New Vocalist Sam Wolstenholme Announced By Alpine Fault

New Zealand symphonic progressive band Alpine Fault announced new vocalist Sam Wolstenholme has joined the band, replacing outgoing vocalist Nadia Vanek, who sang on the band's 2011 debut LP "Iraena's Ashes."

The announcement on the band's Facebook Page reads: "Alpine Fault are very happy to announce the arrival of our new vocalist Sam Wolstenholme. After a search spanning the globe from Brazil and Argentina to the US, Russia, Portugal and Japan and throughout Australia and New Zealand, Sam emerged from our very own back yard here in Brisbane.

"Sam has been playing piano since age 5 and singing since she was 8. She studied classical voice at the University of Queensland and during her tenure there was selected to sing in various classical concerts outside of the University including a small Baroque opera.

"Sam has been working professionally at various restaurants around Brisbane as a singer accompanying herself on piano. She's been composing her own music since age 15 and it was her original music, influenced by a love for bands such as Nightwish and Epica, which really sparked the interest of the band's members.

"We're very excited to be sharing her talents with our home crowd in Brisbane next week as we support Eluveitie on their first tour to Australia and we sincerely hope to see you there to join us in welcoming her aboard.

"The band would like to thank all of you who submitted your entries and audition tapes. The sheer number of videos and audio files that came from all over the world was overwhelming and I can assure you we listened and discussed every one. For us, it was an amazing experience to hear our own music sung in so many different styles and we'll never forget it.

"We can't thank you enough for all the support you've shown us during this time. We're so happy to be back!"
