A master of the-human-voice-as-instrument, electronic musician, violinist, and pianist, Calla is one of those people for whom music is not a pond lightly dabbled in, but an ocean that she calls home. It’s not so much that she plays music; it simply pours out of her. Expect elements of operatic vocals, heavy bass, and hommages to the worlds of folk, pop, and cinema epics. If music is the language of the soul then Calla speaks truth in many tongues./$25-$30 + booking fee utr.co.nz
Iconic singer of 'Bathe in the River' and creator of 2021's chart-topping album Coming In From The Dark will perform in small-scale, seated venues for the nationwide tour, intimate settings within which to experience the emotional vulnerability and melodic majesty of Smith's songbook. In candid spirit Smith will be sharing never before heard works from her forthcoming new album "and even the songs that won't make the cut", and chat with audiences about "the inspirations, challenges, and triumphs that have shaped her artistic identity".
Centered around the gruff and husky vocal delivery from the group's name sake, Julian Temple Band's line up consists of layers of orchestral strings (Alex Vaatstra), delay-saturated guitars (Andy Straight), and slippery touches of keyboard and synthesisers (Logan Hampton) add a vast depth to the already incredibly tight foundation of funky jangling acoustic guitar and dark vocals (Julian Temple), thumping bass (Stephen Marshall) and precisely dynamic drumming (Paul McLennan-Kissel).
Today the Julian Temple Band have shared 'No Evil', the first single from their upcoming seventh studio album Tunnels, out September 22 digitally and on limited edition vinyl pressed by Aotearoa’s Holiday Records. Special note must be made of a rare Don McGlashan appearance, providing haunting tenor horns to the song Guilt.
With roots in Portland's fertile punk and garage scenes - bass player Kelly Halliburton was in the Pierced Arrows with Dead Moon's Fred & Toody Cole and the Spurs late and lamented original drummer Sam Henry was in the legendary Wipers - Jenny Don't & the Spurs are more fun than you can have even with your chaps on and they're gonna tear the house down every time.

Achieving his first chart hit 'Really Free' in 1977 with Wild Willy Barrett, and viewed by millions in the summer holiday episode of The Young Ones, Otway's heroic career was documented in Steve Barker's 2013 feature film Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie. His ever-growing legion of fans literally gifted Otway his second hit 'Bunsen Burner' (which made it to number nine on the UK charts) as a present for his 50th birthday.
