TrinityRoots

About TrinityRoots:

From the tail of the fish to the tip, Aotearoa was swept up in the music of TrinityRoots, a boil-up of ingredients that seemed to embody the very essence of our home, land and sea, and serve as an invocation to that same environment. The influences that the group brought together joined the dots between head-nodding reggae, slow-burning funk and jazz adventurism to form undeniably indigenous waiata, unconstrained by genre boxes.

After a triumphant return to the live stage in October 2010 with sold-out shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, an appearance at WOMAD NZ 2011, and their Australian live debut wowing audiences with a main stage performance at the prestigious Byron Bay Bluesfest, TrinityRoots looked to have embarked on a brand new phase of their musical relationship.

Music is choice – and TrinityRoots are crafting brand new material for Aotearoa to be swept up in all over again. Who knows where their adventures in sound will take us this time?

These Automatic Changers

About These Automatic Changers:

The sound of These Automatic Changers comes from everywhere and nowhere – it carves a crudely drawn map and embarks on a aural road trip through the shallows of blues music; from 70’s inspired satanic blues, chest thumping Neanderthal rock tone to swaggering proto-swing sneer straight from the archives and catalogues of any vintage and retro lover of rock music.

These Automatic Changers are:

Solomon Cole – Lee Catlin – Stu Hodkinson – Phil Peters

We have a lot of good stuff on the horizon so keep an eye on for what we have coming your way!”
