Gig Information

Australian songwriter James Kenyon is returning to Aotearoa this September for an 8 date tour that will include Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland. He'll be joined by New Zealand favourite and hardest working troubadour Monty Bevins.

Kenyon has built a strong following across NZ after consistently touring since 2015, on the back of his his highly praised album 'Imagine You Are Driving', released through Little Lake Records. In the last 18 months, Kenyon has completed a 10 date tour of the UK and Europe, a tour of New Zealand and 3 tours of Australia, including a 27 date single launch tour in November 2017.

As a composer, Kenyon most recently collaborated with Nick Huggins to create the soundtrack for Jackie Van Beek's New Zealand Feature film 'The Inland Road'.

“I love New Zealand, it's such a magic place, and people there seem to really relate to my music. Touring with Monty is a treat. He has worn a path up and down NZ and people have a lot of love for him. He’s a generous fellow and a great musician.”

“Kenyon is certainly not the most annoying Aussie I’ve had to deal with, and I quite like his music, which is a plus” added a typically dry Bevins.

What a great's not hyperbole to suggest he follows in the footsteps of Paul Kelly and Don Walker Paul Gough, The Inside Sleeve, ABC Radio National

“Exploring the creative potential of soundscape in songwriting, he places the listener in the landscapes he depicts with sensitive artistry. A meditative, authentic journey that is genuinely in tune with its subject.” Jessie Cunniffe, Sydney Morning Herald - Four Stars
