Drax Project will bring some of New Zealand’s hottest new acts along for the ride with special guests for the tour announced soon.
After a whirlwind few years, which has taken their music to the top of the charts and around the globe, Drax Project are without questions, one of the hottest tickets in music right now.
Their recently-released self-titled debut album has dominated the airwaves and Spotify, with smash hits such as ‘Woke Up Late’ feat Hailee Steinfeld, ‘Catching Feelings’ feat SIX60, ‘All This Time’ and ‘Toto’.
While studying jazz at college in Wellington, Drax Project – Shaan Singh – vocals and saxophone, Matt Beachen – drums, Sam Thomson – bass, and Ben O’Leary – guitar – took what they learned in class and applied it to another pursuit, making pop their own.
The group gained a following after re-working vocal hooks of famous pop songs into saxophone licks. Their cover of Kimbras’s track ‘Goldmine’ went viral and caught the attention of an influential producer, giving acclaim to the newly-introduced group.
Then band has performed across the globe supporting the likes of Ed Sheeran in New Zealand, Christina Aguilera on the European leg of The X Tour as well as standout performances at Rolling Stone’s Coachella party.
Drax Project are an unstoppable musical force and this is a tour not to be missed.
Drax Project will be playing an R-18 show at Soper Reserve, Mount Maunganui on Sunday January 5.
