NEWS: Acoustic Church Tour 2012: Anika Moa, Boh Runga & Hollie SmithThursday , 26 Jul 2012
This year’s 2012 Classic Hits Acoustic Church Tour presents an exciting collaboration of three of New Zealand’s most talented and versatile female singer/songwriters: Anika Moa, Boh Runga & Hollie Smith: Together in Concert for the first time ever.
The talented trio and good friends have spent the last few months writing and recording together and have just released their first single to radio - Be Mine, a sticks-in-your-head pop gem that showcases their songwriting talents and their inimitable voices singing in harmony. Be Mine is the first single from what will be the debut album for Anika, Boh & Hollie, expected to be released early in 2013.
On tour, they will be performing a selection of their extensive back catalogues of hits – on stage together throughout the whole show – as well as new material from the upcoming album, all arranged specifically for the unique church venues.
Says Boh, "I've had the best time writing with Hollie and Anika. They are so freaking talented and getting to be part of their creative process is what being a musician is all about. Vibe- ing off of each other, laughing, learning our strengths and dynamics in our relationship, brilliant fun. To tour and explore the country with them will be the icing on the cake."
Anika Moa is equally enthused about the Tour:
“Doing what I love everyday is an amazing feeling, now I get to tour with two other brilliant, beautiful and amazing singer/songwriters too. I've looked up to Boh since I first became a muso and I've known Hollie a long time and sometimes wish I could have her voice as mine! This is going to be so fun cos were all so zany!”
The Classic Hits Acoustic Church Tour is a show in two halves. The first half will feature only the three artists in a more acoustic format, and in the second half, Anika, Boh & Hollie will be joined by their band members.
