Lauv will be hitting New Zealand for his debut show in March 2018

Breakthrough LA-based artist Lauv is about to set foot in our shores and embark his debut performance in Auckland's Powerstation to celebrate his chart-topping hit 'I Like Me Better' next fall.

Lauv is a an accomplished songwriter, with recent cuts as co-writer on Charli XCX's hit 'Boys' and 'Cheat Codes', 'No Promises' featuring Demi Lovato. He also features on DJ Snake's latest single 'A Different Way', which has already chalked up close to 20 million Spotify streams. The 23-year old singer is responsible for this year's breakout hit 'I Like Me Better', which has garnered close to 200 million Spotify streams and over 5 million YouTube views.

With 'I Like Me Better’, Lauv delivers an up-tempo track built on gracefully sculpted beats and a shimmering melody. Kiwi audiences, media and industry alike have embraced the song, peaking at no. 3 on the iTunes and Shazam charts. 'I Like Me Better' has attained Gold accreditation and is still climbing the charts with commercial radio airplay across the board on all major networks.

He's hit the Spotify Global Top 50 and Global Top 100 Artists with 'I Like Me Better' and is only just beginning. Supporting Ed Sheeran on the Asian leg of his world tour this spring, Lauv is one of the brightest young stars on the world music stage and you can bet he won't be playing such intimate venues for long!

Breaking into the music scene two years ago, Lauv's 2016 single 'The Other' surprisingly amassed over 88 million Spotify streams by early 2017. On the track, Lauv's unguarded honesty instils a slow-burning fusion of R&B and indie-pop which was taken to another level with his surprise global smash 'I Like Me Better'. His playlist 'I Met You When I Was 18' features a host of tracks including 'The Other', 'I Like Me Better' and the new song 'Easy Love' and will become the musical birthplace for new material over the coming months as Lauv invites fans into his world.

Music lovers, don't miss this remarkable star-in-the-making on his debut New Zealand visit.
