Biography

Soft-spoken, yet with a sly sense of humor (evidenced in the liner notes of one of his albums), Age Pryor is making a name for himself in Wellington, New Zealand, but is also garnering a group of devoted fans around the globe. With his contribution to the soundtrack of the film Eagle vs. Shark, he may develop an even greater reach in the near future.

A gifted multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Pryor’s first CD was a collaboration with fellow singer-songwriter Tessa Rain. Their album, Homerecordings Tess and Adrian (released in 2000), recorded live at various performances and at Tessa’s home, creates an intimate folk-tinged atmosphere. The simplicity of the two voices, paired only with acoustic guitars, is belied by the intricacies of the playing and the thoughts provoked by the lyrics. The sounds of tui and crashing waves in the background of some of the songs add to the intimate nature of the album.

The two collaborated again on a few of the songs on Age Pryor’s solo album, City Chorus (2003). Moving away from purely acoustic work, Pryor makes the most of his talents, playing a variety of instruments and working with other exceptionally talented musicians such as drummer Chris O’Connor, and Toby Laing (of Fat Freddy’s Drop fame).

    His Shanks' Pony tour starts some time in June. I think he's got some dates up on his website (www.agepryor.co.nz) and on his myspace page, too. Oh, and he's playing in Whangarei this Thursday (May 31st?) at The Butter Factory.

    I asked Age about Tessa doing solo stuff but he said she's not going to do anything, at least in this stage of her life. He sounded as disappointed as I was!

    Anyone know where to find more music from Tessa Rain? I absolutely love her stuff from Age Pryor's albums and FMP's.
