Good Habits are a UK alt-folk duo, telling stories and turning heads across the globe.
Composed of singer-cellist Bonnie Schwarz and accordionist Pete Shaw, Good Habits create folk-infused songs that test the limits of their traditional instruments.
Covid-19 saw them 'stranded' in New Zealand whilst on tour. In the year since, Good Habits have performed alongside a line up of New Zealand’s top acts including Nadia Reid and Lost Tribe Aotearoa. The release of their debut album, ‘Going For Broke’, gained them shining reviews in Songlines, appearances in National Paper NZ Herald, and a tight tour schedule including performances at New Zealand’s largest festivals: Splore, TSB Festival of Lights, Resolution and many more.
