leave with. I want peo­ple to leave with a feel­ing. My band and I are look­ing to use the live plat­form to be per­sonal and share an emo­tional ex­pe­ri­ence.

Will you be per­form­ing new mu­sic in New Zealand?

I’ll be per­form­ing mu­sic that cov­ers my en­tire cat­a­log. Although the mu­sic isn’t new, it’s been re­worked to feel new.

You’re play­ing in Queen­stown and Have­lock North as well as some main cen­tres. What is it about those towns that ap­peals as venues?

To be hon­est, we go where we’re booked. That ques­tion would bet­ter be asked by the venues that take on our shows. Of­ten times we’re in­tro­duced to cities due to be­ing brought there.

You once tweeted that Auck­land is home of your favourite cloth­ing brand and favourite cof­fee. Is that still the case?

Ab­so­lutely. I Love Ugly is still a brand I sup­port and New Zealand has some of the best baris­tas on earth.

What’s your favourite mem­ory of your time in New Zealand?

Tak­ing my fi­ance´ , now wife, to Piha beach for a walk around.

If you had one wish that would come true, what would it be?

To con­tinue mak­ing mu­sic for a liv­ing the rest of my life.

You can only have one al­bum on your de­vice. What is it?

Marvin Gaye — I Want You. I con­nect with that al­bum so much.

You’re cu­rat­ing a fes­ti­val with a dream line-up. Who’s on the bill, alive or dead?

The Roots, Tribe Called Quest, Bi­lal, Lit­tle Brother and Od­disee & Good Compny.
