Esther Stephens & The Means

Esther Stephens & The Means have been described as “a refreshingly seamless fusion of soul, funk, pop, jazz, psychedelia; basically just a beautiful celebration of beats, rhymes, & life.” – Dove Schwenke, Doves Diary.

The band has been building critical momentum on the NZ music scene in the lead up to their album release. They are part of the Red Bull Sound Select Young, Gifted & Broke roster alongside Team Dynamite and Third 3ye and have collaborated with local acts including Homebrew and Tama Waipara, and have supported international acts Olivier Daysoul (US), Apollo Brown (US), Oddisee (US), Flatbush Zombies (US), Panama (AUS), & Azizi Gibson (US).

“Mesmerising and almost hypnotising… the complementation of these magical musical forces is one that you have to experience.” – Rachael Watson, Groove & Marvel.


Drax Project

Drax Project have been loosely described as an alternative pop and hip hop four piece, however, what lane to place them in remains a matter of contention. That there are four of them is correct. Having built a cult following in Wellington through their dancefloor inducing live performances, they released their self-titled EP in mid 2014.

On the back of that EP, they are coming off a summer run that includes head turning sets at both Rhythm festivals, co-headlining Wellington’s biggest NYE show with Louis Baker, a 3500+ turnout for their solo show at Gardens Magic and, most recently, Homegrown. With new music, major collaborations, videos and shows throughout the country all in pipeline, 2015 looks likely to be a busy, albeit exciting year for band.
