In celebration of the release of his first album of original tunes, Graeme James is heading out on tour with his unique folk/alt-pop stylings.

Starting his career busking on the streets of Wellington in 2012 his captivating live show has been key to building a large and loyal fan base. Armed with a loop pedal he layers violin, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, percussion, and beatboxing. Originally known for innovative versions of well-known songs, and his ‘make it up as you go’ attitude, Graeme has clocked up over 600 performances in recent years earning him a well-deserved reputation as a genuine and dynamic live artist.

‘News From Nowhere’ is an album that draws inspiration from the beauty and immensity of New Zealand’s incredible landscapes. Intensely visual in both writing and the final sound, the 10 track album is rhythmic, heartfelt and joyous.

Graeme’s debut original song, and the lead single from the album, Alive was released in late 2015 and met with immediate interest. Selected for NZ on Air’s ‘New Hits Disc’, rotating on The Edge Radio and TV, and picking up over 130,000 plays on Spotify, Alive has also been named as a finalist in the international songwriting competition Unsigned Only. In addition to the success of the single, four songs from the record including Alive and the second single One+One have been featured in the top rating Australian television drama series 800 Words.
Criss-crossing NZ and Australia from September through November the ‘News from Nowhere’ Tour will be the first opportunity for fans to experience a show primarily of Graeme’s original material.

Door sales if spaces are still available. Doors are at 9pm, concert starts at 10pm.
