuals by Erika Sklenars. There will be beer by Garage Project and juices and cocktails by Almighty.
