Mini Simmons

Bio

Mini Simmons is an Auckland based Rock n Roll band dreamed up on the Pacific Highways of Mexico in 2017.

Over the past two years, the band have established themselves firmly as one of the premier live acts in the NZ music scene, gracing the stages of Rhythm & Vines, Splore, Soundsplash and Nest Fest. They were a guest performer of Benee’s Soaked at the 2019 APRA Silver Scrolls, have been booked as the support act for The Darkness, and have headlined their own successful tours of Australia & New Zealand.

2019 saw Mini Simmons release their debut, self-titled Album to critical acclaim, with internationally renowned Classic Rock Magazine praising the "sunkissed bath of gorgeous harmonies" on their lead single A Way With Murder. The band's debut album was the first to be pressed to vinyl in NZ for over 30 years, selling out the first press of 150 copies in under a week.

After 6 sold out dates across New Zealand in support of their most recent single, Mini Simmons are back with a refined sound and a prolific arsenal of new material. Railroad For Two, the second single off their Sophomore project is due for release in November.

Band Members:
Zak Hawkins (vocals)
Brad Craig (guitar)
Jesse Hawkins (bass)
Yoni Yahel (drums)
Emily Mackie (keyboards)

  • Silver Cigarette Case

    Silver Cigarette Case is the first single from Mini Simmons sophomore album. It pokes fun at the sheep-like nature of trends, using throwaway pop-culture references from the 90s/00s era. The song illustrates a marked progression in stylistic experimentation for the band, including the use of backwards recording, strings, elevation of the organ and a female vocal. Notable influences in the writing and recording of the track span from Brian Jonestown Massacre and Lou Reed, to The Beatles ‘Revolver’ and Iggy Pop’s ‘Lust For Life’.
