Dreamers" from Catherine Tunks.
(Māori singer - Te Whānau-A Apanui/Whakatohea)
Catherine Tunks is an Aotearoa singer/songwriter/musician, a Waiata Māori music awards nominee and this is Part One of her 3 part international project. She has travelled the globe and released 2 acclaimed albums but this “The Beautiful Dreamers” E.P. is is truly personal, full of heart and raw emotion.
Although Catherine Tunks is well known as her Black Sand Diva persona, she is gently leaving this behind with the "The Beautiful Dreamers" releases to create and explore new musical boundaries. As well as gracing the stages at an impressive list of international festivals, she is always in the process of exciting collaborative projects, just like this.
In these releases she is connecting deeper into her heritage and country church upbringing. Drawing on her Irish and NZ Māori lineage gives her that undeniable South Pacific groove and now, she weaves in the new threads of Americana sound.
Forming a songwriting partnership with German musician Thomas Koenig (Solid Brew) after a chance meeting at Auckland’s Waiheke Jazz Festival in 2015, was the beginning of this cross cultural music exchange which will continue into 2017 with a NZ and German Tour. (MORE)
