Three Houses Down


Over the past decade, Three Houses Down have established themselves as one of New Zealand’s musical exports. With tours and success all over the world, along with a dedicated following at home, 2016 will see Three Houses Down release what is poised to be one of NZ’s finest reggae releases to date.

Three Houses Down was born in 2004 after brothers Rob, Sione and Charlie Pome’e left their previous band based three houses up the road from their parents’ home. While the previous ten years has seen several line-up changes, the driving force behind their desire to live their dreams has remained the same – family. “To be honest that is the secret to our band, a strong family foundation. It brings us back to ground level.”

The band’s style – a combination of their love for classical reggae and their Polynesian roots – has been crafted over countless live shows, and was put on display with their first two albums, Dreadtown (2007) and Breakout (2009). Both albums were huge successes both at home and abroad, with multiple Pacific Music Awards to their name, along with huge tours throughout Hawai’i and the United States.

Live, Three Houses Down are a true force. The 10-piece band showcases not only an incredible brass section, but also shows Three Houses Down are not just another reggae band. Through years of choral training and singing, the brothers have stunning voices, accentuating the band’s blend of reggae, roots and rock with their classical sensibilities.

Their third album due in mid-2016, will see the band push their sensibilities further, crafting a sound which is a combination of the Jamaican reggae sound and their Polynesian roots. With a portion of the recording taking place at the iconic Tuff Gong Studios in Jamaica, the album will be a first of its kind in New Zealand, representing a true merging of two cultures. Singles Run Away and I Need A Woman have already given fans their first taste of what will be a truly special release.
