Sea Mouse

Dates: Friday 28 February 8.30pm

Aquamarine marsupial blues infused rock band Sea Mouse have announced their upcoming album ‘Tropical Fish’ along with the news that they are hitting the road over the summer playing nine shows across Aotearoa, celebrating the unleashing of their record on the world.

The band’s freshly squeezed, slow grooving title track ‘Tropical Fish’ makes clear what all the fuss is about, celebrating Sea Mouse’s gritty and psychedelia infused take on garage rock, and celebrating the unrelenting vigour with which vocalist and front man Seamus Johnson writes.

Sea Mouse deliver a punch packing, viciously high energy live show, and a brilliant
translation of the record from turntable to stage. The new 11 track record ‘Tropical Fish’,
(also featuring window shattering crowd favourite ‘Rutherfords’) is the band’s first full
release since 2017 and is coming live to a town near you this summer.

DANIEL CHAMPAGNE - The young Australian singer-songwriter and one of a kind virtuoso brings his world tour back home with new music!

Tickets online or $20 cash at Aviary

Daniel has released four studio albums, and tours relentlessly around the
globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, playing some of the biggest festivals under the sun, and sharing stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for
dropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes.

WHAT THE PRESS SAY..
“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he
coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary
Herald, CANADA

“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in the thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show- stopper.” The Firefly Column, USA

“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.”
