Baloo

About Baloo:

Baloo is an indie rock outfit and the musical creation of singer songwriter Henry Beasley (Vocals/Guitar), Charles Beasley (drums), Pierre Beasley (keys) and Guy Harrison (bass).

The four piece continuously pushes the boundaries of the popular music scene with their insatiable need for musical innovation which sees them blend styles together to create something entirely new. Elements of alternative rock meet hip hop beats and blues licks to allow a quirky yet collected style to consistently impress audiences and leave catchy melodies ringing in their ears.

With influence from Kings of Leon to Kanye West, Baloo prides itself in its ability to harmoniously blend such contrasting styles together.

Grayson Gilmour

About Grayson Gilmour:

Grayson Gilmour has been channeling his existential musings into song since the early Y2Ks. He leads a threefold life as solo artist, film composer & So So Modern synth-dude, attempting to balance an introverted, extroverted, contemplative, hedonistic & ecstatic type of musical schizophrenia… or just his general over-enthusiasm.

Its been a steady evolution, starting at 16 with his first solo CD-Rs, to forming ‘So S0 Modern’ at 20, to scoring his first feature film at 26.

Gg’s latest album ‘Infinite Life!’ was released early 2014 on Flying Nun, he is currently performing both as a soloist and with a band, while also undertaking his Masters in Composition.

Reviews

Infinite Life!… sees Gilmour continue his rise as one of the most exciting musicians currently active in the country.” – Max Walker, Under The Radar

“Gilmour’s sense of the little things that matter in music make most of his contemporaries sound like amateurs!” – Gary Steel, Metro 

“He makes places and characters come to life, breaking down the facade of modern pop music and presenting a more realistic approach to song writing that completely exposes itself to the listener.” – Nick Fulton, Einstein Music Journal

“Who else writes tunes as achingly beautiful as these? Not many people around here, that’s for sure!” – Nick Bollinger, The Listener

Beach Pigs

About Beach Pigs:

Melodic noise popsters based in Auckland.

Influences: We all have different tastes in music. For example Dahnu really loves Frank Ocean and listens to it blasting around the flat. Suren loves Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs at the moment. Billy still loves Tool. We all have varied influences at one time. Fleetwood Mac has been pretty radical for us. Also the Cure, the Beatles and Joy Division. John Frusciante is my favourite guitarist in the whole world.” Daniel Kerr

Band members are:

Dahnu – vocals
Daniel – guitar
Billy – bass
Suren – drums

Beach Pigs were finalists for the Critics Choice award at the New Zealand Music Awards in 2012.
