...wants you to have a good time. Fable Cry knows that life can be perilous and hard, but encourages you to be the (anti-)hero in your own story, blowing kisses at death, and flirting your way through turmoil. They aim to always provide an inclusive space for all to feel welcome, respected, seen, and celebrated for the unique strangeness that we each embody.

Their story began in 2010 when Zac became determined to take his love of storytelling through music, theater, film, and art, and wrap it up into one bundle of entertainment. He and his sister, former member Kirstie, had half of what would become their first album written before they would have a title by which to call themselves. The songs were all rambunctious, melodic, and wrapped in themes of loss, love, hate, and triumph playfully told through tales of legend and myth. "Fable Cry" was born, and in 2011 they self released their self-titled debut album. Between the two of them they played guitar, violin, accordion, drums, bells, kazoo, ukelele, banjo, and cello, and they tried their best to include as much of it as possible in their live shows, along with humorous intros, crowd participation, and twistedly playful "Story Time" between songs.
