Tom Cunliffe describes himself as a story teller of moonlit folk songs.
He's another in a long list of local musicians who have made the pilgrimage to the Sitting Room Studio in Lyttleton.
What he's come up with is an album of 12 distinctly different, catchy folk songs with a rough rock edge. He calls it music for midnight drunks and the broken-hearted.
Tom Cunliffe and his merry band play tracks from his debut album "Howl and Whisper" in RNZ's Auckland studio.
