The Wellington band, who have been taking their addictive blend of pop and live performance to the world, come to Christchurch Town Hall on Friday, August 2.
Presented by Eccles Entertainment and ZM, Drax Project will be joined by talented Aussie-based Kiwi r’n’b electro duo, Fortunes and one of New Zealand’s most exciting new acts, singer and songwriter, Paige.
Drax Project will be playing every song off their upcoming debut album, along with their regular live show favourites.
In the space of a few years, Drax Project have gone from busking on the streets of Wellington, to selling out their own headline tours and opening for some of the biggest names in music - from Ed Sheeran, and Lorde, to Brian McKnight, Golliraz Soundsystem, SBTRTK and Six60.
Their surprise #1 radio hit - and NZ ‘Song of the Year’ - ‘Woke Up Late’ (UMG NZ) saw them sign global recording deals with Lyor Cohen's 300 and Simon Cowell's Syco labels. They went on to release an international version of the hit featuring Hailee Steinfeld, receiving Top 40 radio airplay all over the world - peaking at #26 in the US, currently sitting at #10 in Australia and climbing as high as #3 across 'international' stations in Hong Kong and Singapore. The song has now had more than 100 million streams.
