Armed with an acoustic guitar and a cheeky smile, Benny Tipene has become a firm Kiwi favourite since hitting the spotlight in 2013.

Proudly hailing from Palmerston North and now based in Auckland, the singer-songwriter hit No. 2 on NZ charts with his debut single ‘Walking on Water’ after placing third on TV3’s The X-Factor NZ.

Tipene’s debut EP Toulouse, featuring Gold hits ‘Make You Mine’ and ‘Lonely’, was nominated for Best Pop Album at the 2014 Vodafone NZ Music Awards.

His first album Bricks, with single ‘Step On Up’ achieved Gold status.

Tipene has recently returned from a trip to Europe and just completed an NZ tour with Avalanche City, he’s now working on material for this next album.

MAALA is emerging from obscure beginning to be a new artist truly worth hearing.

With a name chosen from a pile of random Scrabble letters, MAALA debuted on SoundCloud in March 2015 with "Touch” and the song’s aching minimal electro majesty quickly picked up listeners and interest on a global scale.

Auckland Council Music in Parks - 26 free outdoor gigs across the region this summer.
