Album Notes
Savornine are Jacqui Thompson and Jeff Reid

Jacqui was born and brought up in New Zealand. By repute she has some upper-class polynesian blood in her veins, after a group of 18th Century english sailors threw the captain overboard and then sailed a chocolate bar and a few local royals to a remote South Pacific Island. Despite this illustrious heritage, the stork dropped the newly born Jacqui down the wrong chimney pot, so adding in an irish-danish background, a shock of red hair, and a lifelong distrust of large birds.

Jeff's also a bit wary of large birds, but that's a different story. He was born in the UK, and brought up in a household forever listening to Ray Charles (positive) and Jim Reeves (… not so positive...). In a bizarre twist of fate, the young Jeff was given a chess set and encouraged to play. Years later, and still unable to get a tune out of it, he switched to guitar and soon mastered a few blues licks, but forever after he has struggled to hold onto his pawns.

Jacqui and Jeff first met backstage at the local kindergarten during the annual Sid Vicious Tribute Concert. Some years later, when they were both in a bit of a lull after children left home, they met up again and decided to put their musical talents together. Savornine is the result.

The first album "Red Black Blue" was recorded over about a year. Progress was hampered by the loss of some crucial vocal tracks recorded at Andrew Gallie's studio in Hawke's Bay, and a few seemingly inconsequential events like Jeff breaking his arms. Never mind, said arms are now waving around ok, often intentionally.

Savornine are based in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. That's a region world famous for fine wines and food, and this is music to enjoy with both. It's a mix of blues- and jazz-inspired songs to brighten your day and mellow your nights. We think you'll love playing it. Give it a try!

this album is just wonderful - I must listen to it one day - is annie lennox singing on this track ?
Guitar player sounds like he has full use of his fingers at last

Well worth a listen
Interesting debut by Savornine, much better name than Stabgoat as well. Needs to listened to a few times before it really starts to make an impact. Jacqui's voice grows on you with each listen in my opinion. A most commendable effort which has been very well put together and well worth a few bob of anybody's money.

Philip Whitehead

An ecelectic mix of new songs and artfully reworked old favourites. Jeffs precise guitar work is delightfully complemented by Jaqui's vocals to produce a sound that is uniquely Savornine
