Tiddas Reform For Archie Roach Tour

Amy Saunders, Lou Bennett and Sally Dastey have reformed as Tiddas for a tour with the legendary Archie Roach in May.

Tiddas broke up in 2000 after 10 years together. Their debut album ‘Sing About Life’ (1993) reached no 36 on the Australian chart. ‘Tiddas’ (1996) reached no 26.

“In 2000, when Tiddas disbanded after 10 years together, we left behind a swag of memories, the touring Tarago, cassette players (I still have the cassettes though) and more than a few backing vocals on various recordings,” Amy Saunders said in a statement. “From TV & movie soundtracks, a couple of Powderfinger albums, & Uncle Jimmy Little’s 1999 award winning album, ‘Messenger’, the one recording that left an indelible impression was for Archie Roach. Jen Anderson had produced an incredibly warm and inviting recording, Archie’s songwriting and vocals welcomed the listener like a cherished friend and we, Tiddas, were left to add our bits and bobs. That recording never saw the light of day until now. So here we are, 18 years after going our separate ways, about to embark on a journey to honour that moment in time”.
