Returning to New Zealand after a two year stint in Europe, award winning alt-folk artist Graeme James is delighted to be back in New Zealand for the winter of 2021 to reconnect with fans and share new songs and stories from the road.
Making the most of the European lockdowns of 2020 James used the break from his usually intense touring schedule to undertake his most ambitious recording project to date: four seasonal EPs exploring the emotional landscapes of Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer across 24 new songs
Released to critical acclaim, including a feature in Rolling Stone, this project culminates with the final EP release on July 30th. His captivating live show features Graeme playing electric violin, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, banjo, mandolin, harmonica and percussion as he recreates his foot stomping tunes in real time with his famous loop pedal.
With sold out shows across New Zealand and over 40 million streams on Spotify, Graeme is one of New Zealand’s most streamed indie folk artists. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see him play live in his home country.
"His records recall the work of fellow modern balladeers like Nathaniel Rateliff and Phoebe Bridgers." - David Browne, Rolling Stone (USA)
"Striking and evolved alternative folk" - Glide Magazine (The Netherlands)
“One of the most interesting songwriters on the current scene.” - Il Fatto Quotidiano (Italy)
