Gig Information

His first time back since his debut Auckland show at Auckland City Limits Festival, Jed Parsons brings his band back up for an intimate show at Wine Cellar, joining forces with Gareth Thomas's band.

He’s a familiar face and an accomplished multi-instrumentalist who has loaned his talents to many a band over the years. Now Jed Parsons is taking centre stage.

With his debut solo album on the horizon, the Christchurch-based artist has just revealed a taste of what’s to come, with his debut single ‘Get Lost’.

A blend of dreamy melodies, infectious hooks and clever songwriting, ‘Get Lost’ is the perfect introduction to Parsons’ unique concoction of indie-pop; a culmination of his rich and varied background as a touring musician, which has taken him around the world and into the studio with various projects including nomad, Pacific Heights, Mel Parsons, Odyssey and Allergic To Love.

Parsons, 25, is a consummate live performer, who has played in bands at countless festivals around the world and headlined tours. As a solo artist, his music balances eccentricity and energy with intimacy and musical sensitivity, maintaining a focus on catchy hooks and lyrical prowess. His songwriting is sculpted from his observations and analysis of a world he enjoys.

Growing up amongst his cyber-obsessed generation and a once earthquake-flattened city and culture, Parsons is able to shine a light on the silly, strange and interesting aspects of average life, in a society that seems happy to lock them away in its subconscious. He turns relatable topics of love, growing up, loss into musical magic.
