Raylee Bradfield: The Wildflowers Tour w/ Jocee Tuck

Fresh from the release of her debut album “Where Wildflowers Grow”, Raylee is heading out on tour with Jocee Tuck.

Raylee Bradfield is a name known to many musicians who’ve sought out her vocal coaching expertise and guidance towards developing their craft. But turning that energy inwards in this season, she’s quietly become one of the best-kept secrets of Auckland’s alt-country scene, flooring audiences with her classic country songwriting and heartworn voice. For fans of Gillian Welch and Patty Griffin, Bradfield’s songs stay with you - haunting, lonesome and powerful.


Alongside Bradfield is Jocee Tuck - xylophone enthusiast, chamber-pop wizard and long-time friend and vocal student of Bradfield’s. Previously seen performing at the Silver Scrolls Awards, opening for Andrew Bird, and playing up and down the country with indie pop act Bear Cat - In recent years Jocee Tuck has released her debut album Mount Dora. With a maximalist vision that combines Sufjan Stevens-esque fanfare, doo-wop harmony and alt-country wistfulness - her performances with concert xylophone and ensemble are a unique spectacle that has critics and fans spellbound.


These two unique voices are not to be missed playing alongside each other up and down the country.


Tickets from www.undertheradar.co.nz for $15.
Door sales $20
Doors will open at 7pm

Jarni Blair 'Sparkle in My Eye' EP release - Tickets from UTR

Jarni is excited to return to his hometown with a full band to play a special show at Dog With Two Tails promoting his latest EP 'Sparkle In My Eye'.

With support from the brilliant Loose & Colourful, this is sure to be an awesome night of world class music and performance.

Jarni's latest EP is a beautiful six song record where Jarni raises the curtain on his life and articulates true stories of love, addiction and soul seeking. Jarni firmly believes in the power of vulnerability and the way it can provide a stable bridge of connection between him and the audience.

His guitar playing is certainly the biggest highlight, with people often looking confused in amazement at his fretboard work and how he literally sends people into another dimension, and invites them into a music world they never thought existed.

Come on down with a crew and check what all the fuss is about, there will be plenty of MERCHANDISE available to! :)
