Fresh off the back from his newest single release No Place Like Home in February 2016, New Zealand artist Tiki Taane has just announced a 14-day Australian tour to promote his latest material. Set to be the artist’s biggest and most ambitious tour of Australia as a solo artist yet, the tour will kickstart in Sydney October 14th and run through to November 5th.
Tiki Taane’s latest single No Place Like Home was released early February in the wake of an anti-TPPA protest and Waitangi Day to celebrate his hometown, New Zealand. Launching to a small but selected group in the Bay of Plenty, artist and producer Tiki Taane’s song showcases an appreciation of the county that matters most to him.
The track, which was written to remind us all to appreciate our home, land, sea and people within “because that’s where the true spirit and power of this country lies” features hip-hop soul artist Ria Hall & friends. Raising money from the song download, Taane has been giving all proceeds to a non-profit Tauranga charity called Good Neighbour.
Stepping out as a solo artist from New Zealand’s leading band Salmonella Dub in 2007, Tiki Taane has established himself as an exceptional musician and producer since. Touring as a solo artist around both Australia and New Zealand, Taane is renowned for bringing a vibrant energy to the stage that is both infectious and inviting.
“Expect this solo tour to be live and on the spot creation and experimentation of all music using an acoustic guitar, vocals, samples and loops. Every show is different and challenging as a performance, which is why I really love doing the solo thing”, says Taane.
