Nux Vomica - Live in concert
In Autumn 2021, The Veils present the first ever live performance of their legendary sophomore album Nux Vomica in its ferocious entirety.
The album was originally recorded in Los Angeles with producer Nick Launay (PiL, Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and has acquired iconic status since its release on Rough Trade Records in 2006.
Audiences across New Zealand will be treated to live renditions of the singles Advice For Young Mothers To Be, Calliope & One Night on Earth as well as the title track Nux Vomica (used to great effect by Italian film director Paulo Sorrentino in his early masterpiece Il Divo) and the cataclysmic, roof-raising Jesus For the Jugular.
Celebrating the release of his sophomore album 'Brunch', Jed Parsons is bringing his stripped back and intimate show to Sherwood, featuring songs from both his latest effort and 2018 Debut Release of the Year finalist 'Midnight Feast'.
Featuring special guest GOODWILL (formally of nomad, last appearing at Sherwood supporting Dave Dobbyn), the duo will put on a a showcase of hook-laden, often eccentric songwriting and sublime vocal harmony.
'Brunch' has been a hit with listeners, critics and and many publications including Rolling Stone Magazine. RNZ calls the closing track Breathe one of the best songs of the year while claiming nobody is writing catchier choruses in Aotearoa right now.

WHAT THE PRESS SAY
“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary Herald, CANADA
“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in their thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper.” The Firefly Column, USA
“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.” The Indie Blender, CANADA
“reinventing roots guitar” - Rhythms Magazine, AUSTRALIA
“Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.” BW Review, NEW ZEALAND
‘Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical’ Themusic.com.au, AUSTRALIA See Less
It's been a year since Jeremy Redmore released his acclaimed comeback album The Brightest Flame. It was a release cut short by Covid's varying symptoms, but the season is now right to take these cinematic songs and their embedded stories to audiences across Aotearoa.
Winter 2021 presents itself as the perfect scene for a set of songs that were conceived while Redmore was living in Toronto in the midst of snow-piled pavements, breathless cold and a collapse of the world as he knew it.
What emerged from that time was an album universally praised by critics for its emotive strength and sonic complexity and a surprising departure from his previous solo album and work as the writer and frontman for Midnight Youth.
"Redmore’s writing here is as lucid as ever, and he hasn’t lost his ear for melody, but this is much more introspective slow-burn than stadium stomp," Matt McAuley wrote for The Spinoff.
"The multi-tracked vocals and oscillating synths of early album standout ‘So Easy (II)’ recall the work of Canadian indie legends Wolf Parade, while the red-eyed balladry of songs like ‘Goodbye’ and ‘Southern Lights’ split the difference between early Bon Iver and late Walkmen to powerful effect."
Redmore says fans can expect not only songs from The Brightest Flame, but also from his complete catalogue, including unheard interpretations of Midnight Youth hits.
With the tour kicking off in June, Redmore will be joined by a full backing band and will announce some incredibly talented support acts very soon. Tickets available via Under The Radar.
