Lovers of softly crushing melodies and questing lyrics are in for a treat this coming March, as rapidly rising Los Angeles-based songwriter Meg Duffy aka Hand Habits will be in Aotearoa for a trio of live appearances. A former member of Kevin Morby's live band and musical contributor to records by The War on Drugs, Weyes Blood, and William Tyler, Duffy's solo project has attracted global attention with a rapid-fire run of releases including their 2019 album placeholder. Hand Habits will play a single Aotearoa headline event in the intimate surrounds of Tāmaki Makaurau's The Wine Cellar with support from Jazmine Mary, along with a sure to be sun-soaked performance at Pōneke's Newtown Festival and a support slot for Nadia Reid in Christchurch – note down the following details...

Press release:

Strange News and Banished Music are excited to announce a handful of very special New Zealand shows by Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Hand Habits.

Once, Meg Duffy (aka Hand Habits) would have been best known as the go-to session guitarist for the likes of War On Drugs, Kevin Morby, and Weyes Blood. Now, on the heels of their stunning album Placeholder, Meg is being mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Angel Olsen and Big Thief as a songwriting force to reckon with, and to be wrecked by.

Kicking off their solo tour in support of Nadia Reid in Christchurch, Meg will head to Wellington for Newtown Festival, and on to Auckland for an intimate performance at Wine Cellar with the fearsomely talented Jazmine Mary.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch a star on the rise in such intimate settings, tickets on sale now!
