Trip Change Mayhem NZ Album Tour

Trip Change are a fresh new band from Taranaki, New Zealand, who write and perform original music – full of organic rhythm and soul. The band formed when Waru Waiwiri-Hetet (Lead vocals and lead guitar) and Ben Payne (drums) met while playing in various music projects in New Plymouth's busy entertainment scene. The connection between Hetet and Payne was instant, each recognizing the other’s talent and passion for music. A collaboration was inevitable and Trip Change was created. Hetet, Trip Change’s songwriter, lyricist and main creative force, spent time at the Wellington School of Jazz where he developed his skills as a shredding lead guitarist, before returning to Taranaki and playing with various blues and rock outfits. Payne’s background in music – working as a Tour Manager for KORA and a guitar tech/roadie with Kiwi legends KORA, L.A.B and Shihad – has helped to hone his skills as a drummer and drive a passion and love for a diverse range of music. He is no stranger to holding the beat in many colabs. The duo has recruited Keyboard player Matt Sagen and Bass Player Phil Hoskin to complete the line up. 

In early 2019, the two founding members of Trip Change began their collaboration and collection of songs started to form. Trip Change’s unique sound takes elements from soul, jazz, psychedelic, ska, reggae and rock music and embodies the search for new pockets of melody, the hunt for deep bass rhythms and arrangements which take the listener on an eclectic

Journey through soulful soundscapes. Trip Change are releasing their highly anticipated debut album ‘Lies & Lullabies’ May 2022

Waru Hetet, Ben Payne, Matt Sagen, Phil Hoskin
