Holly Arrowsmith -

Born in the heart of the American desert, in Santa Fe, New Mexico and raised in the mountains of Southern New Zealand, Holly Arrowsmith is a strong forerunner in New Zealand’s current folk revivalist movement.

With sound comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Gillian Welch and Nick Drake, Holly touches upon the earnest matters of life, wrapped in metaphors of nature and the soothing mountain environment that raised her.

'A Dawn I Remember' Arrowsmith's second full length album was crowdfunded and released June 22nd 2018. Recorded between a cottage in the coastal town of Colac Bay and The Sitting Room recording studio in Lyttelton, New Zealand with renowned producer Ben Edwards.

Arrowsmith's first album 'For The Weary Traveller' received the VNZMA Tui Award for 'Best Folk Album of 2016', and with it she supported Sixto Rodrigues, Jessica Pratt, Tiny Ruins, Nadia Reid, Willie Watson and toured with Fly My Pretties.

Alae -

Comprised of multi-instrumentalists Alex Farrell-Davey and Allister Meffan, drummer Jayden Lee and bassist Marika Hodgson, emerging New Zealand band Alae are poised to take their sophisticated brand of indie pop to the world.

Capping off a stellar 2017, the band’s freshly released single “Too Strung Up” was premiered on November 9 by Rolling Stone Australia and launched straight into Spotify’s prestigious New Music Friday playlist in New Zealand, Australia and the United States where followers number over 2.3 million.

Fast forward to 2018, Alae's album Henry Street arrived on October 26th, where they celebrated by jumping straight in to a New Zealand wide tour. Henry St hit number two on the iTunes album charts, number one on the iTunes alternative album charts, and number five on the New Zealand album charts.

Over Summer, Alae busied themselves with summer festivals from the River Sounds Festival to most recently the prestigious Homegrown 2019. They have also been on tour with the John Butler Trio and L.A.B performing across New Zealand's idyllic outdoor locations after locking in a high profile support slot.
