Pacific Heights on Tour!

After a 5 year hiatus, Pacific Heights returns with an eagerly awaited second album In A Quiet Storm and national tour.

Pacific Heights is the solo project of Devin Abrams. Devin is a member of top New Zealand band Shapeshifter, and frequently tours Australasia as DJ Reno.

In A Quiet Storm is an exquisite album fusing nu soul and hip hop. Featuring some of New Zealand’s favourite vocalists - Joe Dukie, Pdigsss, Ladi6 and Lisa Tomlins, this album takes you on a deeply soulful journey. Devin also introduces the exciting new vocal talents of Christchurch’s Mara TK, jdubs, Aeries, Mark Vanilau and Sacha Vee.

Bringing this album to the live stage is a superstar line up of Aotearoa’s top soul artists. Abrams says “In A Quiet Storm has been three years in the making, I can’t wait to tour it throughout New Zealand with my great friends who feature on the album. It’s going to be a very special show”

In A Quiet Storm will be released on 18 August 2008
