Rhian Sheehan is set to return with his first album in over five years, A Quiet Divide. To celebrate, he will be performing a special series of shows across New Zealand, transforming venues into spectacles of sound and light.

This cinematic experience will see Sheehan lead nine musicians plus a live string section to perform a truly sublime audio-visual show. Combining a dream-like montage of captivating live visuals with sound to turn Wellington into a world of breath-taking son et lumiere.

Each performance will see some of NZ’s finest musicians combining with visual elements created by Weta Workshop, Perceptual Engineering and a collective of talented visual artists to create a richly layered live experience.

Sheehan’s band features a selection of talented musicians including long-standing key collaborators Jeff Boyle (Jakob), Steve Bremner, Ed Zuccollo (Trinity Roots), Raashi Malik and Andy Hummel, plus Marika Hodgson (Hollie Smith), Grant Myhill, and Anna Edgington, alongside a live string section.

Sheehan will showcase the brand new album A Quiet Divide, as well as previous work from acclaimed albums Standing In Silence and Stories From Elsewhere. Sheehan’s live shows are a rare occasion, with this being the first Wellington performance since 2013.

“The concert is a truly “wish you were here” experience, where the audience is so mesmerised, you could hear a pin drop – before the
bursts of applause that signals the spell has been broken momentarily.” – Sunday Star Times

Acclaimed for both his original music and composition work, Sheehan’s latest album is a sublime marriage of orchestral chamber music, cinematic guitar, and synth-based soundscapes. Fusing this sound with post-rock and ambient/electronic moments, A Quiet Divide affirms Sheehan as NZ’s foremost voice in the ambient/post-rock genre.
