Music News - High flying UK-based Kiwi Molly Payton returns for NZ shows

High flying UK-based Kiwi Molly Payton returns for NZ shows

15 January 2020 - 0 Comments

Plus1 in association with UK agency Primary Talent is proud to announce Auckland and Wellington shows for Molly Payton – the London based 18-year-old New Zealand indie singer-songwriter whose career is on a rapid rise. Molly Payton will perform these two summer NZ dates:

Saturday 15 February 2020 - Meow, Wellington
Sunday 16 February 2020 - Wine Cellar, Auckland

Tickets go on sale 11am today (Wednesday 15 January) at UnderTheRadar.co.nz

These shows are hot on the heels of Molly’s busy Northern Hemisphere summer, performing at UK festivals like The Great Escape, Green Man, and Neighbourhood, as well as her own headline and collaborative dates.

New Zealand young songwriter initiative Play It Strange helped play a part in nurturing Molly’s initial talent, and CEO Mike Chunn (Split Enz, Citizen Band) is delighted she’s already making a mark in London, where she moved two years ago.

Through this Mike Chunn & Play It Strange connection, Molly has invited two recent Play It Strange graduates to open her shows; Baylie Vinson (Wellington show) and Connor Moore (Auckland).

Molly Payton grew up in Auckland where she first started writing songs heavily inspired by singer songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley and Joni Mitchell.

In the UK she has further developed her music, recording her debut EPs with Oscar Lang and Oliver Barton-Wood (Nilufer Yanya/Black Midi etc).

She has since signed to TMWRK records/The Orchard - readying releases for the start of 2020. Her first EP Mess, out in March, is a collection of bitter yet vulnerable songs about growth and heartache.
