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!

Scoop Review Of Books: From Here And There

Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story
by Helene Wong.
This is the fascinating story of Helene Wong, born in 1949 in Taihape to Chinese parents: her mother, born soon after her parents migrated here, and her father, born in China but sent to relatives in Taihape at seven to get an education in English. More>>

Chiku: Hamilton Zoo's Baby Chimpanzee Named

Game Over: Trans-Tasman Netball League To Discontinue

Netball Australia and Netball New Zealand have confirmed that the existing ANZ Championship format will discontinue after the current 2016 season, with both organisations to form national netball leagues in their respective countries. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.

Scoop Review Of Books: Tauranga Books Festival

Escape to Tauranga for Queen’s Birthday weekend and an ideas and books-focused festival that includes performance, discussion, story-telling, workshops and an Italian-theme morning tea. More>>
