Rosy Tin Teacaddy are Wellington alt-folk duo, Holly Jane Ewens and Andy Hummel (The Woolshed Sessions, Rhian Sheehan) working under the ultra-egos Betty Grey and Billy Earl. With a partnership that dates back nearly twenty years, the duo are regarded for their on-stage symmetry and effortless blend of vocals. Formed in 2007, Rosy Tin Teacaddy have built a reputation for narrative songwriting and lyrical craft coupled with wit and poignancy. For six weeks during 2010 Rosy Tin Teacaddy were exiled to New Zealand's most volatile landscape; the Rotorua Lakes District. In the shadow of Tarawera, the mountain which unleashed a devastating volcanic eruption in 1886, Rosy Tin Teacaddy summoned the spirits and stories left buried under ash and mud. Overlooking Lake Tarawera, Billy and Betty plastered the walls inside their cottage with maps and memories, then embarked on expeditions; visiting relics, historical heroes, and trekking to what was once the eighth wonder of the world – the Pink and White Terraces.

In their journeys they discovered the characters, news reports and legends that would fuel the imaginings of travelling back in time. By forging new interpretations of existing myths, the Wellington folk duo carved their own into this full-length album; All Mountains Are Men. Written and recorded entirely in isolation at the cottage by the lake, this new collection of songs extends Rosy Tin Teacaddy's sonic palette by layering field-recordings, omnichord and cello on a bed of interlacing vocal harmonies and acoustic guitars. From an old-fashioned camera flash comes contemporary musical story-telling; cinematic and intimate. Releases 10 June 2011 Featuring a cardboard cottage on the night of June 10, 1886,the single Out of The Frying Pan and Into Fire, was written under the shadow of Mt Tarawera exactly 124 years after its eruption where Rosy Tin Teacaddy stayed up far too late and unshackled their volcanic imaginings. www.youtube.com/rosytinteacaddy Produced with thanks to Creative NZ and NZ Department of Conservation's 'Wild Creations' Artist In Residence Programme. Formed in 2007, Rosy Tin Teacaddy have built a reputation for narrative songwriting and lyrical craft coupled with wit and poignancy.

Their debut EP, Blind Leading The Blind opened to audiences with a theatre-style show while their following full-length album, The Homeward Stretch, was recorded with multi-award winner Lee Prebble and released in 2009. It was warmly received by critics, punching above its weight, “Alt country, very lovely, folky, small, enchanting, meandering. It's literally that fresh air - that smallness is just grand!” Manu Taylor, RNZ National. They have played the Nelson, Tauranga and Wanaka Arts Festivals, the ASB Magic Gardens, City and Dowse Galleries, guest-appeared on Radio NZ National and shared the stage with Chris Knox, Jose Gonzalez and Iron and Wine. … more time should have been given to Rosy Tin Teacaddy whose poetic folk lyrics, paired with serene yet melancholic vocals, were delicious.
