Casual Healing

Bio

Nikau Te Huki is a unique composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist based in Poneke, Aotearoa - and his soulful solo project goes by the name of Casual Healing.

For over six years, Nikau has significantly influenced the music scene in Wellington. Establishing a vibrant hub for indigenous Roots, Rock, and Reggae through his band H4LF CAST. Notable performances have taken place at Gardens Magic, Tora Bombora, Nest Fest, and Twisted Frequency.

There’s something curious about this young Maori-Italian maestro. He holds a charming crooked smile and often appears in elaborate wardrobe, with an old nylon guitar over his shoulder looking like Elvis Marley, weaving a symphony of Roots, RnB, Reggae, Neo-soul, Indie, folklore and Rock. The entire Casual Healing discography has been produced by Nikau in his home studio, Te Whare CHuR. Thus we begin to explore the many talents of this man.

Casual Healing understands the power of music. As a true sonic missionary, Nikau is creating a soothing “golden-era sound” as part of his mission to heal with his music. Te Huki is a natural storyteller who inspires the listener by sharing his perspective of life through an authentic and relatable lens, drawing from a palette of raw emotions and painting a canvas woven from the tapestry of his unique life.

The songs of Casual Healing emphasise life lessons of aroha, peace and unity through powerful lyrical scribe woven into smooth reggae, soul rhythm. This infusion creates a unique nostalgic vibe, creating a captivating and comforting essence that evokes recollections of moments shared with friends and whanau. Casual Healing's goal is to create songs that “make people feel like they want to be better people”, drawing inspiration from Bob Marley, who showed us the power of compassion and simplicity.
