With the release of his much-anticipated sophomore album imminent, prolific singer, rapper and producer Travis Scott announces his debut New Zealand appearance at Auckland’s Powerstation on October 4.
Born and raised in Texas, Travis Scott (real name Jacques Webster) started making beats at sixteen, dropping out of college and moving to Los Angeles to pursue his music career in 2011. The following year, at just twenty years of age, Scott struck a record deal with Epic Records, and signed on to be an in-house producer for Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music soon after.
Introducing himself with two acclaimed mixtapes - Owl Pharaoh and Days Before Rodeo – Scott eventually released his full-length debut, Rodeo, in September 2015. Landing at #1 on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums Chart and #3 on the Billboard 200, Rodeo featured the likes of Future, Kanye West, The Weeknd, Toro y Moi, ScHoolboy Q, Justin Bieber and Young Thug.
With writing credits ranging from Rihanna’s 'Bitch Better Have My Money' and Madonna’s 'Illuminati' to Drake’s 'Company' and Big Sean’s 'First Quarter Freestyle', Scott also remains one of music’s most in-demand producers. From his work on Kanye West’s Yeezus to Jay Z’s Magna Carter Holy Grail, the Texan’s flair and ingenuity is omnipresent.

Over the last week there have been lots of discussion surrounding the unfortunate events at last weekend's Windhand/Cough show at Auckland's 'Kings Arms Tavern', and if there's one one thing to take away from it - it's that you should always be prepared for the worst, and have some form of plan for dealing with it.
LANY today announce details of their first New Zealand show to be held at Auckland's iconic music venue, The Powerstation on Wednesday 26th July.
