Gig Information

Challenging, packed with hooklines and infectious grooves, itís easy to enjoy yet hard to pin down.

Playing the songs of writer and singer Steve Mitchell, the music is warm and welcoming but bristling with power and adventure.

The new single Heading North is a bittersweet slice of gritty alt-country rock, driven by itís infectious, spiralling chorus and follows on from the debut album Humankindness.

Humankindness have a fast-growing reputation as a formidable live band.

Lead guitarist Glynn Olsenís explosive jazz & blues style is the perfect counterpoint to Mitchellís soulful electric slide and abstract breaks. The fluid, inventive drums and bass of Bruce McGregor and Danny Sugar are the bandís powerplant beating heart. Keyboard player Paul Jeffries weaves through the sound with extra textures, melodies and vocals.

The songs set incisive lyrics to a unique and instinctive blend of rock, soul, blues, funk and singer-songwriter styles to create music that hooks you straight in.
