Drax Project will be supporting R&B sensation Brian McKnight and his full live band on both New Zealand concerts!
Drax Project began as the late night drums and sax busking duo of Jazz students Shaan Singh and Matt Beachen. Their pop, hip hop and classic R&B sessions on Courtney Place in Wellington would regularly evolve into impromptu street parties, with crowds of several hundred stopping to dance. Adding fellow music students Sam Thomson on bass and Ben O'Leary on guitar, they quickly moved from being a Wellington street favourite, to being one of the city's favourite club acts. This strong local buzz saw them offered sets at some of the major festivals and begin to tour the country.
Upon graduating in 2015, they signed to Universal Music Group, releasing their well-received first EP for the label 'T/W/OO' in April 2016. After spending the winter in the warmth of a studio, they released the new single 'Falling Out of Sight'. With several more singles scheduled, a major run of festivals and a summer tour all in the pipeline, you can expect to hear a lot more of Drax Project's R&B infused pop over the coming months.
