Press release:

Steve Gunn makes his glorious return to New Zealand, his first since the release of Other You, his brilliant sixth studio album released last year by Matador. A regular visitor to New Zealand, the New York-based guitarist and songwriter will play three solo shows across the country this October marking his fourth visit to our shores. His previous three tours have included headline shows across both islands, performances alongside The Chills, and a festival performance at the Southern Fork Americana fest. His last time here in 2019 was to tour his critically acclaimed fourth album The Unseen In Between.

With a career spanning nearly fifteen years, Gunn has produced volumes of critically acclaimed solo, duo, and ensemble recordings, steadily processing his inspirations into a singular, virtuosic stream. Close listening reveals the influence of blues, folk, ecstatic free jazz, and psych in his continually unfolding output.
