Troy Kingi

Troy Kingi

Described by the NZ Music Commission as “our Northland treasure”, the Bay of Islands-based musician/actor Troy Kingi has embarked on an eventful few years with major acting roles in Hunt For The Wilderpeople, Pa Boys, Mt Zion and The Kick, while also enjoying a successful music career, being nominated for an APRA Silver Scroll, earning Vodafone Music Awards for Best NZ Soul Artist and Best Māori Artist in 2018 as well as rave reviews for his side-project, collaborative soul band L(())VE & HOPE with Mara TK and Mark Vanilau.

Kingi released his third album Holy Colony Burning Acres in 2019 – a hard hitting early roots record that focuses on major issues facing indigenous peoples all around the world – thematically be a stark contrast to his multi-award-winning sophomore offering, Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron, which was a nod to the funkadelic-soul sounds of the seventies while he explored sci- themes through galactic storytelling.
