New Zealand folk pop artist Graeme James is on the road to tour his debut album News From Nowhere. The first single off the record, Alive, has racked up over 200,000 plays on Spotify and is featured alongside 4 other tracks from the album on Aussie's hit drama 800 Words.
In celebration of the release of his first album of original tunes, Graeme James is heading out on tour with his unique folk/alt pop stylings.
Starting his career busking on the streets of New Zealand in 2012, Graeme James has built a large and loyal fan base with his captivating live show, performing with the aid of a loop pedal to layer violin, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, percussion, and beatboxing. Originally known for innovative versions of well known songs and his 'make it up as you go' attitude, Graeme has clocked up over 600 performances in recent years, earning him a well
deserved reputation as a genuine and dynamic live artist.
The tour will showcase the brand new News From Nowhere, an album that draws inspiration from the beauty and immensity of New Zealand's incredible landscapes. Intensely visual in both writing and the final sound, the 10 track album is rhythmic, heartfelt and joyous - a record that lends itself perfectly to being performed live.
Alive, Graeme's debut original song and the lead single from the album, was released in late 2015 and met with immediate interest. Selected for NZ on Air's 'New Hits Disc', rotating on The Edge Radio and TV, and picking up over 200,000 plays on Spotify, Alive has just been placed second in the Folk/Singer Songwriter category of the renowned international songwriting competition Unsigned Only. In addition to the success of the single, five of his songs have been selected for Spotify international playlists and another five from the record are featuring in the top rating Australian television drama series 800 Words.
Playing three Australian shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, this a tour not to be missed. Tickets go on sale September 16th at graemejamesmusic.com
