L.A.B.

Bio

The pedigree and musicianship of L.A.B. is undeniable.

L.A.B. was founded by the legendary Kora brothers Brad (drums) and Stu (guitar, keys) and quickly engaged the extraordinary talent of Joel Shadbolt on lead vocals & guitar and Ara Adams-Tamatea from the mighty Katchafire on bass.

The L.A.B. sound is one which has seen them quickly become a fan favourite on the New Zealand live circuit – trademark Kora grooves combining with Adams-Tamatea’s reggae/dub experience, and Shadbolt’s blues roots to create a sound entirely their own. Each member brings their own individual styles to the table, and the result is an eclectic mix of reggae, electronic, blues, funk, and reggae, even heading into country at points.

Since their inception L.A.B. have already performed at Homegrown, Bay Dreams and One Love Festivals, supported UB40 in NZ and supported Katchafire on their 24-date Australasian tour in 2016.

Written across Tauranga and Whakatane, recorded in Wellington and tested on the road across Australasia, L.A.B.’s self-titled debut album features 12 tracks which brilliantly showcase the multiple sides to the L.A.B. sound – a unique blend of soulful-rock and electronic-funk, punctuated by exceptional melodies that stick with the listener for days.

Band Members:
Brad Kora (drums, backing vocals)
Stu Kora (keyboards, guitar, backing vocals)
Joel Shadbolt (vocals, lead guitar)
Ara Adams-Tamatea (Bass)

ex-member: Rory Macartney (bass)
