From humble beginnings performing at Dunedin parties to playing alongside some of the world's most revered artists - Summer Thieves have rightfully earned their spot as one of Aotearoa’s most prized up and comers.

Singer and guitarist Jake Barton and drummer Johnny Ward began playing together in high school at the age of 15. Fast forward to 2011, they joined forces with Adam Spencer (bass) and consequently formed Summer Thieves. Starting at Dunedin Scarfie parties and covers gigs, they quickly became a crowd favourite and it wasn’t long before they started amassing a legion of dedicated fans nationwide. Since forming, Summer Thieves have expanded to a five-piece line-up recruiting Izzy Bones (keys and guitar) and Jarni Blair (lead guitar).

Summer Thieves teamed up with multi-award-winning producer and artist Tiki Taane for their debut album, Warped. Together they created a 12-track journey laced with catchy hooks and toe-tapping, head-bobbing rhythms. In 2017 Warped was released into the world and a slew of festival shows and sold-out tours ensued. The boys cemented themselves as a must-see within the New Zealand festival and gig circuit with repeat performances at Rhythm & Vines, Bay Dreams, Rhythm & Alps and Raglan’s Soundsplash, and it doesn’t end there! They’ve opened for hip-hop royalty Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Hermitude, Australia’s Sticky Fingers, Peking Duk, and Ocean Alley as well as local heavyweights Six60, Katchafire and Sons Of Zion.
