Kingsley Spargo

Tour Information
Sound artist Kingsley Spargo’s broad sound palette both captivates and confronts his audience. Drawing across theatre, free improvised and contemporary music his most recent compositions include narratives of yearning and the geometry of life. This Napier man is no stranger to the stage, he has delighted audiences alongside Don McGlashan, SJD, Eve de Castro Robinson, Tim Finn, Violent Femmes and Witi Ihimaera.

Poet Kim Meredith shouts of epochs in the 21st century, the daughter of a failed migrant farmer with Hollywood dreams manifesting in popcorn love, she calls on her ancestors to bring her complex modern tales to the stage.

Ever the musical anarchist, bass man Chris Orange’s pedigree spans the golden era of ‘70’s Auckland punk (Terrorways, The Features) to free jazz in Japan, and here he adds texture, colour and a sense of lightness to the heavy themes of a 21st century conversation.

This performance celebrates recent release of collection of songs 'Chasing Spirits' and features special guest poet Kim Meredith as well as:
Kingsley Spargo vocals, guitar, trumpet, pūmoana
Chris Orange double bass, vocals
