“Thomas’ soaring vocals are beautifully delicate with so much power it gives you goosebumps. There is no comparison from studio to live with such fantastic musicianship like this. The audience is well and truly enamoured by this live show and you can hear every bit of passion in every nuance sung by Thomas.
Engaging, dynamic and breathtaking all in one” - www.muzicnet.nz


Today’s just-announced shows follow last year’s sold-out NZ tour, with Oliver and his band looking forward to delivering some of his classic songs, alongside new, unreleased material.

An integral part of the New Zealand music scene, Oliver was awarded the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll in 2016 with his hit song ‘If I Move To Mars’, from his albumFLOATING IN THE DARKNESS, which debuted at #6 on the NZ Album Charts.

With million of views and streams across different platforms, the singer-songwriter has amassed an international audience from his home in New Zealand, and performs regularly on stages around the world. He’s toured and shared the stage with legends such as Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton and Fat Freddy’s Drop.

He is also recognised as one of the world’s leading players of the Weissenborn lap-steel guitar.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>
