It’s fitting then, that a band hailing from Raglan on the majestic west coast of New Zealand's Northern Isle, should adopt such sensibilities. Zionhill is the country's latest offering to the international world of music. A conscious yet vibrant, home-grown roots band.
Formed in late 2007, and gaining momentum ever since - Zionhill is made up of co-founding members, bass player Damian Hepi-Te Huia; leading guitarist and guitar synthe maestro Shailah Rudolph; alongside front man Gavin Dempsey, formerly of early 90's hard rock Hamilton group, Blackjack. In 2009 the band introduced drummer Jesse Bates directly from Australia. 2011 saw the talented & beautiful , Ardre Foote complete the line up.

Fellow musicians, DJ's and those in the know would define Zionhill's music as 'Conscious Dub Fusion' or 'Roots Rock' but the band are quick to point out that they are not that keen to be simply pigeon-holed as just another 'New Zealand Dub' outfit. Although their influences range vastly, they have a sound distinctly their own and celebrate that through their music, especially their live performances. They have a love for that special experience of playing in front of a crowd, "We like to make a connection when playing live" says Damian "Our songs are conscious, about life, the environment and what's happening here in Aotearoa (Maori for Land of the Long White Cloud) and the World today."

Zionhill have plenty of plans for the future, keep tabs on the band and make sure you remain part of the action. Zionhill are here to stay.
