Cloudboy touring band: Johannes Contag, Craig Monk, Demarnia Lloyd, John White, Heath Te Au
On Record Store Day 2023, Dunedin’s dream pop originators, Cloudboy, released their remastered, revered 2001 album, ‘Down at the End of the Garden’ on vinyl for the first time, with the limited edition selling out nationwide.
Now fans will be able to experience the full glory of Down at the End of the Garden performed live throughout Aotearoa, in intimate seated venues, enveloped by Cloudboy’s master musicianship and a densely-textured, immersive full-length film.
Called a “wildly ambitious record...fearless and far-reaching” by RNZ’s Tony Stamp, Down at the End of the Garden is an album that easily leapt into Aotearoa’s ‘classic album’ list, featuring band members Craig Monk, Jo Contag, Demarnia Lloyd and Heath Te Au. Jo said, “The main aim of Cloudboy was to frame Demarnia's songs and compelling voice in unusual and evocative ways”, and intricate musical arrangements set to a pop sensibility sailed this record into the collections of the nation.
Cloudboy’s touring band is comprised of Demarnia Lloyd (vocals), Craig Monk (violin, guitar, synth), Johannes Contag (guitar, flute, bass), original drummer Heath Te Au, backing tracks and John White (violin, backing vocals); live visuals created by Ōtautahi Christchurch-based photographer/film-maker Stuart Lloyd-Harris.
