'Calm Me Down’ by BlackSandDiva

'Calm Me Down’ by BlackSandDiva


‘Calm Me Down’ is the infectious first single release from the BlackandDiva’s second album Rāwāhi. This track has a classic funk/soul feel withCat Tunks sweet, smokey voice. With a live band and Jazz influence, ‘Calm Me Down’ and in fact the whole Rāwāhi album is the perfect soundtrack for warm afternoon lounge gatherings and wintery road-trips.

BlackSandDiva is no ordinary NZ band and are definitely unique within the NZ music landscape. BlackSandDiva have travelled the world and wowed crowds through the Pacific and soon to head to Korea and Fiji, which is an annual trip for Cat and the band.

As well as warming the grassy dance-floors of NZ festivals such as The Waiheke Jazz Festival and Oratia Jungle Festival, BlackSandDiva have shared the billing with many of NZ's top acts.

With a strong vocal style that has seen lead singer Cat Tunks as a session vocalist across the globe, BlackSandDiva excel in their live set, which definitely brings a “hybrid soul, skank beats, and smooth jazz that falls into a backdrop of Tunks's seductive vocal style” (NZ Musician Magazine).
