Kina Grannis Announces Australian And New Zealand Shows

Kina Grannis Announces Australian And New Zealand Shows

Frontier Touring are pleased to welcome back Kina Grannis, the much loved Los Angeles-based indie songstress to Australia and New Zealand this July!

Grannis started gaining devout followers back in 2007 when she began broadcasting her talent to the world. She is now closing in on 1 million subscribers and 150 million views on Youtube; with the love only growing for the singer-songwriter who despite the growing popularity, endearingly holds onto her humble beginnings.

The release of ‘In Your Arms' (watch here) and its clever and quirky stop-motion video clip in 2011, involving 288,000+ jelly beans, catapulted the performer into international stardom. This, combined with her warm vocals and impeccable musicianship, saw Grannis’ featured on Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Grannis will be back to delight fans with her latest album Elements (out now through Liberator Music), featuring the stunning lead single ‘The Fire’ (watch the clip here) as well as latest track ‘Dear River’ (watch the clip here).

Teaming up with producer Matt Hales - the man behind talents such as Paloma Faith, Lianne La Havas and Alex Clare - Grannis is back to demonstrate her personal growth whilst staying true to her well-crafted songwriting and seamless harmonies.

Elements sees her music and production evolve to a commercial version of indie-pop: more mature and playing with harmonies and percussion. Grannis’ voice is sweet, but not syrupy, and there is just enough edge in the songs’ – The Music

‘With the immense success thanks to Stairwells, the question has begged to be asked by fans and foes alike: “How could Kina possibly go up from here?” Well, the answer is here, and it’s in the form of her latest full-length album Elements’, which dares to take the Californian singer/songwriter’s music to an ethereal place where it has never quite gone before’ – Yahoo! Voices 5/5

Kina Grannis’ 2012 Australian tour saw her play multiple sold out shows. With a new album in tow and her first ever New Zealand show, this time is expected to be no different - make sure you don’t miss out!
