First ever vinyl reissue of Tamas Wells' masterpiece released in 2006

"A Plea en Vendredi" is 2nd album by Australian singer-songwriter Tamas Wells. Fifteen years after the release, finally it will be available on LP for the first time.

Most of the songs in this album were written in Myanmar, where he moved for a short period of time to work for a local health NGO involved in HIV/AIDS education. After he came back to Melbourne, he recorded with his band members. He had several hours of recording and the recordings were carefully selected and stripped down to eleven beautiful songs.

A simple, folky acoustic sound with acoustic guitars and piano to complement his special voice. The multi-recorded chorus by himself was intoxicating, and the exquisite melody is amazing. 'Valder Fields', a masterpiece with a beauty that seems out of this world and a sadness behind it, has been loved for many years by those who seek something quiet, delicate, and beautiful.

Tamas Wells is a songwriter based in Melbourne, Australia.

In 2006 Wells and two friends borrowed some instruments and recording gear and made the low fi single Valder Fields (from the album A Plea en Vendredi). The single was well received in Australia being named Single of the Week in Melbourne’s Beat magazine and gaining airplay on national broadcasters.

Over the following year however, the single went on to become an online hit, receiving over twenty million streams around the world. The subsequent album A Plea en Vendredi received excellent reviews and public support (reaching number 16 in Japan’s HMV international charts). Wells signed a number of international record deals and toured in Japan, France, China, and Australia.

Following the international success of Valder Fields and A Plea en Vendredi, Wells moved to Myanmar (Burma) to take up a position as an aid worker.

He lived in Myanmar for the following six years and then returned to Melbourne in 2012. He has released four more critically acclaimed albums. Two Years in April (2008) was recorded by Wells in his apartment in Myanmar using only guitar and a Burmese banjo. Thirty People Away (2010) was produced by Nathan Collins in Hobart, Australia. The 2013 album On the Volatility of the Mind (2013) – with the single A Riddle - was produced by Nick Huggins in Melbourne, Australia. His 2017 album The Plantation was recorded at Wells' home in Melbourne and by Nick Huggins in Point Lonsdale, Victoria.

During this time, Wells also contributed music to two short films, and produced a live album Signs I Can’t Read - which was recorded at Sonorium in Tokyo, Japan.
