Tourettes

Bio

Dominic Hoey (aka Tourettes) is a poet, author, and musician based in Auckland.

Under the Tourettes moniker, Dominic has released four critically acclaimed studio albums, two books of poetry and performed around the globe. In a former life, he was an MC battle and slam-poetry champion. His writing has been published in everything from Vice (international) to New Zealand's leading literary journal, Landfall. He has performed his spoken-word poetry in Australia, Europe, England, Japan, and America. He's shared stages with the likes of Homebrew and Sam Hunt.

In 2012, Dominic was accepted into the N.E.S artists residency in Iceland, where he completed his first novel, Iceland, which is due for release later this year through Steele Roberts.

2014 saw Dominic release his second book of poems, Party Tricks and Boring Secrets, a collaboration with artist Joshua Solomon, and embark on a successful 12 date New Zealand tour to promote it with Australian singer/song writer Ben Salter. He performed two sell-out shows with Sam Hunt at Auckland's Golden Dawn and opened for him at that year’s Splore Festival. He was nominated for best script at the 48 hour film festival and his film Selfies and Poetries reached the finals. He recently wrote and co-directed a short film as part of the K Road stories festival.

In 2015, Dominic released the spoken-word song John Key’s Son's a DJ, a scathing critique on this country's leader. The song was a collaboration with Abraham Kunin from The Means and Abraham and Dominic are currently working on a new album entitled Feel Like Shit, Looking Great! due out later this year. He performed poetry at both Splore and Off the Radar festivals and was a judge at Poetry Idol at the Auckland Writers’ Festival.

This year Dominic completed a successful 21 date tour of New Zealand with local musician Will Wood and released two singles, No Losers @ Winz and The New New Zealand, from his upcoming album.
