A boil-up of ingredients that seems to embody the very essence of our home, land and sea, the legendary trio, TrinityRoots is one of New Zealand’s most iconic roots acts. Reforming in 2010, the genre-bending group returned to the stage and once again captured audiences with their big-hearted, hypnotic live show. Recently, the band’s lineup was reinvigorated as Warren Maxwell and Rio Hunuki-Hemopo welcomed new cornerstone drummer/vocalist Ben Lemi. Revitalised, the band have just penned new material and are set to record their long-awaited third album, due for release in mid-2014.
SJD is the pseudonym of both Sean James Donnelly the solo artist and his live band. A critically-acclaimed musician, SJD has been nominated and received several awards for both his own musical projects and others’ whose albums he has contributed to or produced. His fifth release, Electric Wasteland (2012) was widely praised, garnering almost unanimous 5/5 star reviews and won the hotly contested 2013 Taite Prize.
Joseph & Maia:
Hailing from Tauranga, the young up-and-coming singer-songwriter duo, made up of Joseph Thompson and Maia Potier, began recording music together just recently, in April 2012. Despite the short time span performing together, the harmonious duo is becoming quickly known for a sound best described as classic folk and country with an alternative edge. This signature style has seen them release their first five-track EP, Roll Up Your Sleeves (April 2013), which Debuted at No.30 on the Official NZ Charts. Having recently returned from a small tour of Europe, the pair is now gathering new inspiration and penning new material before they head into the studio to record their first full-length album, set for release in 2014.
From Kora. Gone solo. This will rock. Witness history! Boom...
