Troy Kingi, musician and actor, has had an eventful few years with major roles in Hunt For The Wilderpeople, Mt Zion, Pa Boys, Songs from the Inside Season 3 and The Kick.
At the same time his musical projects have also had success - working with Maori artists Stan Walker (who he co-wrote the Silver Scroll winning song Aotearoa with), Rob Ruha, Maisey Rika, Ria Hall and now more recently in a collaborative soul band with Mara TK(Electric Wire Hustle) and Mark Vanilau
Now follows his concept album 'Guitar Party at Uncles Bach'. Recorded in Lyttelton by engineer Ben Edwards, the whole vibe was to record the album live circa Motown/Beatles .
"Sequencing tracks, cutting and pasting these perfect drum loops, cleaning up our recorded imperfections, I feel you lose the human element of the song, you lose the vibe and feel that used to be so strong in 70s soul music" - Troy Kingi.
This is a 22 song double album recorded in just under 7 days on that sweet sunny hill in Christchurch. It's peppered with sneaky dubbed audio from a New Years party on Troy's deck - ranging from dirty blues rock to seething soul, 'Guitar Party at Uncles Bach' ready to punch some eardrums.
