Drax Project are heading home for two shows! The Wellington band, who have been taking their addictive blend of pop and live performance to the world, will play the Auckland Town Hall and the Christchurch Town Hall. They’ll be joined by talented Aussie-based Kiwi r’n’b electro duo, Fortunes and one of New Zealand’s most exciting new acts, singer and songwriter, Paige
 
Drax Project will be playing every song off their upcoming debut album, along with their regular live show favourites.  

In the space of a few years, Drax Project have gone from busking on the streets of Wellington, to selling out their own headline tours and opening for some of the biggest names in music-from Ed Sheeran, and Lorde, to Brian McKnight, Gorillaz Soundsystem, SBTRKT and Six60.

Having themselves been given an Auckland Town Hall support slot for Six60, it’s appropriate that Drax Project should invite up-and-comers Fortunes and Paige to open at their New Zealand shows.

Fortunes, who are signed with Future Classic (Flume), have established a strong following across Australia and New Zealand with their signature sound of electro pop, soul and r’n’b led by vocalist Conor McCabe and producer Barnaby Matthews. Their latest single, Disc Read Error was released at the end of March and has had close to 200k streams on Spotify. This follows on from their 2017 EP release, UNDRESS.

Endorsed personally by no other than pop icon Billie EilishPaige is the singer-songwriter from Auckland has quite literally won the world over with her self-filmed DIY videos. Combined, her singles So Far and Alignments have had 1.3 million streams on Spotify. She has also opened for international acts, such as George Ezra and Nina Nesbitt and featured on the song Slow Dive with Balu Brigada
 
Don’t miss out on the chance to see three of New Zealand’s most exciting young acts. Tickets to Drax Project’s NZ shows have often sold out in minutes, so get in quick!
