Event Details

Described by the NZ Music Commission as “our Northland treasure”, the Bay of Islands-based musician/actor Troy Kingi has embarked on an eventful few years with major acting roles in Hunt For The Wilderpeople, Pa Boys, Mt Zion and The Kick, while also enjoying a successful music career, being nominated for an APRA Silver Scroll last year, earning Vodafone Music Awards for Best NZ Soul Artist and Best Māori Artist in 2018 as well as rave reviews for his side-project, collaborative soul band L(())VE & HOPE with Mara TK and Mark Vanilau.

Troy is currently in the throes of releasing his third album ‘Holy Colony Burning Acres’, which will thematically be a stark contrast to his multi-award-winning sophomore offering, ‘Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron’, a buzzy nod to the funkadelic-soul sounds of the seventies that explored sci- themes through galactic storytelling.
