Dallas Tamaira

Bio

Stepping out of the rush in 2020, Dallas Tamaira presents No Flowers, his first solo release in over two decades.

Under the moniker of Joe Dukie, Dallas has risen to international acclaim as the velvet-smooth vocalist for Fat Freddy’s Drop. A true juggernaut, Fat Freddy’s Drop is recognised worldwide as one of the finest live draws.

The band’s tour across Europe and the UK came to a dramatic halt earlier this year, and upon his return to New Zealand, Dallas had to shift down a gear for self-isolation and lockdown. This was serendipitous for Dallas, a self-proclaimed introvert, who turned the potentially negative experience of lockdown into a positive and productive time. Dallas says that shifting to a slower and more peaceful pace of life and making slow music really made sense to him during this time.

With this release, Dallas makes a welcome return to his roots as a solo artist. Peaceful and slow, No Flowers is a timeless classic. The soulful rhythm and acoustic guitar reflect the aroha that Dallas has for the late Bill Withers, a musician who has deeply influenced his music.

The lyrics were sparked by an image from the 1960's, taken by Dutch-born photographer Ans Westra, whose journey brought her to Aotearoa in her late teens. “It all came from that photo,” Dallas says, describing Westra’s image of a mother holding her child, her hands dusted with flour. “In many ways, there’s a little bit of her in all New Zealand women. My mum can relate to holding a kid and making bread with floury hands.”

No Flowers is a deep and soulful dedication to the strong women in Dallas’ life. It’s a tribute to these powerful women who hold it down – always with grace – and welcome you at their table.

No Flowers is the first release, with more on the horizon.
