Tiki Taane is renowned as much for his powerful, headlining live performances as he is for the anthems he writes and produces.
Tiki’s extraordinary ability to rock the mic as both a gifted performance MC and/or a solo acoustic performer is something to be experienced firsthand.
Tiki’s self-produced debut solo release Past Present Future achieved double platinum sales and picked up a swag of NZ Music awards. His beautiful acoustic love ballad Always On My Mind rose to #1 and sat in the NZ charts for a record 55 weeks. In 2009 he released the remix album Flux and in 2011 the album In the World Of Light. In 2013 Tiki released his live album With Strings Attached, recorded with his band The Dub Soldiers, an 18-piece string orchestra. In 2019 the EP One Man Band highlighted his live and solo dub skills.
Although affectionately known as ‘King of the Dubs’, Tiki’s musical influences and appeal are broad, traversing from dubstep, reggae, drum n bass and hip-hop, to more contemporary pop/rock sensibilities. Touring Australia with Paora ‘P Digsss’ Apera, the vocal vanguard of beloved Kiwi band Shapeshifter, this is bound to be a high energy not-to-be-missed performance.
