It's no coincidence that 2011 has been their busiest year. In the midst of recording their debut album Zion Hill have maintained a full gig schedule serving up a unique fusion of Roots, Reggae and Rock across Auckland, Raglan and Hamilton while growing their loyal fan base. The gigs have helped to generate funds for valuable time in the recording studio and it's fair to say that the band, both recorded and live, has never sounded better. With their Debut Album out now, Zionhill have received rave reviews by music critics here and abroad.

The band hail from Raglan on the majestic West Coast of New Zealand’s North Island. Formed in 2007 Zion Hill is made up of co-founding members Bass Player Damian Hepi-Te Huia; Lead Guitarist & Guitar Synth Maestro Shai Rudolph alongside Lead vocalist Gavin Demsey; Drummer/Percussionist Jesse Bates with the more recent addition of Vocalist/Percussionist Ardre Foote. Their style has been described as ‘Roots Rock’ or the more abstract ‘Consious Dub Fusion’ but the band are quick to point out they are not keen to be pigeon-holed into any genre. This is where the strength of this band is obvious, with each member bringing a wide variety of musical influences into the mix to create something distinct and unique.

The band’s greatest reward comes from their live performances. “We like to make a connection when playing live,” says Bass Player Damian Hepi-Te Huia “Our songs are conscious, about life, the environment and what’s happening here in Aotearoa and the world today.” With that in mind the band are looking forward to getting on the road in coming months , helping to write the soundtrack for the upcoming summer across New Zealand.
