Gig Information

Celebrating 20 years as one of NZ\\\'s most influential musical groups, TrinityRoots are set to play a number of special shows. These not-to be repeated shows will see TrinityRoots perform their classic album True in its entirety for the first time.

Special guests Lisa Tomlins and Stephanie Paris (vocals), Jonathan Crayford (piano/synths), David Long (multi-instrumentalist) and an accompanying string section will help bring the classic album to life.


“That record encapsulated everything that TrinityRoots was as a band at that time,” says Maxwell. “Musically we were exploring our collective jazz, roots and blues influences and also weaving in some New Zealand ‘flavours\\\'. But we were also discovering our own individual traits, dynamics and personalities, of which were all imprinted into that record.

It’s all pretty honest - which I think a lot of people really appreciated. It’s going to be an experience of aroha to perform the album with all of these beautiful people again and share that with our fans.”

Originally released in 2002, the story behind True became the stuff of local legend. Initially planned to be recorded over a three week period in Central Hawke’s Bay, the final tally was three different locations over nine months. The first sessions took place in Oruawharu, a large farm station house in Takapau. This setting perfectly encapsulated the essence of TrinityRoots –the acoustic flavours of Maori party songs sung around the fireplace to the roots of soul, jazz & blues. The album was completed in Wellington with Dr Lee Prebble and helped birth the now legendary Surgery Studios.

Featuring iconic songs such as ‘Little Things’ & ‘Beautiful People’, these shows will see TrinityRoots performing True in its entirety for the first time. Special guest musicians and vocalists will help bring this classic album to life.
