Hollie Smith Touring the North Island With alae

Tuesday 5 April 2016

Hollie Smith released her greatly-anticipated third album Water Or Gold on April 1, and is currently touring the album nationwide.

After kicking off last week in the South Island with gigs in Twizel, Wanaka, and Christchurch; Hollie Smith is now joined by newcomers, alae, for the North Island leg of the tour.

alae is what you get when you mix Alex Farrell-Davey and Allister Meffan; two old high school mates who are talented musicians in their own right, but when they come together, it’s something else entirely.

They’re not sugar-coated or created in a lab - they got together because, for them, jamming together just feels right. And you'll feel that in everything you hear. alae’s debut single, All Gived Up, is out now - https://soundcloud.com/alaeofficial/all-gived-up

The Water Or Gold tour continues to Napier on April 7, Wellington April 8 and New Plymouth on April 9. The final week sees Whangarei on April 14, Auckland on April 15 and finishes up in Mount Maunganui on April 16.

Water Or Gold was produced by Smith and mixed in New York with Kiwi producer and engineer Aaron Nevezie. Nevezie has been based in the States since 1998 and has worked with the likes of The Black Keys and Danger Mouse.
