KOTA The Friend Will Bring His 'FOTO' Tour To New Zealand In February 2020

14 October 2019 - 0 Comments

Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce that Brooklyn-bred, Manhattan-based MC KOTA The Friend will bring his FOTO Tour to New Zealand in February 2020. The latest flamespitter in a long lineage of MCs, KOTA will perform his debut headline show in Auckland, in celebration of his latest release FOTO (out now through Flight Boys).

FOTO marks the fourth project and debut album from multi-instrumentalist, producer and rapper KOTA The Friend. Each track embodies KOTA’s calm nature and veteran flow accentuated with a stunningly smooth soundscape. The 19-track album echoes the strong jazz, soul and hip-hop influences from KOTA’s youth growing up in the infamous 90's. The mellow vibes from each song are matched with lyrical heat; from breezy Bagels (Feat. Lizzy Ashliegh), bar heavy KOALA, light bangers Hollywood, Backyard to jewel Solar Return (Feat. Saba). The reflective project showcases the pages of KOTA’s life acting as a conceptual photo album.

FOTO follows from KOTA’s three EP’s; Palm Tree Liquor (2016), Paloma Beach (2017) and Anything (2018) which all delivered a string of impressive singles including Smile, Myrtle, Colorado and HER parts 1, 2 and 3. With previous projects wading through the fog of depression, FOTO presents an emerged artist who’s achieved mental clarity.

KOTA’s musical talent was evident at a young age. Classically trained on the trumpet and self-taught on the guitar, piano and bass, he progressed to produce his own music as well as videos from delving into the world of cinematography. Creating his own series Lyrics To Go KOTA’s commanding yet relaxed tone is met with insanely intimate visuals with lyrics from his rap displayed at the bottom.

An altruistic artist oozing organic, cool charisma, KOTA The Friend’s debut headline shows in February are not to be missed! Experience first -hand the natural energy KOTA brings to the stage with his jazz and soul-rooted stylings.
