The Leonard Charlse Group | Leonard Charles aka Jeremy Toy is a multi-instrumentalist and music producer from Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. The Leonard Charles Group is a psychedelic soul group that plays a back catalog of Leonard Charles music in an improvised manner drawing on influences from John Coltrane, J Dilla, Ebo Taylor, Santana, Jimi Hendrix and Parliament Funkadelic. 

Romi Wrights & The Commotions | Although she grew up on the sensibilities of US RnB and Hip-hop, when the Tokelauan singer-songwriter Romi Wrights shares her voice, it’s hard not to feel transported back to the spirit of the late 1960s soul/funk era by her incandescent melodies and stirring stories of love, loss and the confusion that lies in between.
