Gig Information


Debuting at number 1 on the New Zealand Itunes album charts, Zimbabwean born, New Zealand raised producer and singer-songwriter FELIX THE THYRD released his anticipated sophomore EP '808s & Heartstrings' on August 8th 2017.

Having only begun music production in 2016, Felix has already caught the attention of MTV Australia/ NZ, AFROPUNK, AUD'$, Mai Fm and NZ Musician Magazine. His music is future R&B punctuated by pop, dance, electronic, hip hop and psychedelia. “FELIX THE THYRD‘s diverse sound is one that truly transcends genres and boundaries” - Off The Clef.

Spanning five tracks, ‘808’s & Heartstrings’ is an eclectic mix of genres Felix terms “cin- ematic trap”. The name of the EP is inspired by Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreaks - “I wanted to create something unique, immersive, resonant and to make a statement not only as a singer- songwriter but as a producer/ engineer”. The music you’ll hear on ‘808s & Heartstrings’ is inspired by Sevdaliza, Hans Zimmer, THEY., The Weeknd, Corbin and Bobby Raps.

Without a management team or record label to support his music, Felix has had to think creatively and put in hundreds of hours of research to stay competitive in an industry where doing it alone is almost near impossible. In a live setting you'll be enthralled in a rollercoaster of emotive lyrics, unorthodox beats and a commanding voice.
